Blue City seems to be trying to split the difference between Beverly Hills Cop and Miami Vice, which makes a movie that was pretty terrible when it came out worse now since it's also very dated. First-time director Michelle Manning is horrible with actors--Judd Nelson gives what is very likely a career worst performance as Billy Turner and even the normally director proof Ally Sheedy is pretty bad. She also completely bungles the film's look--not only is there absolutely no atmosphere or flavor to any of this but she makes Blue City look like a cheap cable movie even though it was a theatrical film. I looked her up on IMDB--after Blue City, which is her first directing credit, the rest of her career as director is listed as three television episodes--she apparently figured out directing wasn't her thing and that her talent was better applied to producing.Read more ›
It doesn't take long to figure out that Billy Turner's stepmom (Morris) and her new husband Perry Kerch (Wilson), the man Billy (Judd) suspects of being his father's murderer, have some sort of past connection. We also immediately question just why Sheriff Luther Reynolds (Winfield) almost benignly tolerates Billy's felonic behaviors, like the disruption of a greyhound race and gunpoint robbery of $30,000 during the confusion, or his trashing a nightclub owned by the despised Kerch (lost in the disco chaos is June Lockhart's daughter, Anne). Even Kerch's shill, Debbie Torres (Carmen) is a blatantly obvious plant to both viewer and young Mr. Turner.
David Caruso as Billy's best friend Joey Rayford adds life to this story until the predictible happens. Billy's rekindled romance with Joey's sister Annie (Sheedy) is painfully trite and superfluous. Action scenes become welcome relief from mediocre acting, as we wait for the inevitable and expected "twist" ending. When Billy and Annie ride off on his motorcycle, the feeling is these kids were fleeing the set of a movie both wished they hadn't gotten involved with.

and the ending (my lips are sealed) is rather unpredictable (good!) Supporting cast and technical
credits are tops. Low marks however for the music "score" which is a bit annoying.
