"Blue smoke" is a fast paced film, based on a novel of the same name written by Nora Roberts. This movie has ingredients of mystery and romance, and is likely to please those that are just looking for entertainment.

The main character is Reena (Alicia Witt), a young woman that doesn't like fire but decides to turn into an arson investigator in order to fight her fear. Things aren't easy for her, though, as she loses people she cares about to fire. Traumatized, Reena begins to suspect that a pyromaniac is stalking her, waiting to kill the people she loves. But is Reena right, or is her imagination too active?

All in all, I think that "Blue smoke" is a movie you shouldn't miss if you are a fan of Robert's books, and one you will probably like if you are not. From my point of view, this is not an outstanding film, but I believe it is good enough to engage your attention, and keep it. That is the reason why I give "Blue smoke" 3.5 stars.

This is the second Nora Roberts adaptation that I've seen, after "Angels Fall", and the first one where I've read the book. The book Blue Smoke was pretty good but not without flaws, and the movie shares some of its flaws. The biggest one is how long it takes for Reena to figure out who her nemesis is (although this was less obvious in the movie than in the book). One bad thing that the movie adds is that the climax feels more silly than suspenseful (especially because the bad guy actor speaks in a really silly voice, supposedly because he had cancer - anyway it was way too over-the-top).

I did like this movie better than "Angels Fall", which somehow felt cheaper. Alicia Witt did a pretty good job playing Reena, but the best performance was by the still very beautiful Talia Shire playing her mother. But overall, it's an average tv-movie, no better or worse than most of its kind, but definitely not good enough for a theatrical release. Recommended for Roberts fans and fans of romantic suspense made-for-tv-movies. Others needn't bother.

Readers of Nora Roberts books will doubtless want to watch this adaptation of one of her popular novels (to date there are four of her books translated into made for television movies). The story, as adapted by Ronni Kern, is straight forward with enough of a mixture of love scenes and action scenes to please the audience. No, this is not a major league film, but it is made with a fine cast of actors who bring the drama to life.

Reena Hale (Alicia Witt) watched as her family's pizzeria burned to the ground after a scuffle between Reena's father Gib (Eric Keenleyside) and neighbor Joe Pastorelli (David Brown). Pastorelli is convicted of arson and swears to get even. Jump years later and Reena is now an arson investigator under the tutelage of Officer John Minger (Scott Bakula) who had solved the case in Reena's family's loss. Once credentialed, Reena finds herself stalked by an arsonist who just happens to include two of Reena's boyfriends as victims of deaths by fire. The story is a search and destroy mission to discover the identity of the arsonist and Reena is aided by her newest love interest Bo Goodnight (Matthew Settle) in a taut, well paced and well filmed adventure: if the identity of the arsonist is rather apparent early on, that doesn't diminish the suspense aspect of the film.

The supporting cast includes fine actor Talia Shire as Reena's mother, a role that adds a touch of human comedy as well as unconditional love that lifts the story just when it needs grounding, as well as some very fine fresh faces with promise. David Carson directs the many fire scenes with a good sense of 'reality' and delivers a sound message about the worth of arson investigators and firemen. But in the end it is Alicia Witt's movie and she carries her character well. Good entertainment. Grady Harp, September 07

This movied is not as good as Nora Roberts novel but it comes really close. Alica Witt is good as the female lead. Scott Bakula looks good too, for an older guy. It was nice to see him in a movie again

This is a likely made for TV movie. If you're finding this in physical stores these days you're only paying a couple of dollars for it, it's amongst a wide range of budget DVDs with a big name to get you to pick it up. In fact you can also get this one with three other movies based on Nora Roberts books for the same couple of dollars price the other single movies go for. So I base my rating on the fact you're likely only paying a dollar or two for this or watching it on TV. Of course if you're buying this in a few years time and having to pay a regular movie DVD price or even more, well you might be a bit more critical. But for me, for a cheap budget movie, Blue Smoke, although not as good as Angels Falls and Montana Sky, two of the other three 4 pack movies I've watched so far, is a lot better most of the other movies you'll get for the same price.

Following the formula the cast including the lead are pretty much unknown actors, with the big pay cheque obviously going to Scott Bakula (NCIS New Orleans, although he was obviously famous from other TV shows as Blue Smoke was released in 2007), to have some sort of guaranteed return from fans of the shows he was in. He's not the main character though, he's the fire investigator chief, the main character is Reena (played by Alicia Witt). Reena as a girl watched her parent's pizza restaurant burn to the ground and was fascinated by the flames. She met Bakula when sneaking under the caution tape who told her she was very observant and now as an adult is one of his employees.
