Editorial Reviews

This "gripping" (The New York Times) psychological thriller starring Jamie Lee Curtis "hums with an electric current" (Variety) as it vividly depicts a female cop's mental and physical struggles with an obsessed psychopathic killer. Hypnotic and riveting, Blue Steel's "tightly strung" (The Hollywood Reporter) plot will keep you suspended until the very last frame! Rookie cop Megan Turner (Curtis) orders a burglar to drop his gun. He whirls to shoot. Too late. Turner fires, killing him instantly. But she doesn't know that someone has been watching. And when that someone lifts the assailant's gun from the crime scene, carves Turner's name into the bullets and uses them in a series of murders, Turner is drawn into a deadly game of wits with a psychopath who's always one step ahead…and much closer than she thinks!

This was almost more of a horror movie than a thriller, with supernatural elements. I'm only writing a review to clear up some things about the story written by reviewers who gave the movie 1 star, mostly because it seemed that they didn't understand the movie they had just seen. It makes sense that they might not understand it because it isn't a standard "Hollywood" movie: they simply may have never been used to a story told this way, with this pacing, or this level of thought or analysis to it. Nothing was dumbed down or laid it out for you directly. You were supposed to be gathering the story through context and the characters' environments and behaviors. The movie never out-and-out directly tells you, "this is why this is happening." It takes a little bit of thought. (A word of caution, this review contains many spoilers.)

Character development didn't clobber you over the head. A very great part of the movie was about the transformation of the villain (Silver). In the beginning, he is a man who made his money at the stock exchange. His profession and lifestyle and aggressive tactics at work, which were smoothly and quickly laid out before the audience, were intended to describe his character. We learn his obsession with money is actually his obsession with power after he witnesses a criminal getting gunned down by a cop (Curtis). Before he becomes a murderer, Eugene's life is threatened by a thief with a gun in a convenience store. It is in this moment that he realizes the power of the fear of death, firsthand. When the cop, Megan, guns down the thief, he has an epiphany: death can be defeated by whomever kills first. We don't know, but it may have been the first time Eugene ever even thought about dying.

I was beside myself when I discovered this German region free blu ray of the stellar movie Blue Steel. I dont know when it will ever get a US release but now I dont even care. This blu ray has one of the best transfers I`ve ever seen. Its mind blowing. Absolutely gorgeous. I doubt the US release would look this good. The movie is awesome. Jamie Lee Curtis is great in this interestingly different variation of Halloween. Ron Silver is an excellent psycho and its directed by Kathryn Bigelow who did one of my all time favorites Point Break, Strange Days and Near Dark. Don`t miss this movie and the blu ray!

This is a pretty good film which I feel has been overlooked. It's really not bad for as old as it is. I've seen more recently-made movies that don't have as good of cinematography. Professionally filmed; not hokey at all. Jamie does a really good job in her role (as a female police officer in a traditionally-male job), as do all the other actors. There is sexual content, as well as blood and murder, so I would rate it "R"; though there's not so much sex content/exposure as to make it rated "X". No intimate body parts are ever shown--not even T and A.

SPOILERS.... Well I remember now why this got so many bad reviews its very poorly written. Not bad acting at all just horriblly executed, and far out of touch. In fact it started off quite well, and in the end the only thing that woulda made sense was ron silver is the dark half of megan's personality... an imaginary person... but with the other scenes it wouldn't have meshed well either but if the other parts were re-written this could have been a masterpiece but it ended,as though everything we saw was real, and this is why movies in the late 80's were just bad residue of a great decade.... not very good and bad taste

Jamie Lee Curtis is one of Hollywood's more diverse actresses-- from being heralded the "Scream Queen" for such films as HALLOWEEN and THE FOG, to comedic genuis in A FISH CALLED WANDA and TRUE LIES. Her portrayal of a rookie cop who becomes the target of an obsessed stalker (Ron Silver) after her first assignment on the force solidifies her acting abilities and film repertoire. Ron Silver plays the Wall-Street-broker-turned-psychopath flawlessly.
BLUE STEEL is a cop flick with a twist which, unlike many films in the genre, showcases a lead female's descent through the police force. Amir M. Mokri's encompassing and somber cinematography, Brad Fiedel's ambient and chilling musical score, and Kathryn Bigelow's cool, detatched direction, combined with the excellent cast which also includes Louise Fletcher, Clancy Brown, and Elizabeth Peña, makes for a unique, entertaining, and esthetically pleasing film!

I am a Jamie Lee Curtis fan so naturally I disregarded the bad reviews and gave this movie a try. I wanted to like this movie, I really did. Unfortunately, the one star reviewers here are right. I've seen some bad movies in my day and I'm sad to say that this is one of them. I'm the kind of person who hates not to finish a movie so I always suffer through, no matter how much agony I'm in, but I thought about not finishing this one many times. Jamie's character is so annoying you just want someone to punch her in the face. I actually rooted for her to die at the end; that's how done I was with this movie. The actor who plays the bad guy does a really good psycho, but that's about the only positive thing I can say about the film. Let me be clear though, just because he played his part well does not mean that I wasn't annoyed with him too. I was annoyed with the whole movie and I yelled at the moronic characters throughout the film. I'm really disappointed that I will only get a couple hours of sleep tonight because I decided to watch this movie. It wasn't worth my time. Blue Steel is not worth anyone's time. Even if you get this movie free (like I did watching it on Prime), it's not worth the price. Your time is far too precious; even if you use it to blankly stare at a wall for an hour and 40 minutes. Please heed my warning and pass on this film. I wish I had my time back.
