Blue Steel

Blue Steel Information

Blue Steel is a 1989 American action thriller film directed by Kathryn Bigelow, and starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Ron Silver and Clancy Brown.


Megan Turner (Curtis) is a rookie New York City policewoman who shoots and kills a suspect (Tom Sizemore) with her police-issue .38 Special Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver while he's holding up a neighborhood market. The suspect's .44 Magnum Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver lands on the floor of the market in the shopping area as the suspect is blown backward through the front window.

As she continues to the checkout area, Turner nearly steps on the suspect's gun directly in front of Eugene Hunt (Silver), a commodities trader, who is also a latent psychopath. Hunt takes the gun and slips away, using it to commit several bloody and brutal murders over the next few days. Because the robber's weapon was not found at the scene, Turner is accused of killing an unarmed man.

While the officer attempts to clear her name with Chief Hoyt and her superiors, Hunt begins to romance the suspended Turner in a twisted love fetish. Turner arrests him but he is freed by his attorney, Mel Dawson. He begins to stalk Turner at her family home, an uncomfortable place where Turner remembers her mother being physically abused by her dad.

Turner fights to keep her badge and solve the murders with the help of Detective Nick Mann (Clancy Brown), while trying to figure out her relationship with a killer. Hunt turns up at her apartment, injures Turner and kills her best friend, Tracy. This causes Meg to have an emotional breakdown.

She spends the night with Mann, her fellow officer. Mann is ambushed by Hunt when he goes to the bathroom. Meg doesn't hear the shot because it was muffled. Eugene attacks her and she shoots him, but he runs off. Mann is unconscious and taken to the hospital.

Determined to find Hunt and finish him off, Turner finally shoots and kills him after a long and violent confrontation and a bullet wound to her shoulder. She is taken away by paramedics for treatment.
