Movie Summary

Kathryn Bigelow
Not Available
Blue Steel is a 1989 crime thriller about a rookie female cop fighting off an obsessed psychopath. Fresh out of the police academy, NY police officer Megan Turner (Jamie Lee Curtis) shoots a gunman (Tom Sizemore) at a supermarket robbery. Unfortunately for Megan, the robber's gun slid away from the scene and was secretly picked up by witness Eugene Hunt (Ron Silver), giving the impression that Megan shot an unarmed suspect. The police take away her badge and gun while she is under review. Eugene, a well-off stockbroker, schemes to meet her and the two begin a romantic relationship. At the same time, murder victims start showing up around the city with Megan's initials carved into the bullets. Megan becomes convinced that Eugene is the killer but she will have to prove the case without the help of her fellow officers. Kathryn Bigelow (Oscar winner for "The Hurt Locker") directs this police thriller.
