Since no gun was found on the perpetrator’s person or at the scene and none of the witnesses could corroborate Megan’s story definitively that the perpetrator was indeed wielding a gun, she is suspended from active duty. She is quickly albeit temporarily reinstated to the position of homicide detective because the spent shell casing from the bullet used in a subsequent murder had her name carved on it. This murder ends up being only the first in a series. Working on the case with fellow homicide detective Nick Mann, Megan initially has no idea who in her life could be the murderer. In short order, the murderer does show himself to her. He is commodities trader Eugene Hunt who she met immediately following her suspension and who she has since dated. He also implies to her that he was in the supermarket at the time of the hold-up and that he fled the scene with the perpetrator’s gun. The supermarket shooting caused a psychotic break in him which resulted in among other things his obsession with her. However, beyond his implications only to her of being the murderer, Megan has no hard evidence that would stand up in a court of law that Eugene is indeed the murderer. Megan has to convince her colleagues, especially Nick, that she is telling the truth about Eugene, while stopping him from killing again and equally as important stopping him from his continued psychological torture of her.
Plot: Megan Turner, a female rookie cop, gets involved in an armed robbery that goes awry. A witness becomes obsessed with her.

Though this had plausibility issues one could drive a truck through, I enjoyed this movie despite itself. I really enjoyed Jamie Lee Curtis and Ron Silver’s charisma and acting, both when they were falling in love and later when they were at each other’s throats. Very good soundtrack by Brad Fiedel–surprisingly, I liked it much more than Tangerine Dream’s work in Bigelow’s earlier Near Dark. If you can forgive the plot holes and just go along for the ride, it’s a surprisingly rewarding film.
Normally a werewolf movie will have more werewolves in it than this.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
it will leave you BLUE…
This is a bit of an oddity. Usually movies are either really good or really bad all the way through. Rarely do I see a film where there are a ton of good moments, but just as many dumb ones. I mean, this film really tries to take cop movies in a different direction in many ways. Example one: our hero cop is female. Example two: our obligatory psycho is a commodities trader(???). Example three: something I’ve never seen from a movie wacko: he actually hears voices! So many times the killer is without explanation doing what he’s doing. But here, Silver actually has extended scenes where he’s hearing someone(?) and possibly trying to fight them. It’s never explained. Which is where we get into the negative elements, as Silver’s motivation isn’t fleshed out. Was he a psycho before the early scene shootout? Why is he a nut? We never know, except that he feels a certain power in killing. Plus, even though I appreciated the attempt, his freaky moments of hearing whomever come off a bit silly. But back on the good side he has some very effective moments with Curtis, which mix psychosis and sexualitly nicely. The NYC locations are also well used thanks to some nice cinematographic touches. Ah, alas, we must go back to the junk side, particularly Curtis’ cliched superiors. All the typical “My ass in a sling! Mayor’s ass in a sling! Chief’s ass in a sling!” Or TWO superiors, who in reference to a scene from the beginning, falsely say that Curtis blew the guy’s HEAD off. Her shots were grouped in his chest and never at his head. For them to TWICE proclaim otherwise put a big hole in their credibility. Then you have a totally underdeveloped subplot about Curtis father, who is apparently beating her mother. He is rightfully arrested only to be forgiven moments later and back at the house (what is veteran Bosco doing in such a poorly defined roll??). Or how bout when Jamie Lee beds down with a superior…right after the killer has just run off into the night in front of them!!! Tack on an overlong and predictable ending and you have something that started off in the right direction but quickly veered into an NYC pothole.
Jamie Leigh vs Jason
A hackneyed formulaic piece of garbage, where Ron Silver (the bad guy) keeps getting shot but not killed – just like Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th in movies. He is the boogie man, who keeps coming and never stops.
I didn’t see the very beginning but the use of flashbacks helps remind the viewer. I guess they assumed (correctly) you might have been napping.
There is a totally inappropriate love scene a few scenes from the end. “Hey, some guy just killed your best friend and then tried to kill us. Can you believe it?! Let’s make out.”
Of course, the lights are never on in the room when the killer is hiding in the bathroom. There is the obligatory annoying lawyer that everyone wants to punch. And nobody ever believes poor Jamie Leigh.
I will admit, there is a stylization about this movie that keeps you interested. Just no plot to get in the way of the story.
I can’t believe I wasted the time to watch this. Thank god I didn’t pay for it – it was on cable. Save yourself and don’t bother. This movie stinks.
