English Summary:

Blue Steel is a 1990 American action thriller film directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Ron Silver, and Clancy Brown. The film's plot follows a rookie police officer who learns she is dating a serial killer.

The film was initially set to be released by Vestron Pictures and its offshoot label Lightning Pictures, but it was ultimately released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer which acquired the film due to Vestron's financial problems and eventual bankruptcy.

Lawrence Kasanoff, Vestron's head of production at the time, green lit and produced the movie.

 

 Megan Turner is a rookie NYPD officer who shoots and kills a robber with her service revolver while he is holding up a neighborhood supermarket. The robber’s Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver falls to the ground and lands directly in front of Eugene Hunt, a commodities trader and one of the customers lying on the floor. Unnoticed, Hunt takes the gun and slips away. Because the robber's weapon was not found at the scene and the other witnesses are unclear about seeing a handgun, Turner is accused of killing an unarmed man.

While she attempts to clear her name with Assistant Chief Stanley Hoyt and her superiors, the suspended Turner begins dating Hunt, who has become obsessed with her. Unbeknown to Turner, Hunt has taken the gun and started committing random killings. At the first killing he leaves behind a spent shell on which he has carved Megan Turner’s name. One night, at his apartment he displays an unusual interest in Megan’s gun and her shooting stance. He reveals that he was in the supermarket at the time of the robbery, and that he left with the perpetrator's gun and that he is the person behind the recent killings. Turner arrests him but he is freed by his attorney, Mel Dawson, due to a lack of concrete evidence.

 

German Summary:

Die junge Polizistin Megan Turner erschießt an ihrem ersten Arbeitstag in Notwehr einen bewaffneten Räuber. Der zufällig anwesende Trader Eugene Hunt nimmt die Waffe des Verbrechers an sich, weswegen sie nicht sichergestellt werden kann. Turners Vorgesetzter bezweifelt, dass sie in Notwehr gehandelt hat und suspendiert sie vom Dienst.

Turner und Hunt begegnen sich einige Zeit später, kommen sich näher und flirten miteinander. Offenkundig leidet Hunt jedoch an einer Psychose, hört wahnhafte Stimmen und hat nach dem Überfall eine Obsession für Turner entwickelt. Mit dem gestohlenen Revolver aus dem Supermarkt-Überfall begeht Hunt willkürliche Morde, in den Mantel der verwendeten Patronen hat er zuvor den Namen Megan Turner eingeritzt. Bei einem Rendezvous stellt Turner entsetzt fest, dass Hunt der von der Polizei gesuchte Psychopath sein muss. Sie lässt ihn festnehmen, er wird jedoch mangels Beweisen freigelassen und tötet anschließend ihre beste Freundin vor ihren Augen. Turner kann jedoch während der Tat sein Gesicht nicht sehen und ihn deswegen nicht identifizieren. Er kommt unbehelligt davon, sie wird von seinem Anwalt als psychisch labil dargestellt.
