Blue City Movie Reviews

Good B movie

The film got quite bad reviews mainly because it hasn’t got a lot to do with Ross McDonald’s brilliant novel about a veteran returning to his home town and finding it completely corrupted. This adaptation is more aimed at a teen audience, so the veteran becomes an young man who left as a teenager and the prostitute he befriends becomes a childhood sweetheart. The story is extremely simplified. However, the film is actually quite well made. The storyline and the way it’s told resembles more a Budd Boetticher western about the cowboy who cleans up town. The acting/casting is pretty good, the film is fast paced and well told and Ry Cooder’s soundtrack is absolutely amazing. There is of course a lot of violence, some of it rather mindless but in the end the cocky avenger gets his come-uppance. I found it a very entertaining and really well put together film and also pretty stylish in a Miami Vice kind of way.

No wonder it was a contender for the Razzies.

‘Blue City’ was nearly a contender in all categories for the Razzies in 1986. I can see why and, if you aren’t hung up on a nostalgia trip or your best judgment tainted by seeing your favorite 80s stars in a relatively unknown film, then you’d know why, too.

‘Blue City’ is essentially the story of a hot shot young man (Judd Neslon) avenging the death of his father. He suspects foul play by city officials. And of course, Hollywood movies are incomplete without the love interest sidekick (Ally Sheedy). The problem with this movie is not really the story, but the fact that there is hardly anything to remind the viewer that the movie was meant to be a thriller. Nelson comes off as the most arrogant character, who readily insults even his nemisis. And the villains, despite this, really don’t act like their bothered by this guy showing up all the time and accusing them of his killing his father (whether or not they really did). There seemed to be no sense of emergency or suspense on anyone’s part, save maybe David Caruso in the supporting role. Aside from the Florida scenery and notable actors, this is one movie worth passing up.

Stupid and obnoxious thriller

“Blue City” came and went from theaters pretty quickly, and has been pretty much forgotten today. I picked up a copy of the movie from a thrift store for 55 cents, to see if there was a reason why the movie is now in obscurity. It did not take me long to figure out why… and that I paid way too much to see it. There are many problems with the movie, but I think the biggest is that there isn’t really any character to identify or sympathize with. The biggest offender is the main character played by Judd Nelson. Right from the start he is deeply arrogant and unlikable, so it’s really hard to get involved with his quest to solve the murder of his father. It doesn’t help that Nelson’s performance really rubs the viewer the wrong way. (Actually, EVERY actor in this movie gives a poor performance.) As for the mystery angle of the movie, it is uninvolving, mainly because the investigation moves at an unbelievably slow pace. And Nelson’s character makes a lot of actions that are so unbelievable that you’ll wonder how he’s not thrown in jail countless times, or simply killed off. The climax tries to pull off a surprise twist, but if you have seen your share of thrillers, more likely than not you will have guessed what that twist will be long before it unfolds. I’ll be shortly donating my copy of this movie to a thrift store, so if you happen to see it there, let it remain there gathering dust.
