My New Gun

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

MGM/UA has finally unearthed this underrated Kathryn Bigelow gem, Blue Steel (1990, $14.95), starring Jamie Lee Curtis as a rookie cop in New York. During her first job, she shoots a burglar in a convenience store, but a slick broker (Ron Silver) steals the culprit's gun before anyone can find it. He begins courting her by daylight while going on a killing spree by night -- as Curtis gets deeper into trouble with the NYPD. Bigelow winds the proceedings up with a potent chase and shootout, during which we really feel the impact. Oliver Stone is credited as a co-producer. The DVD looks great but comes with only a trailer.
