Standard Monogram programmer
1 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

HEROES IN BLUE is a standard Monogram programmer about a cop and his criminal brother. The plot sees the brother accused of murder thanks to the wiles of an evil gangland boss who seems to have his claws into most of the family. The cop strives to right these injustices but of course the cards are stacked against him.

There's little of interest in this production. The plot plays out in a familiar way and the characters are quite dull and uninteresting, failing to gain the viewer's interest at any point. Sure, the genre trappings are always fun, but HEROES IN BLUE is so cheap and lacking in thought that you won't remember it a day after watching.
