In this movie an inept, unthinking, uncaring, moronic policeman blindly follows the idiotic orders of his commander and ruthlessly goes after his own brother in hopes of gaining a promotion. He uses their sick mother as bait which causes her another "attack". Now his brother is doing 20 yrs. for a crime he didn't commit. Later He charges like a storm trooper into a situation that required tact and subtlety and gets his dad killed. In the "happy ending" he pins a posthumous medal on his dad's empty uniform. So the moral of the story is that to be a "Hero in Blue" you need to be dumber than dirt and not care who gets hurt. The acting is below average. Don't waste your time on this one.
