Terrible
22 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

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.
