A Berenger Noir Without Much To Offer
27 November 2003 | by (Casablanca) – See all my reviews

Rem Macy is a cop that doesn't play by the rules. He's a cowboy who does things his way. Only his way usually means troubles. When a bust goes terribly wrong he gets assigned to a simple case to let time pass and people forget. The hand of a seemingly innocent and honest woman was found on a lake. Rem starts to uncover this woman's life and soon he sees that maybe she wasn't as 'white' as it seemed. The intrigue goes all the way up into the city hall, Chinese triads and its all threatening to blow up right in his face.

True Blue had some potential as a noir thriller with the cliché anti-hero, a cop that drinks like a fish and has a secret in his past that involves the death of his beloved, the reason why he is close to hitting bottom.

Tom Berenger is a wonderful actor. He's in awful shape here but that coincides with the character so no problem there. He does his best, holds the movie together and keeps it interesting.

The rest of the cast is not memorable but they don't ruin the movie either. Lori Heuring and Pamela Gidley are two beautiful women that add to the eye candy aspect and still deliver a competent performance.

Not bad at all. The main problem is the script. What begins as a mystery evolves to a big conspiracy and ends in a femme fatale kind of story that we've all seen before. The plot turns incredibly messy with the audience being confused many times especially since the main characters meaning the bad guys never show up in the movie. They're names without faces, repeated on and on.

Suddenly we don't know where we are and we get double crosses and twists that come out of no where with no logic but still predictable given that we've become familiar with this in many other similar movies.

There's not much to look forward here. Its not a complete waste but it's a shame Berenger is not in bigger and better projects. He deserved it.

Too smart for its own good, True Blue is a confusing mix of dialogues, intrigues, absent characters and a final showdown without real excitement.

I don't advice you to skip it, especially if you're a fan of Berenger. It has some atmosphere and a solid performance from a great actor and at times it is entertaining and somewhat mysterious but in the end it's a disappointing movie.

When you can't handle the script make it simple Cardone, don't try to show off without the skills for it.
