Here is a "truly blue" film in the sense of sensually-oriented noir cop films "blue" material in the sexual area; blue material of cops' uniforms. Tried and true might be an accurate designation in the assessment of This Tom Berenger vehicle. There is little to be surprised by in this grizzled cop obsessed with beautiful damsel-in- distress story. "Rem" Rembrandt so named for unknown reasons is a Detective Lieutenant with "renegade" impulses: rushes into volatile bust scenes with minimal legal support. ("Hello, didn't you hear someone cry for help to cover "reasonable cause" requirement, and blows away several bad guys.) Tom Berenger looks a little shaky as a renegade cop, and as a constant boozer who sneaks the occasional pill. Smokes one on the other. Against orders follows up on a case that involves the beautiful damsel; inevitably falls in love with her and into bed with her, in spite of initial resistance to do so. What obtrudes, in spite of a very effective noir mood rain-spattered streets, alleyway chases and shootings, nude scenes in cheap hotels and T&A bars, and S&M leather, whips and chains scenes (very graphic and authentic, with actual S&M acts)--is the manner in which Berenger ("Rem") moves about, as if so numbed by obsession and booze that his professional judgement long ago left the building. It is the sense that, parallel to the cop-persona we see looking at himself in the mirror at one point Berenger the actor a bit long in tooth and heavy of jowl never really showed up for this film. The plot complications and the interactions with some very effective supporting players, cops and bad guys, spouting raw and r-rated dialog do lead along to deeper and more intense complications. The Lieuteneant/Berenger gets deeper and deeper in his commitment with the girl a very sexy, deceptively simple minded blonde. The ensuing complications involving Chinese gangs, a Chinese wife (Rem's) (murdered by the gangs,) Chinese buddy (Tiger Woo, also muredered by the gangs) set the stage for the final complications. Spoiler possibly averted, The denoument and twists at the end of this otherwise predictable cop noir drama are fairly interesting and satisfying. The betrayers are dealt with and the betrayed restored to some degree. There is a portion of this film dealing with the Chinese gangsters and the policeman in a standoff jockeying for "face" dealing for dollars and social-political position that is very intense, very intelligently acted and scripted that I though worth the price of admission and more. Beringer at his weakest is good; the supporting cast, Barry Newman, the minor characters, and, especiallt the Chinese characters are quite compelling and convincing. An overlooked worthwhile noir mystery for lovers of gritty cop drama. jaime says 6 plus, for those intense face-off scenes and overall effect. Check for other user comments.
