Overview

An international collection of second-string actors grace the cast of this bargain-basement Sergio Leone knock off. Terence Stamp stars as Azul, the son of evil Mexican bandit Ortega (Ricardo Montalban). Although Azul is a mean, low-down, varmint like Ortega's three other sons, there is a slight glimmer of goodness in his soul since he is adopted. He proves it when he kills one of his brothers who was attempting to rape beautiful Texan maid Joanne (Joanna Pettet). Renouncing his adopted family and claiming a new moniker by the name of Blue, he helps Joanne and her father on their farm, and soon Blue and Joanne are in love. Remorseful at the loss of Blue, Ortega tracks him down to regain his love. Instead, Blue rejects him, and Ortega, humiliated and disgraced by his son's rejection, gathers together an army in order to return to wreak revenge upon the Texans. Now Blue must organize the Texans into a fighting force to face the bandit army of his father.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Blue has a very arresting pre-credits sequence that promises it might be an interesting Western. That promise is not fulfilled; indeed, as the film continues along, revealing itself to be an incredibly dull and actively annoying picture, one begins to wonder if perhaps one imagined that opening, and to worry that perhaps the weariness brought on by the rest of the film caused one to hallucinate the opening. Bad films are nothing new, of course, and on occasion their awfulness can be cause for a perverse kind of celebration. That is sadly not the case with Blue, which is entirely too earnest to be any fun at all. Eventually that earnestness becomes pretension, and after that most viewers will become irritated that they have spent so much time on the film. Those that stay, hoping that it will get better, will be sadly disappointed. The screenplay is dreadful, but no better is Silvio Narizzano's inept direction, which is lacking in pace, point of view and style. A talented cast is, at best, lost at sea; at worst -- and I'm looking at you, Terence Stamp -- the actors are embarrassing.
