Mikey (Billy Zane) is a washed-up musician who had one hit back in the 1980's and since tries to get his career back on track again, something that was hampered by drug and alcohol abuse way too long, but now he's sobered up - yet his career is still going nowhere, until one day, Matty (Estella Warren) enters his life (and studio), and she proves to be not only a talented, attractive singer but also a better songwriter than he is ... and yet she seems totally devoted to him from day one, but also manages to seduce him before too long, even though he theoretically wants to stay faithful to his wife Joyce (Jane Wheeler) - but then again, he also wants to stay away from drugs and booze, and doesn't succeed in that, either. Repeatedly (and half-heartedly), Mikey tries to break up with Matty and get his marriage back on track, but he never really succeeds ... 

Then though, Matty turns out to be a psycho bitch, who at one time drugs him and ties him up - but then lets him escape and report everything to the police, only to accuse him of rape in the process. Eventually, Mikey arrives at Matty's place for a showdown - and she stabs him in cold blood. Only when dying he finds out that Matty was actually a killer hired by his wife, who wanted to get her hands on the insurance money, and Matty had only started an affair with him to get out of killing him scot-free ... and it works, too.

 

If you blend Fatal Attraction with The Wrestler, this is pretty much what you get. And even though these two films seem to be uneasy bedfellows, Blue Seduction has its merits, these mainly being Billy Zane, who plays his washed-up musician as a parody of Mickey Rourke's washed up wrestler, as an intentionally pathetic clown who's the funniest when he tries to be cool. That said, Blue Seduction as a whole certainly lacks the emotional depth of The Wrestler, and its flat direction totally gives away the film's made-for-television origins, as does the story that promises much but then avoids any sort of even the slightest provocation and stays firmly in the middle of the road, making this, Billy Zane's performance aside, a pretty uninteresting little movie.

Not the worst maybe, but not worth seeing either.
