An agreeable little adventure film...
23 April 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Blind Adventure" is an agreeable low-budget adventure film and while it won't change your life, it is worth your time.

"Blind Adventure" begins with an American (Robert Armstrong) stumbling into a London home and seeing what appears to be a dead man! He immediately leaves the flat and gets help, but when he returns only a moment later, the body is gone and everyone inside behaves as if nothing has happened and Armstrong is crazy. However, a woman staying there in the flat (Helen Mack) realizes SOMETHING is amiss and the rest of the film is like a jigsaw puzzle, as the two of them and a new friend (Roland Young) all worth together to figure out what's really going on--and with spies, blackmail and the sort, it's all pretty exciting.

While the film is easy enough to forget, it has an interesting plot, decent acting and some agreeable supporting actors. I could say more about the film but I don't want to ruin the mystery.
