A silly (but irresistable) premise wasted
20 March 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Of course, the idea of hiring five blind guys to rob a bank is pretty ludicrous. Though the movie DOES at least go to the trouble to show the men training for an extended period of time, and admit it - who could resist that premise? Sadly, the movie pretty much wastes it. It's slowly paced, and lacking excitement, even in the actual bank robbery. And Fred Williamson doesn't even appear until the last ten minutes! I'm curious as to why he is playing his Jesse Crowder character, since he made that character for his personal projects. Anyway, Williamson does provide a little spark (even though he seems to be sleepwalking here), though it's not enough to save things. I won't be surprised if Hollywood eventually remakes this movie - whatever the results, it will have to be better than this.
