Not a bad thriller. (spoilers)
27 May 2005 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a couple who own a furniture business. Heading home from surveying the future site of their plant in Mexico, they hit a Mexican policeman. Since neither look forward to the rumors surrounding life in Mexican prisons, they decide to quietly head back to California. In other words, they're guilty of hit and run. Thinking they're safe, and admitting the events only to their lawyer, they are suddenly greeted by a stranger who also claims to have arrived from Mexico (Rutger Hauer). The couple believe that he is a witness to their crime and want nothing more than to either get rid of him fast, or keep him quiet with bribes, never trying to let on too much that they know what he's referring to with the numerous hints he drops. But, the stranger has an upper hand in the situation that the couple never accounted for.

I would be reluctant to compare this film, as other viewers have, to Unlawful Entry because of one major difference: the couple themselves were guilty of a crime (to an extent) whereas the couple in Unlawful Entry had actually committed no crime that caused them to be pursued by their crazed assailant. All three main characters in Blindside (Ron Silver and Rebecca DeMornay, who play husband and wife, and Rutger Hauer, who plays the suspicious stranger) are all working around a strategy and a motive because, as is soon revealed to them all, both the couple and their exceedingly weird stranger have good reason for suspicion. The plot, too, is not immediately predictable from beginning to end as it is in Unlawful Entry, but rather, saves most of its crucial mystery until the latter part of the film when the couple must decide how to rid themselves of the stranger. Because the couple are also tainted by their hand in a crime, you are not immediately sympathetic of them, but you may also be initially suspicious upon Hauer's arrival. And, once his true motives are revealed and the crime's events finally given a clear picture, you're strategy changes as well with regards to the characters. It was done rather well.

Asside from Rutger Hauer's incredible weirdness (the synopsis on the box mentioning "bizarre sexual habits," the least of which actually contribute to his creepiness), this made-for-TV thriller may be worth renting. You can at least count on a decent cast as well as a nice constructed story that borders on the hitchcockesque kind of finale.
