Don't be blindsided by B grade appeal in Rutger'ish film
3 January 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I must say, I'm actually glad I decided to watch this. I love Rutger Hauer and his movies. I don't think there's one I've ever disliked. This story is about a couple returning from one of their hot spots, oblivious to the nightmare that's waiting for em. You can only take your eyes of the road for a second, before you accidentally hit someone. We've seen this scenario many times in other movies, where the innocent culprits panic, and cover up the incident, and again here, someone was watching. What's more, the victim was a cop, and they are in Mexico. They're stopped by customs, looking for drugs or something, where they try to keep their nerves keep intact, not easy, when considering they previously doused the windscreen, free of blood, whatever. Their grill too damaged, some specks of blood still on it. Now back in town, as well as getting their grill fixed, they consult with their friend-lawyer, (Jonathan Banks-can you believe that?) what had happened, the poor sob knocked down, his brains sticking out of his skull. She is shockingly accurate in her description. What I remember, the couple (De Mornay and Silver who I liked in this) ran a successful antiques business. And guess who shows up at their door, from Mexico, no less. Rutger, a con man, wanting a job. He's great here, his best role in years, and funny too. That's almost the reason I keep watching it. Now making the couple somewhat paro, he slowly manipulates his way into their lives, giving hints and references to what happened down in Mexico. They give him a job, in the early part of his manipulation, where he literally jumps at the chance, becoming family, living in his RV. parked outside Silver's house. And you should see his R.V. Rutger keeps playing them, where they begin to suspect him more to the point of absolution, but by then he's really got em. It's like this psycho is always one step ahead. After Rutger has some rough sex with a female colleague, to the point of giving her a shiner, and he shows up with a certain cop's badge, the couple realizing they have to get rid of this guy for good. There's a great scene here, Silver truly at a loss, driven into a corner, where he absolutely loses it in his shop, after calmly threatening to kill Rutger. But there's more to this story, where the goodies have to outsmart the bad guy. Mornay's character who falls pregnant, losing the baby from stress, immediately reminded me of Pacific Heights, the same occurrence from the effect of a crazy. Blind Side is one of those straight to video thrillers that's a good pick out of the not so good bunch, It's just as good as a lot that hit the big screen, but frankly, it does have more video appeal. It plays itself well, our three players making it work, but ultimately it's Rutger's film, even if watching this love to hate villain get electrocuted, not the most pleasurable of scenes.
