Not Bad, But Could Have Been Better
16 May 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The spy/mystery movie "Eight Witnesses" is not bad as light entertainment, but it is based on an interesting plot idea that is never fully developed. It ends up being a fairly fast-paced but rather routine feature that could have been better.

The story starts with the murder of a scientist carrying important information, with only a group of blind persons as potential witnesses. It's an interesting premise, but after one scene in which the witnesses are questioned, it moves on to more routine material.

What follows is nothing exceptional, but it does move pretty quickly, and it is not very long. Dennis Price and Peggy Ann Garner, as the two leads, work all right together. If you like mysteries or spy stories, "Eight Witnesses" probably has just enough to be worth a look.
