Impressive for a small project, but a pretty bad movie otherwise
I liked the atmosphere of the movie a lot. They used a lot of green screens and then stained glass and grained film effects to create a surreal feel of the whole movie. That helped a lot with the suspension of disbelief which, let's face it, it's needed to even watch Snowblind.
The plot was pretty weird, in an post-apocalyptic world, with an evil "governor" hiring a gunslinger to kill another gunslinger so he can get his wife. A surprising move for someone who gets to use an entire army whenever he feels like it. I watched it, though, because of the said visual effects and the obvious effort that went in the film. They lost me when the black guy came out of the snow and then started singing. Of course, that is not characteristic of the film, but the scene just threw me off completely. The ridiculous gun battles that followed closed the deal.
Bottom line: an interesting experiment in movie making, Snowblind is distributed freely through Bittorrent in the Vodo network and funded by donations. As such, it is a decent effort and the makers have obviously invested quite a deal of effort in doing it. However, as entertainment value goes, it is pretty weak.
