Storyline

It's New Year's Eve in New York City and everyone's getting ready to party. Watching, waiting, a man called Hollander has a different kind of party in mind. Alone in her high-rise apartment, Sara has no idea that her boyfriend was a thief. But what he stole - and from whom - is about to put her life on the line. Trapped in the penthouse with Hollander and his sadistic partner, these two will kill, maim, tear the place apart to find a fortune in diamonds. While the party rages outside, inside Sara fights desperately for her life. It's kill or be killed in a pulse-pounding , non-stop fight to the finish - and it all takes place in Penthouse North.

Wait until dark
4 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Michelle Monaghan is a photo journalist injured and blinded in Afghanistan. It seems the bomb that went off in front of her caused no other disfigurement neither does any violence she suffers during the cause of the movie gives her even slight bruising.

She now lives in a luxury apartment in New York with a wealthy boyfriend who says he is an investor but is in fact is a diamond thief.

However Monaghan's life is put at risk as the boyfriend is murdered by the men he betrayed. Michael Keaton is the leader of the pack and Barry Sloane as the ruthless junior partner who having killed the boyfriend without finding out where he hid the diamonds now terrorise Monaghan without once hesitating to think that this blind person may really be not really be in the know.

This is an updated remake of Wait until Dark but a low budget B grade film despite the presence of Keaton. It has bad CGI with a horrible backdrop of New York. The script is at best functional, at worse lame. The acting is routine with Monaghan never once convincing me that she is blind.

The film is directed like a straight to DVD film and that is just what it is.
