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.

What to Expect: Penthouse North (Blindsided)
23 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why You Might Like It: For starters, it was good to see Michael Keaton back on screen and he does a fine job in this movie. Of note, all of the cast put on solid performances. This film is filled with suspense and has a few twists and turns that make it a fairly entertaining film. There are many better films in this genre, but the story is good enough to keep you engaged throughout. Overall, it is a slightly above average thriller/suspense film that is mainly carried by the acting instead of the content itself.

Why You Might Not Like It: If movies with a large amount of unrealistic moments bother you, then you should skip this movie. There are many flaws and issues that will bother you if you don't go with the flow and just watch the movie at face value. As mentioned, this movie is fairly average and predictable so you won't be seeing anything outstanding if you choose to watch it. Possibly the most obvious knock is that the lead character's blindness seems to improve as the movie progresses, which is the main reason for much of the unbelievable moments in the film.

Acting/Casting: 6.5*

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 5.5*

Plot/Characters: 5.5*

Entertainment Value: 5.5*

Total - 6.5+5.5+5.5+5.5 = 23/4 = 5.75 - Worth a watch
