Well Crafted Thriller, Except for Preachy Political Message
9 June 2016 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

The Blackout is a well-crafted film from the start about a global blackout and its impact on one local area. The acting is superb and there is ample tension throughout its duration. It bogs down a little at times with mundane dialogue, but overall the pacing is good. The film is a study of human behavior during a time of serious crisis and it plays out in a fairly realistic manner. There is an obvious anti-gun bias evident, especially at the end of the film, where it seems that everything would be fine if there were no guns. Well, realistically, in a global blackout that lasted for any extended period, everything would not be fine--guns or no guns. In a world so dependent on modern contraptions and conveniences, most of us would not know how to survive in their absence--not for long anyway. In the end, it is a good film, but personally I could do without the political message.
