Some things never change...
1 August 2006 | by fmarkland32See all my reviews

Michael Pare stars as Sam Browning a psychic soldier who protects the CIA director's daughter from terrorists trying to snatch her and hold her hostage at first the daughter (Janis Lee) is skeptical of the whole affair but when he rescues her and becomes blinded in battle, it is up to Pare to become the psychic one man army the movie promises. One of the things about Blink Of An Eye that I had seen a long time ago back on TV, is that it somehow has aged very well. The whole premise of middle eastern terrorists who have been used as bad guys in the late 80's and early 90's has a timeliness that never seems to change. One of the more curious things about Blink Of An Eye is just how non-flag waving it is during a time where the USA was treated as a righter than right angle against anyone who opposed us. Indeed with our American psychic hero is an Arab good guy fighting against the terrorists as well as an anti-Israel slant which shows the Israeli army willing to force America in a hostage situation to gain political ambitions. Blink Of An Eye is nothing more than an average action flick with a big body-count and a hero who steps up to save the day, however the most interesting factors is the beginning which has Pare and his Arab friend discussing the politics of the Middle East and US. It becomes almost fascinating enough to watch but due to the somewhat sluggish pace and the so-so story the movie rather becomes a flawed action flick with interesting elements.
