Storyline

A couple visits Mexico to scout a new location for their furniture manufacturing business and hit a cop with their car on the way back stateside. Realizing that if they report it they could land in a Mexican jail (guilty until proven innocent) they clean up the car and return home. A few days later an insistent man shows up wanting a job and insinuating that he saw something in Mexico that he would not want to report, and the couple must make a decision about how far they will allow themselves to be blackmailed.

The three actors keep referring to the vehicle that killed the police officer as a Jeep. Infarct it is a Ford Explorer. I'm somewhat surprised no one caught this. See more »

Basicly a copy of 1992's unlawful Entry but still worth watching
5 February 2003 | by craiglappeSee all my reviews

Blind side is a copy off of 1992's unlawful entry. But is still worth viewing. Rutger Hauer gives his best performance since the Hitcher. It's a story about a guy who stalks a couple who just can't get rid of the stranger. Same story as the movie unlawful entry. Except the stranger in that movie was a cop. Blind side is worth viewing.
