The scene where CJ meets his fate wasn't intended to be a rain scene, as there was no rain during the actual blackout on August 14th 2003. Production halted several times, in hopes that it would stop. Everytime the rain stopped and the cameras started rolling, it would start to rain again. Finally, the director decided it was destined to be shot this way, thus adding a dramatic effect to the scene. See more »
Blackout is a movie about the blackout in New York that happened a couple of years ago. The movie provides a realistic image of what happened during the blackout and what could happen if you ever encounter a blackout in a similar neighborhood. The only reason why the viewer rating is not 8+ is because most people expect another violent gangster movie and it isn't. Watch this if you feel like watching New York reality-TV. The camera-views are good, the acting is very good and the sound is fine. The sound/music could use some tweaking here and there but it's not going to change the way you experience the movie.
Everyone should watch this movie. Even if the topic doesn't interest you, the movie will have an effect on you and how you will react if similar problems occur in your life.
