Not much to see here, actually... pardon the pun!
5 November 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I had not heard about the 2019 movie "Blind" from writer Joe Knetter and director Marcel Walz before now late in 2020 when I sat down to watch it. I glanced over the synopsis and it seemed interesting enough, and the movie's cover also helped win me over.

So I sat down to watch it, and turns out that while the movie definitely was watchable, it just wasn't a fulfilling movie. I feel like director Marcel Walz squandered so much potential, and the movie ended up being somewhat as a less than mediocre experience. This wasn't an outstanding movie experience.

I will say that the movie was nicely enough acted out, and lead actress Sarah French definitely carried the movie quite well with her performance.

One thing that puzzled me was the text to voice modulator, how quick it was to spit out full sentences, even if Luke (played Tyler Gallant) wasn't really typing or pressing much, that just made no sense to me.

And then there was the thing with the slasher or the madman in the movie. That was just a very anti-climatic villain to have in the movie. There were so many other ways that writer Joe Knetter could have managed to put together a more devious and memorable bad guy.

Storywise, then "Blind" was pretty straight forward, but don't go expecting a rollercoaster of thrills and excitement, because then you will be sorely disappointed.

All in all, while the movie is watchable, it was not overly enjoyable or entertaining. My rating of "Blind" lands on a less than mediocre four out of ten stars. There are far better horror movies out there that is centered around a blind protagonist.
