(II) (2017)

Critic Reviews



Based on 9 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
Baldwin and Moore generate genuine heat and chemistry together, even in some ridiculous moments.
Village Voice
Moore’s and Baldwin’s forceful personalities power their performances, and these evenly matched partners have now invigorated both a convoluted thriller (The Juror) and a predictable romance (Blind).
The chemistry between Baldwin and Moore is strangely disconnected. The performers aren't bad, but they don't generate any kind of heat.
The result is a watchable, albeit unsatisfying, vehicle for two stars who’ve now made a pair of movies together in which their skills constitute the main attraction, yet who aren’t particularly well-served by either film.
Slant Magazine
At one point, the film makes a bold but foolish move by getting in the ring with Tolstoy, analogizing itself to Anna Karenina in a self-seriously laughable attempt to pass its schmaltzy and contrived romance narrative off for something significantly grander.
One doesn’t need perfect vision to quickly surmise that this sudsy affair among Manhattan swells is a glorified Hallmark Channel melodrama.
The film, directed by Michael Mailer, wanted to be a steamy romance, but it ended up leaden and occasionally laughable.
Blind is bad for many reasons, chief among them how it contributes to the belittling notion that representation doesn’t matter for a demographic that will never be able to see themselves on screen.
Blind stumbles with unlikable characters and a lack of depth, leaving audiences simply wishing for its ending, happy or not.
