Synopsis: Hoping to walk away with a massive fortune, a trio of thieves break into the house of a blind man who isn’t as helpless as he seems.
The review: the quote on the art poster claims this is the best American horror movie of the last 20 years. That’s not really saying much about the American film industry. The synopsis alone pretty much tells the whole story.
3 thieves break into a blind mans house, blind man dishes out visually impaired justice. Somehow the story takes a turn though and the thieves end up being the sympathetic character. Personally I would’ve rather watched a movie about 50 thieves breaking into the home and Stephen Lang (The blind man) brutally massacres the entire lot of them. There are some tense moments during the film where Lang is walking around trying to find the thieves’ but other than that it’s just a movie about a blind guy with a gun shooting at every noise he hears. The end
I read this was a pretty successful movie financially speaking’ and there’s talk of a sequel; so maybe part 2 will have my 50 theive slaughterfest.
Thinking Stephen Lang is still a badass at the end of the movie: 6/10
Should you watch? 5/10
