The movie started off with a photographer (Sara) taking photos in a war zone. (Um, does this really happen, because that just looked dangerous?) Anyway, she becomes permanently blind due to a suicide bombing and then we are introduced to her boyfriend Ryan. Ryan has a penthouse. Ryan seems like a gentleman. But Ryan, apparently, stole money from two criminals. One of the criminals breaks into the penthouse, kills Ryan and proceeds to terrorize Sara - blind, helpless Sara. He wants her to tell him where the money is. She, of course, has no idea what they're talking about.
An hour into the movie, the criminals find the money. Boom, movie should be over, right?
They pretend to leave, but hang around the penthouse because they are looking for something else that Ryan stole - diamonds. So the rest of the movie is basically a blind woman being terrorized by men who thinks she knows where these mysterious diamonds are.
The first thirty minutes of the movie were the best thirty minutes. The rest was just blah. I don't find much entertainment in two men terrorizing a blind woman (or any woman) but especially a blind one. That's just wrong. And one of the men even threw the woman's cat off the balcony. (Poor Shadow).
In the end, the criminals turn on each other. (Like we didn't see that coming.) And maybe Sara knows about the diamonds than she leads on...hmm...
I'll give it 2 out of 5 stars. At least it started out good. What did you think about this movie? Leave a comment.
