BLINK

What You Need To Know:

BLINK, the latest handicapped lady vs. bad guy thriller, scores points for interesting dialogue and intelligent acting, earns demerits for Twilight Zone contrivances and deserves several personal fouls for unnecessary roughness. Madeleine Stowe gives an excellent performance as a woman with partially restored vision who is stalked by a serial killer, but much solid effort in this film is undermined by raunchy language, steamy sex and sordid crime details.

Content:

(H, LLL, SS, NN, VV, A/D) Humanism; 42 obscenities & 9 profanities; blunt discussions of sexual activities & sexual immorality; prolonged shot of nude murder victim & brief frontal female & male nudity; brief view of character with throat cut, brief but vivid depiction of child abuse & off-screen shooting; and, drinking & smoking.

More Detail:

BLINK, the latest handicapped lady vs. bad guy thriller, scores points for interesting dialogue and intelligent acting, earns demerits for Twilight Zone contrivances and deserves several personal fouls for unnecessary roughness. In the movie, Emma Brody (Madeleine Stowe) has been blind for 20 years, but through a surgical implant of new corneas, has her sight restored. She witnesses a murder shortly thereafter; but, because her sight was still blurry at the time, she struggles with making an accurate identification to police, and the killer begins to stalk her. Emma also arouses the romantic interests of the police detective and her eye doctor, which her background as a promiscuous woman fails to deter. As the clues add up, the police close in on the killer as he closes in on Emma, and the finale is filled with suspense.

To Stowe’s credit, she plays the part of Emma believably and well. BLINK shows its best stuff in the quirky details of her life, whether playing violin with a scruffy Irish folk-rock band or tussling with her seeing eye dog. However, Emma is hardly pure as the driven snow, and her drinking, smoking, foul mouth, and casual sexuality aren’t exactly endearing, even if they are played believably. Much of the solid effort in this film is undermined by excesses of raunchy language, steamy sex and sordid crime details.
