Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Stilted, claustrophobic and more stylish than substantial.
Rotten: I have to admire a mainstream movie that's so overwhelmingly bleak, but that's the only real distinction of this dystopian sci-fi drama.
Fresh: There is much to admire about Blindness, but this striking work is all too often undermined by its sense of its own importance.
Fresh: Blindness is not unmissable, and has awkwardly implausible moments, but it succeeds in sucking us into its peculiar world.
The book was amazing. The movie, not so much...
The blind see...
This movie didn't get a lot of great reviews but you have to look a little deeper. The movie was about heartache, redemption and love. It ask the question, "What do we become when we need one another?" I recommend that anyone watch with an open mind.
