Critic Reviews for At First Sight
Director Irwin Winkler takes a thudding and detached approach to Steve Levitt's humanistic screenplay, but tart turns by Val Kilmer and Kelly McGillis provide the material with the conflict it requires.
Most love scenes seem forced in 'At First Sight,' and the background music manipulates emotions without a trace of restraint.
Kilmer registers little emotion aside from a silly grin he perpetually wears throughout the film.
At first sight this film is terrible. At second sight, it's even worse.
At First Sight, at second sight, at third sight - it doesn't matter how many times you look. This movie never decides what it wants to be.
Audience Reviews for At First Sight
It is an interesting observation that even if your eyes can see, you have to learn to see. The love story angle is a bit predictable.
I have no idea why Val Kilmer tried to pretend he was Batman....when it's obvious this is what he should be doing. Great work by him. A sad story. And a great Steven Weber stealing the show....that guy is gold
I really found myself to enjoy this little film. Very neat.

|Phil Webster:||Virgil, you can see a lot, but none of that matters if you lose sight of what you want.|
|Virgil Adamson:||Seeing sucks.|
|Phil Webster:||Basically, your eyes work, but you brain hasn't learned to process the information. You are mentally blind.|
