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.

Though derived from a true story chronicled by Dr. Oliver Sacks in his 1996 book "An Anthropologist On Mars," "Sight" always seems closer to soap opera than case study.

Com o perdão do trocadilho, era melhor não ter visto este filme.

A romantic drama with insights into seeing with the heart and not trying to control the other person.

It's OK. It should not be fiscally encouraged, however. It's the greatest sin of Hollywood - competent but forgettable filmmaking.

A wintry, truth-based, Charlyesque tale of star-crossed lovers about the titular sense lost, regained, and then lost again, i.e., double-negative-nonsense.

Regrettably plays more like a soap opera than a real-life story.

...a movie that allows us to view familiar landscapes with refreshment and open-mindedness...

Since January is usually the time of year that is known as the dumping ground from bad movies, At First Sight comes as a refreshing and sophisticated change of pace.

At First Sight contains the restoration of sight to a blind man, but is more interested in the romance between Kilmer and Sorvino.
