Critic Reviews for Blackout
A well-crafted, slice-of-life saga which amply illustrates how easily matters might go from bad to worse in the already-overburdened inner-city when disaster strikes in the 'hood.
there are some terribly cliched threads, including C.J.'s as the doomed upwardly mobile kid from the block, and James as the tormented witness of 9/11
Audience Reviews for Blackout
This movie was bad. I expected it show much more action or drama. What happens? Not much. This is a movie for when you are trying to become bored.
A very good movie with a great plot. Since there's no synopsis yet, here's a little plot summary. In a forgotten neighborhood in Brooklyn during the 2003 summer blackout, the darkness that befalls all the characters bring to light many things.
Hey this is a good movie. I was in the NY black out of 1977 and this one captures the spirit, fear and finally rebirth that occurs during such an event. I cared about the principal characters. Great editing. I give it a good rating. I hope more people see it. t
