Movie Info

On the morning before his wedding, retired criminal Jos (Raymond Thiry) wakes up next to a murdered man with no memory of the previous night or how he and the body got there. Jos soon discovers that a group of gangsters have pinned him as the lone suspect in the theft of 20 kilos of cocaine...and he's got 24hours to get it back, or the life of his bride will be in serious danger. Now Jos has no choice but to creep back into his dangerous former world of nasty thieves and violent drug dealers-all before his wedding the next day! (C) Doppelgänger Releasing

Critic Reviews for Black Out

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Some of the gags are funny, some are stale, and some are stale but still funny.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

A tasting menu of hard-man predicaments that never offer more than a pale introduction to the innocent mark flailing at their center.

New York Times
Top Critic

In terms of character and plot, not one element of the intended wild ride escapes self-consciousness or becomes the least bit involving.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

A self-aware, borderline self-reflexive action-comedy from the Netherlands, Arne Toonen's Black Out is derivative in a way that undermines its wry sense of self.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Black Out strains to shock and offend, but at this point, 20 years after Pulp Fiction, its conception of transgression is so familiar and toothless that it borders on quaint.

The Dissolve

Black Out is just energetic and smartly written enough to make up for its obvious lack of originality.

Audience Reviews for Black Out

UPDATE* still solid, maybe even better the more you watch it. the Dutch version of SNATCH is held together with a strong lead character and a forward moving story, though its hard to not make the comparisons to a better film.
