Critic Reviews for Blink

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (5)

Michael Apted's Blink walks a fine line, but if you're willing to accept it on its frankly formulaic terms, it delivers some good jolts.

Top Critic

A thriller that fails at the death sounds disastrous, but this one is well worth watching.

Nov 30, 2017 | Full Review…

A better film than you'd think, with good, tense performances by Stowe and Quinn.

Jan 23, 2004 | Rating: 3/5

Generic thriller saved by a few strong performances.

Audience Reviews for Blink

I thought the movie was OK. A whodunit. Madeline Stowe plays Emma who hears something strange, but cannot identify the murderer as she has limited vision. Aidan Quinn plays the cop/love interest and it requires both of them to solve the murder. Usually in this type of show, I can guess who the bad guy is, but I guessed wrong in this one.

Good thriller. Good cast. Emma was blind and had an operation. While she was recovering, she witnessed a murder.

Although it wasn't a complete success with the critics, I enjoyed this mystery-drama film. Enjoyed the plot as well as the pair of actors- Stowe and Quinn. Although I don't recall Leonardo DiCaprio being in this film, hmmm...I don't know.
