A ridiculously hyped horror film, se above .... Best American Horror
Film in Twenty Years" - NO, it's NOT idiot.
Three young unlikeable burglars decide to home invade
and rob a "defenceless" blind veteran soldier (Stephen Lang)
who lives in a deserted slum part of Detroit. For some reason he's supposed
to have a stash of money hidden in his
house. The money is perfectly legal and why, WHY he doesn't have them
safely in a bank account ?
No, much better to have them at home when he's blind and lives in a
deserted neighbourhood in crime infested Detroit.
The asshole director tries to make one of the burglar
scums, a young woman, to be the hero and the blind old man to be
the scary bad guy, the monster. NO, you fucking idiot of a director,
you don't get it, we want to see the robbers die, and
preferrably to DIE as painful and as prolonged as possible. These disgusting
creeps are the Bad Guys not the old man.
There's an unhappy ending with the robber bitch getting away safely
to California, yuck!
The film was a boring mainstream effort filled with
every cliché in the book. Very disappointing after all the hype,
director will probably have a long stupid career of making boring bad
trashy films, and the guy blurting out the hyperbole
on the Blu-ray sleeve must be a certified idiot. You clown.
