Thoughts on Blindfire
Blindfire is a crime thriller that will bring an interesting spin on the police shooting idea in stories. This works very well because the police will face dealing with a potential threat to a minor. Leading them to enter because they believe a life is in danger, while offering up the surprise learning everything from the other direction.
The story will leave you wondering about how this whole case should have been handled, because once the truth comes out, it seems to take a turn that doesn’t make sense with who is responsible for the crime. The performances will show the pain this incident will cause on everything side, because it will have consequences on the family who lost a loved one and the cop because of the guilt he is left with. This is one of those films that will get you thinking more about the bigger picture of the incident involved.
