Review by

This oddball mix of action and crime thriller isn't what anyone would call good but it is compelling its own bizarre way. The characterizations and dialogue are negligible in quality but have enough eccentricity to be entertaining. The same can be said for the unusual plot of Blind Rage, which clicks along at a snappy pace as it surges from one absurdity to the next. The performances mostly have an odd, disconnected flatness to them but this strangely adds to the surreal nature of the goings-on instead of working against them. The liveliest acting comes from D'Urville Martin as the nastiest of the blind bank robbers and Fred Williamson, who lends a certain b-movie cool to the film in what amounts to a glorified cameo. Efren C. Pinon's direction is a bit lacking in style but it compensates with a raw, bad-movie kind of energy that lives up to the script's sense of drive. In short, Blind Rage is a cinematic throwaway but it is likely to hold a certain amount of interest for schlock devotees.
