Flamboyant Action!
28 December 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Blind gunslinger Armand Assante rides into a town under siege by Mexican bandits, led by villainous Robert Davi. It seems they chased Adam Baldwin's Army regiment and the silver shipment they were escorting into the town church weeks earlier.

With it's vivid heroes and heavies, bright color scheme, and exaggerated action sequences, Blind Justice plays like an entertaining, live action comic-book. I wasn't too surprised to find out that this was in part inspired by exactly that.

This has a nice cast too. Armand Assante is always cool. In a perfect world, he would be an A-list star! Robert Davi never disappoints, especially when he plays a colorful bad guy. Elizabeth Shue is quite appealing as Assante's love interest.

Incredible scenes have Assante riding blind through a wall of flame and being crucified by Davi! The amazing climax is utterly explosive!

HBO Pictures should drop the boring political stuff and go back to making good escapist movies like this.
