VERDICT – 2/5

 

PROS –
1) Sandra Bullock as Malorie Hayes – a one-woman show.

 

CONS –
1) A story full of loopholes. The core supernatural phenomenon is never explained.
2) The post-apocalyptic drama follows the routine of a typical zombie movie. Only the element of blind-folds is new.
3) John Malkovich – talent wasted
4) The entire blind-folded river journey with two kids is implausible.
