We gave it a B+

Blind woman in jeopardy? Oh, puh-leez, we heard and saw and rented that one back when it was called Wait Until Dark and See No Evil. This time, in Blink, the heroine isn’t exactly blind, but her new corneal implants have a way of schizing out, making her a most unreliable murder witness. Luckily, she’s played by Madeleine Stowe, whose glorious impatience gives the character an edge that most pallid thriller victims lack. Aidan Quinn is the gruff cop assigned to protect her, and for fans of sicko movie villains, there’s one with a motive you won’t see coming even if your vision’s 20/20. B+
