Review movie review See for me
The story of a girl who is alone and has to deal with criminals or psychopaths is the premise of one of the most outrageous films ever. Many movies with similar themes have been released, so the appearance of a movie like See For Me is not something new and can attract the interest of many audiences.
This is because the audience can already guess the plot and how it will end. One thing that viewers most want to know is what is the girl’s process from meeting the bad guy to finally surviving; fun to follow or not at all. For me personally, this movie goes into a movie with a plot that doesn’t really get adrenaline pumping.
At first glance, when you watch this movie, you will be reminded of the story in the movie Panic Room; where 3 robbers, broke into a luxury mansion to get something valuable in the residence. While in Panic Room, the robbers want millions of dollars in bonds, in See For Me, the robbers want a large amount of cash. Almost the same, right?
As previously reported, the story of this film also does not cause adrenaline rush to make us also tense when watching the movie, we tend to raise blood pressure because of Sophie’s stubborn personality. Plus the plot runs normally. The robber who attacked Sophie is not as vicious as other films with the same premise.
The ending of this movie is really random. It is impossible to understand how a blind person could kill a total of 4 armed robbers with just one person’s help from the camera phone she was holding in her hand. Well, if Sophie is Norman Nordstrom, the super blind grandpa in Don’t Breathe, that could very well happen.
But the problem is that Sophie is a blind girl still learning to get used to being unable to see. Isn’t it amazing that you can do such amazing things? Not to mention the end is that Sophie did not get injured and even used the stolen money to train athletes. Hmmm, so who’s the bad guy? Did the robber really want his money back or did Sophie really steal?
