Not an easy movie
This movie is difficult to classify, at Barnes & Noble it is kept under Horror/Thriller though aside from the plot point of "Blindness" this could easily fall under Drama. As others have said the film is about this blindness disease that makes everyone start seeing white at all times. They never go into the medical "why" or "how" of how this happened. This isn't that kind of film. It shares with "28 days later" the apocalypse type scenes of entire city streets abandoned due to something no one understands. And what different people do because of that, and that is the part where "Horror" and "Drama" mix.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The first half of the film features the first group of blind as they try to cope with their disease and hope for the best, they even try to get along in a government ward with little provisions and no supervision. As more people come into the ward and differing personalities start to collide the film becomes extremely difficult to watch and proves to a be a very strong "R" rating.
The second half, after the group leaves the facility has an oddly freeing quality after having been stuck in the wards. Even as an audience not knowing what is being done in their outside world to help them is affecting. Not in the least an uplifting film, I found the movie to be interesting and intellectually stimulating. A film I would recommend and definitely interesting to watch and discuss afterwards.
