James Milstead’s review published on Letterboxd:
BLOWN AWAY (15)
D: Stephen Hopkins
MGM/Trilogy (John Watson, Richard Lewis & Pen Densham)
USA 🇺🇸 1994
W: Joe Batteer & John Rice
DP: Peter Levy
Ed: Timothy Wellburn
Mus: Alan Silvestri
Jeff Bridges (Jimmy Dove / Liam McGivney), Tommy Lee Jones (Ryan Gaerity), Lloyd Bridges (Max O'Bannon), Forest Whitaker (Anthony Franklin), Suzy Amis (Kate Dove)
A cliché-ridden, plot hole-filled thriller about a Boston bomb disposal expert trying to foil the maniacal schemes of an IRA bomber.
Tommy Lee Jones' Irish accent is quite laughable and the film has very little to generate interest throughout the duration of its lengthy running time.
