Format: DVD
The highlight of this pyrotechnically superb thriller is midway in the film when the audience and hero Jeff Bridges thinks a bomb has been placed in his home, to kill his new wife and daughter. The camera pans in on several normal things, with such intensity and ferocity, you're sure the house is gonna blow: a gas stove has never seemed so menacing.
While BLOWN AWAY doesn't have the most original of plots, it has a sincerity and intensity that buoy the movie along, with several expertly filmed sequences. Bridges rushing to save his two friends from an exploding truck; Bridges watching as his uncle (played by Lloyd Bridges) is wired to blow; the climactic explosion on the Dolphin--these are outstanding set pieces, expertly helmed by Stephen Hopkins.
Jeff Bridges is marvelous in his role, ably supported by his aformentioned father; Suzy Amis, Forest Whitaker and the devilishly profane Tommy Lee Jones.
Hold on to your seats and ignore the critics on this one---it delivers explosively!

Both movies are about bombs and while this is not as popular as Speed I find it much more interesting in terms of character and mood. While I couldn't care less if Keanu got blown away or not.
Most IRA movies made in Hollywood are always critisized for weak plots and the actors not sounding like real Irishmen. While this is generally true (Brad Pitt in the Devil's Own) it certainly isn't for Blown Away. Tommy Lee Jones is quite convincing as a deranged IRA bomber who goes after Jeff Bridges in revenge for betraying him 25 years earlier.
Stephen Hopkins uses his fave cinematographer and composer Peter Levy and Alan Silvestri to bring some visual style and a powerful musical score to accompany the action and explosion scenes. The final encounter between Jones and Bridges is WAY cool. Trust me. It's one of the best showdowns in history.
A cool use of widescreen photography captures a pleasant and eye-pleasing view of Boston. I only ever saw this city in Cheers previously and now it makes wanna visit. This film was overlooked in the summer of 1994 because the audience was too busy with Keanu foiling Dennis Hopper. But Speed was just about a bomber wanting money. Blown Away is a more personal, character-driven film and definitely the superior of the two.
The DVD is in great looking 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen and has an incredible Dolby 5.1 soundtrack. Keep an eye on the bricks in your house. The might just crumble!

The film is a nifty cat and mouse game with a IRA terrorist after a police bomb expert. Tommy Lee Jones plays Ryan Gaerity, an IRA bomber, who holds a grudge against Jeff Bridges. Bridges is currently a bomb expert (via training with the IRA - same as Tommy Lee), however, he has moved and remade his life. Only, Tommy Lee has tracked him down and is coming after not only Bridges, but his family.
Once again, Tommy Lee puts in one of his 110% percent, brilliant performances that can make any film worth watching. However, Bridges also gives a great job as his target, and you have the extra joy of watching Lloyd Bridges (daddy) playing his Irish Da in the movie.
Suspenseful, great actions sequences, tension-filled/nail-bitting defusing of bombs make this one a great action adventure film.

Even though there's only one 1-star review of this movie, I still saw a number of reviews that say that Blown Away has little or no plot and is mainly just action/explosions. Those reviews couldn't be farther from the truth.
Blown Away teaches a valuable lesson: its ok to put a friendship at stake if its for a good cause. When Jeff Bridges left Belfast, Northern Ireland and changed his name, it was after his former friend, played by Tommy Lee Jones, was put away in Castle Gleigh prison in Northern Ireland. It seems unrealistic to see Jones' character ever breaking out AND finding Bridges, but he uses his own talent with building explosive devices to escape prison and he spots Bridges, whose name changes from Liam McGivney to Jimmy Dove on the screen.
Without spoiling anything, Tommy Lee Jones' character, Ryan Gaerity, does kill friends of Jimmy Dove, and the deaths are followed by very well-crafted scenes that seem to convey the emotion, pain and suffering of Bridges very effectively.
Both Jones and Bridges are well-cast and suitable for their roles. They both portray the Irish descent very believably, especially Jones (who, in the same year, 1994, did a pretty bad job of trying to sound southern in the movie "The Client").
I saw this movie for the first time when I was 13, and at that time i wasn't supposed to be watching it because it was rated R, and now, at 20, I still watch it and consider it one of the most underrated movies ever just because critics think that the high presence of explosions takes away from the plot. Its a shame that it didn't get better reviews, but, Tommy Lee Jones went to Harvard to learn how to act, and he sure did a good job in this movie. He won a few awards as best villain, deservedly. Today, movies like "The Matrix," are bringing in millions for not having a plot. Go for "Blown Away." You'll be glad you did.

The movie itself is not all that great, and largely due to Tommy Lee Jones' super-fake Irish accent and the movie leaves much to be explained. BUT, if you're into explosions, this movie definitely has some good ones, not to mention some pretty cool bombs and tricky boobytraps which will catch the interest of most of you pyromaniacs out there!
