I'm still not sure what happened at the end, and I don't feel inclined to watch it again.
Milo
There is not a single scene where the two get closer, have some serious talk before she flings her arms around his neck and asks him to come with her.
Ingrid
Michael Haussman uses flashback scenes effectively, but after a while, the movie falls in on itself in its lack of substantiation for its actions.

"Blind Horizon", an amnesia action/mystery with some 'big name' stars, went straight to DVD without ever being theatrically released, so many have 'written it off' as a lousy film; but if you give it a chance, this is actually a very entertaining little gem!

Directed by Michael Haussman, the distributor, Lion's Gate, dissatisfied with the rambling 'director's cut', brought in ace film editor Alain Jakubowicz to punch up the film, and his re-cut gives the movie an edgy, fast-paced 'look', reminiscent of Christopher Nolan's "Memento", especially in the central portrayal of Val Kilmer's "Frank Kavanaugh". A likable 'lost soul', shot and left to die in the desert, who knows vague details of a plot to assassinate the President, he gradually discovers he is not a 'nice' person, and is, in fact, a key player in the high-level conspiracy. But as with Harrison Ford, in "Regarding Henry", his amnesia offers him an opportunity to 'change' his whole persona...if he can survive the attempts to silence him, and conquer his own instincts as a 'hit man'.

Blessed with a first-rate cast, "Blind Horizon" offers many intriguing supporting portrayals, from a likable local sheriff (Sam Shepard), and his politically ambitious deputy (Noble Willingham), to the mysterious 'fiance' (Neve Campbell) Kavanaugh can't seem to remember, and the beautiful nurse (Amy Smart), he'd LIKE to know better, to a mysterious 'contact' (Faye Dunaway), who drifts in and out of his dreams, with missing pieces of the puzzle. Kilmer is, as always, eminently watchable, capturing both the innocent and unsavory sides of Kavanaugh very effectively, and making his climactic actions worth waiting for.

Of special note is the film score, written by the collective group of composers, Machine Head.

Choice. In the end, that is what this film comes down to. It is the ultimate moment in the climax when the choice is made... and... well, you'll have to watch it yourself to discover the 'next' part.

Val Kilmer play a great role, weaving in out from amnesia as well as sounding a bit slow on the uptake. When he becomes insistant that his attack has something to do with an upcomming presidential assination attempt, pieces of the puzzle begin to drop. Enter Neve Cambell, his fiancee although he does not remember her. She tries various things from pictures to talking to coax herself back into his memory but nothing seems to work. Not when he is focused on conspiracy.

Or the beatiful nurse... Amy Smart, who has taken a liking to him.

With several people involved in this smart thriller, the stakes are high. Yet, the suspense is what makes this movie the keeper. There isn't any real explosive action or violence. This film is more plot driven and relies on some character development to propel the action.

When the end approaches, it becomes clear who is who, and who everybody thought everyone else was is not as predicatable. With a stunning performance by Cambell, this film offers up really good jobs put in by an A and B list of actors.

While not so Blind to the viewer, Blind Horizon offers some thrilling insights into the confusion of the human mind.

This thriller has a great line up of stars from Val Kilmer, Sam Shepard, Neve Campbell, and Amy Smart.
The fine direction from Michael Haussman compliments things nicely. This movie is like a film noir.
It is dark and smoky, and this reflects the cloudy vision of Val Kilmer's character who has amnesia and is trying to figure out who he is and what has happened to him. He remembers something vaguely about this place, a border town, which seems to be in the middle of nowhere, and the President of the United States. Some things seem predictable, but then it takes a turn here and a turn there.
What struck me too was the soundtrack which is rich with textures.
Good stuff.

I hunted this movie down for my own personal Kilmerfest, but it really grew on me. The characters are interesting, sometimes novel, and the writing and acting is strong enough to support rewatches to spend time with them. Decent popcorn movie.

Blind Horizon

I bought "Blind Horizon" on DVD because Val Kilmer is one of my favorite actors.

Val Kilmer gives a great performance, as Frank, who suffers from amnesia after being shot. Not knowing anymore who you are must be really frightening. But the character he is playing is not the most likeable, so I couldn't really be sympathetic. There are no scenes that touch on human emotions, like in "Heat" or "Thunderheart", my two favorite Val Kilmer movies.

What makes the movie interesting and entertaining is its complicated plot, the many flash backs, twists and turns, the many questions it raises from the beginning on. I have to admit I needed a second viewing to finally understand most of it, to figure out all the connections between the different groups of people and the parts they are playing. Some questions may still be left open. This movie will keep you busy trying to put the puzzle together until the end.

There is also included the obligatory love story between Frank and Liz, the nurse, which is nice but for my taste this connection was not developed in a natural way, which makes it look a bit unbelievable. There is not a single scene where the two get closer, have some serious talk before she flings her arms around his neck and asks him to come with her.

There are a few more scenes that are quite unbelievable and strange. Like when Frank gets shot at the beginning of the movie he jumps from a fairly high cliff. Nobody can survive such a fall without any broken bones.
