Blown Away, 1994 film

The story begins in a prison in Northern Ireland. One prisoner finds hidden supplies, he builds a bomb to escape from a hole in the wall! Next there is a hidden bomb at a university in Boston. A police bomb expert disables it just in time! He suffers from the strain. Elsewhere there is a tavern in Boston, we see the escaped prisoner (who watches the bomb expert on TV). This bomber calls to get information on the police bomb expert. We see a party for people. Later there is a bomb explosion! The police bomb expert teaches others his skills. That bomber gets a job as a janitor in police headquarters! [No security checks?] We now know who the bad guy is, and the good guy, so the drama comes from seeing when the police catch the bad guy.

Will a bomb be placed in a police vehicle? Can they be warned in time? What was the purpose in this? That bomber calls the police bomb expert! [Believable? No Caller ID?] Will Leo’s wife and children be targeted? There is a personal motive for revenge here. The identification of the bomber will help in the search. Jimmy’s father makes contact with someone for information on Gaerity. But he is discovered and attacked! His son rushes to his rescue and finds him tied up and booby-trapped with a bomb! We see another dramatic event. Jimmy is upset. His wife tells him who was at the beach house. Gaerity cooks up some chemicals at home. Leo finds a clue, will this lead him to Gaerity? There is more conversation and drama. [Incredible?] There is fight with cartoon-ish action.

Can Leo be rescued in time? Will there be explosions to wake up anyone who is dozing? We see the rockets red glare and other fireworks. Will Leo’s wife’s car have a bomb planted in it? Can Leo reach their car and dismantle the bomb?

If you like action this movie is for you! Lots of U2 music throughout and during the making of this movie as the ship exploded in the movie it actually blew out windows in Boston!

For the 1st 20 years ago for July I have a movie that I hadn't seen since the late 90's or early 2000's until recently this movie could sort of be a so bad it's good movie Blown Away. I couldn't find the budget info for this movie however it made $30 million in The US so I don't know if it was hit or it bombed. It was directed by Stephen Hopkins he directed Predator 2 an underrated sequel as well as the underrated Judgement Night & A Nightmare On Elm Street part 5 which was a sequel that had a lot of problems as well he direct Lost In Space which pretty much ruined his career. It stars Jeff Bridges as Jimmy Dove, Tommy Lee Jones as Ryan Gareiety, Suzy Amis Kate, Lloyd Bridges as Max Forest Witaker as Anthony & Stephi Lineburg as Lizzie. The story is this guy named Gaerity who is a Terrorist escapes Prison in a very stupid way he leaves Ireland goes to Boston meanwhile you have this guy named Jimmy Dove who is on The Boston Bomb Squad he is needed on his day off & has to leave his Girlfriend Kate & her Daughter Lizzie's Birthday Party. Anyway he goes on this call where this Boyfriend has put a bomb on his Girlfriend's Computer she has to keep typing I love you until James can defuse the bomb can cut the wire to stop the bomb when he does he gets her out there then it's show on the news & Ryan Gaerity is watching this he sees James Dove cause he used to be involved in a Terrorist group in Ireland with Gaerity James real name is Liam McGiney he stopped Gaerity from setting off a bomb it would've killed civilians his Girlfriend ended up being killed she was Gaerity's Sister as well. Gaerity ended up being arrested & sent to prison Liam took on the name Jimmy Dove only his Uncle Max knows about. It kind of makes Jeff Bridges character unlikable when you think about it that he used to be The Terrorist.Read more ›
