DVD Review: MIND BLOWN

MIND BLOWN was directed by Christian Sesma from a screenplay by Thunder Levin and Christian Sesma and stars Jessica Uberuaga, Michael Marinaccio, Jon Mack, Sarah Booth, Dawn Brodey, Steve Hanks and action staple Luke Goss.

When a group of telekinetics realize their powers have been used to destroy cities, they take matters into their own hands. Brought together by a high-tech military organization, a group of telekinetics agree to use their powers for the good of humanity. But when they discover they’ve been tricked into destroying cities and killing innocent civilians, one team member takes matters into her own hands. A team of telekinetics—code-named PROJECT MIND BLOWN—has been secretly assembled in a high-tech facility. Their minds have the power to shake the Earth—or bring rain to drought-starved areas. They’ve been told their abilities will be used to do good for humanity. But when evidence suggests that the group has been tricked into causing destruction in U.S. cities, one team member goes rogue—racing against time to uncover a deadly conspiracy in this pulse-pounding action-adventure.

There’s a group of humans in Mind Blown that possess the ability to create earthquakes, tornadoes and firestorms. What happens is, the sides are split and it ends up being a battle between good and evil as these gifted humans with telekinetic powers go up against one another. One side wants to destroy the world (Washington D.C. to be exact) and the other side wants to stop them and save the day. One team member defects and goes on a search for an outsider who also possesses powers of his own. These two pair up and go up against the sinister threat that’s out to destroy the world. But why?

The packaging comes with a slipcover/o-card. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes movie details, some images and specs. The DVD disc has a flat grey finish and only features the movie logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Mind Blown wasn’t that good of a watch and was pretty messy and confusing at times. I mean, why was this all happening? Anyway, there just wasn’t much thought that went into the plot for this sci-fi actioneer which felt like a disaster movie with mutants in it that first premiered on Syfy and we all know how those movies can get from time to time. The story wasn’t too interesting but the movie itself did feature some good acting and pretty cool visual effects here and there. There were also a couple of neat looking action scenes to go along with that but this wasn’t enough to salvage this train wreck. Look, these Syfy movies are hit and miss and sadly this one is a big miss and not a good movie at all. Mind Blown will be available on DVD on October 24th but unfortunately I can’t give this one much of a recommendation. Watch at your own risk!
