"Brian Bosworth has presence; the ex footballer is an attractive leading man and hero figure. His acting ability won't win him any Oscars, but he delivers. In BLACK OUT, he plays banker John Grey who one day steps out in front of a car, gets amnesia and can't remember his previous life. Seems like he may be somebody named Wayne Garret, a vicious killer hooked up with a sadistic cadre led by the irrepressibly bad Brad Dourif. Having Dourif as a forceful kingpin is ludicrous, if for nothing else than his diminutive size. But Bosworth's wife is murdered and he goes all out to find out who he really is, leading him into the arms of a cocktail waitress (Claire Yarnell) and to a seedy nightclub called "Rebels" where the gang seems to hide out.
There are some really implausible plot twists and the way the mystery surrounding Grey is summed up is so quick you almost miss it!
For action, it's a good fun movie."

"Bad acting, bad writing, bad casting all should equal a bad movie, but if your like me and enjoy pratfalls of folly (ripping on bad movies) then this is the ultimate must have. Black Out starring `The Boz' is most likely not supposed to be a comedy, but I laughed almost uncontrollably at times. The first error was to cast `The Boz' as a character with amnesia. This is way outside his range of acting, but since I enjoy laughing at failure this casting was brilliant for me. Watching `The Boz' struggle with his dilemma by having to confront tattooed bikers who are led by probably the most ridiculous villain in the history of film named 'Pain' is hurting my laugh muscle just writing about it. This 'Pain' dude looks like stepped out of a 1920's flapper film, and talks (and runs) so womanly I would begin to just laugh when he is on screen. Pain's co-horts are a laugh riot too. There is a classic scene at the end where 'Pain' gathers the gang around him and offers 10-grand for `The Boz's' head. This normally would be a menacing threat but Pain is so girly the scene comes off as if he is reading a bedtime story to his kids when Pain says "Keep your eyes and ears open". There are many more classic (stupid) quotes & scenes from Black Out that is sure to keep you (the person who makes fun of badness) and your friends quoting this beautiful mistake of a movie for years. I highly recommend this awful film."
