Touch But Don't Look
Richard Ross | 03/27/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Maria Conchita Alonso was 43 years old when she starred in this movie. She's still as beautiful and feisty as she was when she co-starred with Arnold Schwarzenegger in 'The Running Man'. This is what makes this moronic piece of soft-core, which she actually produced, so disheartening. Is this what she's been reduced to in order to snag a leading role? The most recent thing I saw her in was the Sisters Duff masterpiece 'Material Girls' where she plays - what else? - a feisty Mexican housekeeper. Hey, if you wanna see Conchita naked (and who wouldn't?) then check this film out otherwise if you do see 'Blind Heat' you'll wish you hadn't.

Alonso plays the bored wife of a businessman who gets kidnapped and held for ransom. The reasons for her capture are never made clear nor do care. Blindfolded, but not handcuffed, she's thrown into a cell and forced to wait for her husband to pay up. The husband, not sure what to do, is advised to hire a "negotiator" to help him get his wife back. The negotiator is played by the usually exciting Jeff Fahey who instead seems really bored and confused as to what the hell he's doing here. There are some pathetic attempts at action involving Fahey and several masked extras shooting machine guns but they fail to excite. So instead director Adolfo Martinez Solares shoots a couple of steamy sex scenes between Alonso and the best looking of her captors. Naturally the scenes are exciting but they're ridiculous on many levels. First off, I understand she's a bored housewife but why is she suddenly so eager to sleep with a man who has not only kidnapped her but is holding her prisoner as well? Second, she isn't handcuffed so why doesn't she take off her blindfold in order to get a good look not only at who she's letting touch her but at her kidnappers so she can identify them later? I doubt anyone watching these scenes will be concerned with plot logic but I'm just saying. There's no point in going on. The movie sucks, Fahey knows it and Conchita gets naked. Your call."
