‘Blinspot’ gives a very need for speed type feel. Relatively, this episode doesn’t have much to offer in terms of substance but it does use colour, lighting and camera angles to portray a high-speed, action-packed car chase.
The story revolves around a dysfunctional gang of cyborg bandits, in pursuit of robbing a microchip from an armoured convoy vehicle. The episode captures the tension as the suicide mission continues, until it is eventually completed.
The art style is quirky and the dialogues do entertain. The bright colours with smooth camera transition, highlight the intense violence in the episode, which does provide majority of the entertainment in the episode.
The plot is quite simple and straightforward, resulting in the episode not matching up to some others in the anthology. Although there is a plot twist, it doesn’t deliver anything particularly outstanding.
Hence, unlike some of the other episodes, ‘Blindspot’ doesn’t have any underlying theme or purpose to its action. The episode is simple and does prove to be an enjoyable watch. However, for me it was largely a filler after a heavier episode like ‘Zima Blue.’
Aryamaan’s Rating – 72/100
