    Synopsis


    Blown Away
    Opening within one month from each other in 1994, Blown Away invited many comparisons to Speed. Both are pyrotechnical displays involving mad bombers and a multitude of flying building debris and body parts. The cop and the mad bomber in this one are Jimmy Dove (Jeff Bridges), a veteran of the Boston Bomb Squad planning to retire from the force, and Ryan Gaerity (Tommy Lee Jones), a revenge-crazed explosives expert who has recently escaped from a detention center in Northern Ireland. It seems that Gaerity is out to get Jimmy and has been nursing his grudge for the past twenty years. Back in his Irish past, Jimmy, then known as Liam, was a student of Gaerity, who constructed bombing devices for the IRA. But when Gaerity's bombing plans included the killing of innocent civilians, Liam opposed him and thwarted his efforts. As a result, Liam escaped to the United States to become Jimmy, and Gaerity was arrested and sent to prison. But now that Gaerity is out of jail, he is traveling to Boston to wreak havoc upon the city in revenge for what Jimmy has done to him. His plan is to create so many bombings in Boston that the bomb squad's strength will be depleted, allowing him to get to Jimmy and his family. The goal? Blowing up Jimmy's wife (Suzy Amis) and stepdaughter at a Boston Pops concert. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      Awesome action movie from 1994, staring Jeff Bridges, Tommy Lee Jones and Forrest Whitaker. It combines action and an intelligent script with great acting performances from Tommy Lee Jones and Jeff Bridges.

      Very underrated 90's action flick! Tommy Lee Jones is great as the villain and Jeff Bridges is just as good as the hero. Great supporting cast and an interesting storyline make this a must see for any action junkie.

      This movie may not have the most amazing script, but what it lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in the explosions and acting department. Literally - the best movie explosion of all time is in this film!

      Tommy Lee Jones is clearly having a lot of fun in this villainous turn and Jeff Bridges gives a compelling performance.
