Red Eye Reviews

Joshua Starnes

While not particularly original, Red Eye is immensely entertaining and a fine example of the classic suspense-thriller.

Works extremely well as a fast-paced adrenaline rush, but not so well as an allegory on today's government and security issues.

Quick but satisfying.

Hitchcock, of course, got lots of mileage out of just such absurd plots. But Wes Craven, whatever other strengths he has, isn't Hitchcock.

this mid-air thriller sees the director not so much soaring to the heavens as merely coasting along on auto-pilot.

Terrific casting can work wonders for a movie. If the stars are good enough, logic gaps as deep as the Marianas Trench disappear in the performers' glow.

Fans of the thriller genre will probably be scared and entertained, but seeing Red Eye is more like watching a good television show than a good movie.

The psychological mind-games are played to the hilt, the pressurised cabin air increases the edge-of-the-seat tension and the 85-minute flight time is gratifyingly short.

This is a screenplay so unbelievably bad that not even two very fine young actors and a director known for his knack for suspense can salvage it.

Not the most sophisticated psychological thriller, yet slick fun deftly handled by Craven and his leads.

Just when you thought that Wes Craven was washed-up, back up he comes like one of the killers in his films, teeth bared and meat cleaver grasped firmly in hand.

Strictly B-grade fare, but it has a playful wit and enough genuine tension to make it worth your time and money.

If constructing a thriller could be likened to building a house, then Wes Craven's Red Eye is a perfect piece of architecture: It's clean-lined and soundly structured, without a foot of wasted space or any materials left unused.

Craven serves up a giddy and taut psychological thriller that will have audiences proudly reaching for their assigned barf bags.

The problem is that this film has nothing particularly new and original to make it stand out from the thrillers like, for example, Larry Cohen writes.

Poderia ser um bom filme produzido para a tevê. Como esforço para Cinema, no entanto, é apenas mediano.

It's all too big and too self-conscious, culminating in a third-act chase that makes one preposterous move after another.

I'm not claiming masterpiece stature for Red Eye, just a solid professionalism in the acting, writing and direction that seems inextricably related to the modesty of its intentions.

The movie turns into a complicated duel that depends on precise observation of physical detail and moment-by-moment continuity so closely calibrated that it's impossible to find a wasted shot or an exaggerated emotion.
