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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Craven is back on fine form with Red Eye - easily one of the finest suspense thrillers of the year.

Craven's direction is brisk and efficient - he packs in fights, chase scenes, suspense sequences and explosions and still manages to wrap up the movie in just over 80 minutes.

Rare these days is the thriller that takes its time, allowing us to get comfortable with the characters before starting the chase or inducing the shocks.

No screen fatigue here. Red Eye is a lean, focused work that concentrates much of its claustrophobic terror within the not-so-friendly skies.
