The plot device of "woman in trouble meets woman triumphant" has grown a little long in the tooth lately but that doesn't mean it doesn't work.
October 26, 2016
The movie gains an effective footing by, basically, thoroughly exploiting one's fear of being blackmailed into something dangerous.

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

September 26, 2009
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.

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.
January 7, 2006
Not the most sophisticated psychological thriller, yet slick fun deftly handled by Craven and his leads.

Sure, it isn't the most original cookie in the jar, but that doesn't make it any less tasty, this slick B-movie thrill-ride breaking out as one of the summer's most white-knuckled surprises.

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.
September 26, 2005
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.
September 10, 2005
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.
September 6, 2005
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.
September 4, 2005
Craven is back on fine form with Red Eye - easily one of the finest suspense thrillers of the year.
| Original Score: 4/5

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.
