There are enough thrills during the final third to give Red Eye viewers a few of Craven's patented jolts near the end. But it requires forbearance for both a silly script and uneven pacing to get to that point.

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

There isn't a bit of the plot that is not predictable, but there's always a giddy thrill in seeing someone pop out from behind something where you had not expected him to be.

Wes Craven weaves a masterful staging, right up until Lisa and Jackson get off of the plane.

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

If you've seen its theatrical trailer then you've seen "Red Eye."

Once the plane touches land, things go downhill. The movie devolves into a by-the-book action flick.

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.

A single hour episode of the TV show '24' contains more of the kind of suspense Craven was trying for.

Current 'it' girl Rachel McAdams and Irish heartthrob Cillian Murphy had best hope this one passes beneath the radar at supersonic speed.

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

Red Eye relies on hoodwinking an audience with its tension, so that the sheer illogic of the conspiracy plot can slip by without detection.

A one-trick action thriller that feels like a poor cousin of an episode of 24.

As a Friday night DVD movie, this is passable. As a multiplex movie event, it never leaves the runway.

... slick and unpretentious, it wants nothing more than to be this year's Cellular -- and for maybe an hour or so it succeeds.

'Red Eye' is a movie that flies for a while, but is finally grounded by its heavy cargo of unbelievability.
