Red Eye Review


Good
Horror director Wes Craven has had his share of hits and misses. His strongest work encompasses the iconic (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and the ironic (Scream). His weakest outings give the genre a bad name (Deadly Friend). Red Eye, his latest effort, shows that while he may not drive your fingernails into the armrest like he used to, he still knows how to grab your attention.

The film begins with Lisa (Rachel McAdams), a driven professional, on her way to board the eponymous flight from Dallas to Miami. When the flight is delayed, she meets Jackson (Cillian Murphy), who, after some clumsy flirting, gains her trust. By apparent coincidence, they end up seated together when the flight finally takes off. Unfortunately, Jackson turns out to be part of a conspiracy to kill a Homeland Security bigwig and Lisa is a key to their plans. Jackson tells her that if she doesn't help, a man is waiting outside her father's house, ready to kill him.

OK

Long-time horror maven Wes Craven tries his hand at Hitchcockian suspense in "Red-Eye," and turns in a modest B-movie thriller that's just as invigorating as it is easy to pick apart.

Earning its suspension of disbelief through keen performances and tight storytelling, the movie stars the talented Rachel McAdams ("Wedding Crashers," "Mean Girls") as a balls-in-the-air young manager of a luxury Florida hotel who is taking an overnight flight home from a trip. Standing in line to check in, she meets a handsome, friendly fellow (Cillian Murphy, "28 Days Later," "Batman Begins") and winds up sitting with him on the plane, making slightly awkward, slightly flirtatious small talk that actually keeps the film afloat for a good 20 minutes.

Once their flight is in the air, however, Murphy's charmingly evasive demeanor suddenly turns dark (as do his penetrating blue eyes) as he explains their encounter is no coincidence: A honcho from Homeland Security is about to check into her hotel, and if she doesn't keep quiet and help arrange an assassination, Murphy has a man outside her father's house ready to kill on his command.
