Editorial Reviews

Sydney Wells (Alba) is an accomplished, independent, Los Angeles-based concert violinist. She is also blind, and has been so since a childhood tragedy. As our story opens, Sydney undergoes a double corneal transplant, a surgery she has waited her whole life to have, and her sight is restored. After the surgery, neural ophthalmologist Dr. Paul Faulkner (Nivola) helps Sydney with the difficult adjustment, and with the support of her older sister Helen (Posey), Sydney learns to see again. But Sydney's happiness is short-lived as unexplainable shadowy and frightening images start to haunt her. Are they a passing aftermath of her surgery, Sydney's mind adjusting to sight, a product of her imagination, or something horrifyingly real? As Sydney's family and friends begin to doubt her sanity, Sydney is soon convinced that her anonymous eye donor has somehow opened the door to a terrifying world only she can now see.

Perhaps I enjoyed this movie more because I went into it with very, very, very low expectations. The plot and premise seemed flimsy and ridiculous, and even though I do like Jessica Alba, I wasn't sure decent acting could save a plot that seemed so trite and boring. But partway through my opinion began to change. I decided this isn't really a horror movie, not in the classical sense of what has taken over the horror genre (gore like Saw and Hostel). It's a supernatural mystery with a bit of suspense, if you want to get long-winded and technical. Nothing about it was implicitly scary, but it was interesting and drew me along. I wanted to see the end, and not just to find out if I'd won the classic 'guess who survives' horror movie game.

Sure, the premise is implausible and the entire story is completely unbelievable, but it was an entertaining movie and was fun to watch. I don't ask for realism in my movies (okay, not most of the time!), all I want is to be entertained and this movie, while neither greatly original nor brilliantly written, was enjoyable enough. Horror/suspense fans looking to pass an eventful evening would enjoy this one, but if you're looking for more than that, don't bother.

The moment this movie was announced, the Cruise/Wagner produced remake of the Hong Kong film, The Eye, was destined to be hated or loathed. However, unlike the film that comes afterward, Jumper, which was terrible in every aspect of the word, there's no merit to the low ratings this film's gotten (you know, other than personal opinion and disdain for Jessica Alba). I had the pleasure of watching the original "EYE" film before seeing the remake and I enjoyed it immensely.

I'm glad to say that, like the American remakes before this one, ---The Ring (Ringu) and The Grudge (Ju-on: The Grudge)--, The Eye is without a doubt the best adaptation of its original movie since the aforementioned films. Naturally, some changes are made to accommodate cultural differences and the current timeline of the world.

The story follows Sydney Wells (Jessica Alba), classical violinist, who has lived with an accident-caused blindness since she was just five years old. Now, nearly 20 nears later, she finally getting a transplant surgery that will restore her sight. At first, she is confused and disoriented, unable to understand if what she sees is "real" or not.

During her first night with her new eyes, her bedmate at the hospital dies, and Sydney, not understanding, watches her blurry figure being led away by someone else. During her stay, she also befriends a young girl named Alicia Milstone (Chloe Moretz), who is there undergoing surgery for a brain tumor.

As time goes on, Sydney's vision begins to clear up and she struggles to understand the new world around her. Her therapist, Paul Faulkner (Alessandro Nivola), feels that her strange visions are her mind's way of interpreting what it was never able to before.

The '08 film `The Eye' starring the enchanting Jessica Alba is a better than expected remake of an Asian horror film of the same name. Yes, it does start out rat a rather slow pace and any horror fan will immediately notice the liberal borrowing from other horror/supernatural films that precede I such as; `Ghost' and `The Sixth Sense' it eventually discovers a personality of its own and rewards the patient viewer with an overall satisfying experience when all is said and done. Jessica Alba not only looks amazing but delivers a strong performance as the blind violinist and corona recipient that unexpectedly receives the ability to foresee death and disaster along her newfound sight.

Definitely not destined to be a classic but I enjoyed it; -3 ½ Stars-.

Personally I don't see why so many people bash this movie! Jessica Alba was at her best if you ask me.

....

Synopsis: Sydney (played by our lovely Jessica Alba is a young, blind, violinist. She has been blind since childhood, after an accident with a firecrack. She is given the chance to see for the first time since childhood through a miraculous corneal transplant. As Sydney adjusts to the dizzy world of color and shapes she hasn't seen in years she's hunated by horrifying images and visons of death, it'self, dragging the 'doomed' away from the living world. On the brink of insanity, Sydney must discover whose eyes she has inherited, and what secret visions they have held.

....

Perhaps the people who bash this movie don't realize, what Jessica put into this peice. That she learned to play the violin while filming it. That she actually learned to read braille.

This isn't the first movie Jessica has 'gotten into the role' with. Poor girl, in Good Luck Chuck, though it was an accident, in the scene with the penguins where she slips and falls into the water, and 'chips a tooth' She really does. Talking 'method acting' Must say I feel for her, that had to hurt.

....

All in all my opinion, this movie is a "must" have for any Jessica Alba fan. 'The Eye' with it's turns and twist, keep you guessing to the end.

To Jessica (As if she'd actually read this) You rock hun' Keep up the excellent work! ~Kit
