Sally Field stars in this well-crafted revenge thriller. Eye for an Eye follows Karen McCann (Field) after her teenage daughter is raped and murdered. At first, she sinks into depression and paranoia; but, when the killer (Kiefer Sutherland) is caught, then released on a technicality, she becomes obsessed and begins to track him in his neighborhood. Her single-mindedness begins to distance her from her husband (Ed Harris). Finally, when the killer threatens her younger daughter, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Eye for an Eye is not exactly a balanced examination of justice and revenge--Sutherland's killer is a relentless monster--but it does approach the conflict from many points of view, articulated by a superb supporting cast, including Joe Mantegna, Beverly D'Angelo, Charlayne Woodard, Philip Baker Hall, Keith David, and Donal Logue. It's directed with professional skill by John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man). --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Two-time Academy-Award-® winner Sally Field, Kiefer Sutherland and Ed Harris star in this riveting thriller about the search for justice in an unjust world. Karen McCann's (Sally Field) orderly life is shattered when a stranger breaks into her home and murders her 17-year-old daughter. But shock and grief turn into rage and disbelief when the killer (Sutherland) is released on a legal technicality. When he commits another murder - and is set free once again - Karen is determined to make him pay for his crimes. Alienating her husband (Harris) and her friends, Karen quietly and methodically devises a deadly plan for retribution. Directed by Oscar-®winner John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man) and costarring Joe Mantegna and Beverly D'Angelo.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT ACTING! March 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
In this movie,Sally Field does an EXCELLENT job portraying an anguished mom who is seeking justice for the brutal rape and murder of her teenaged daughter. And Keifer Sutherland is absolutely HATEABLE in HIS role as the depraved, scumbag murderer, (which I guess proves that he did an EXCELLENT job, as well)! This film pokes fun of the American justice system: It's obvious that Sutherland's character committed the vicious rape and murder, (along with a SUBSEQUENT rape and murder!), but is allowed to go free due to some legal mumbo-jumbo technicality! You really feel Feild's character's rage at the injustice of it all, as she decides to get her OWN revenge on the brutal killer, (who actually "taunts" her in court)! Warning: The rape scenes in this movie are VERY harsh and realistic, but all in all, an EXCELLENT, suspense-filled movie, with EXCELLENT acting. In my opinion, this is one movie that is DEFINITELY worth seeing, AND owning!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Top-Notch Thriller December 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The casting in this film in spectacular. The pacing is excellent. The direction is masterful. What more could you ask for in a dramatic thriller?
Sally Field is ideal for the role of a mother who's seventeen-year-old daughter is brutally raped and murdered. Ed Harris plays her supportive husband in an average role for him, but he still gets the point across. And Keifer Sutherland - well, nobody can play a vicious scumbag more brilliantly than Sutherland.
However, I have a word to the wise: This film is not for the queasy. The rape scenes are harsh and brutal and, sometimes, you have to wonder why Sutherland would take such an awful role. However, as an audience member watching the film, I could not pick out a better actor I would rather hate than Keifer Sutherland. And the hatred is strong for him in this film. Although 'Eye For An Eye' is not mysterious in any way and has hardly any made-you-jump thrills, it's a thriller just the same. Most of this is brought about masterfully by the remarkable acting, especially that of Field and Sutherland.
I can't say that I'm a big fan of Sally Field. However, she's perfect in this movie. An agonized mother, out to seek revenge. It's a typical story which is brought over-the-top by a great director and a masterful Academy Award Winning actress. The emotional tension brought to the screen kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time through. Another special trait about 'Eye For An Eye' is that it never gets old. The tension is always there. No matter how many times you've watched it.
Overall, this thriller is the very definition of what a top-notch thriller is about. The acting really brought it to life, and that's what's so enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first ten minutes are ugly September 30, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
...and I am not kidding. Very hard to watch a pretty girl get raped and beating to death. Just not my thing. After five years I still can't watch the the opening of this film. Maybe I'm just squemish or maybe this film really honestly shows the ugly side of humanity. Very hard pounding for an opening. Sally Field shows her full acting chops in this film. Especially when she calls her daugther and hears her being attacked and she's running up and down screaming for help. I still get goosebumps thinking about it. The opening of this film and the ending are worth it to buy it. Just don't and this is a WARNING, don't let kids watch this film. It's that powerful and that disturbing to watch. I was just dumbfounded when I realized that this film was not recieved with praise when it opened or that it didn't do well at the box-office either. Now why is that. Okay granted the opening of this film is hard to watch. But the story is great and actors are A-list, not to mention there acting. Maybe it was actually showing that a woman with a gun went out of her way to avenge the rape and muder of her daughter. After the justice system failed her. Hell, I would do it too. I would have done the same thing she did. Even if the system put him in jail.

5.0 out of 5 stars PURE EVIL AT IT'S FINEST!!!!! May 9, 2002
Format:DVD
Wow, Kiefer Sutherland delivers one of the most powerful performances ever to come to the big screen. I always loved Kiefer's films, and always thought he played a great villan. Freeway, A Time To Kill, and even in A Few Good Men he played a nasty s.o.b., but never had I seen him this downright horrible. He is such a brilliant actor and can play a wide range of characters(as we have seen in the tv show 24). Kiefer plays Robert Doob in the film Eye For An Eye, a white trash serial rapist who prays on women of all ages. Doob is a truely evil person and has no conscience what so ever, which makes him all the more scary. The movie opens with us being introduced to the McCann family. Karen(Sally Field) and Mack(Ed Harris) live in a big house with their two daughters Julie(Olivia Burnette) and Ashley. They are getting the house ready for Ashley's birthday party. Julie is left alone in the house and is putting up decorations, when Karen calls. Karen tells her that she is going to be late because she is stuck in traffic. Then the doorbell rings, and Julie tells her mom to hold on and opens the door. The scene that follows is quite upsetting, and is where we are introduced to Robert Doob. Doob brutally attacks Julie while Karen is still on the phone and can hear everything. The physical violence isn't that bad since the scene jumps around a lot, but the emotional tension is unbearable. I think that the helpless feeling Karen experiences as she runs up to every car around her to ask for help, and for someone to call the police, is what hits us the hardest. The vision of the balloons floating away from inside Karens car, out the open door, then to the sky, while Doob is raping and killing the helpless girl is, in my opinion, a subliminal reference to the end of innocence and the loss of life.
