Editorial Reviews

Fear takes flight at 30,000 feet in this non-stop action thriller! An overnight flight to Miami quickly becomes a battle for survival when Lisa (Rachel McAdams) realizes her seatmate (Cillian Murphy) plans to use her as part of a chilling assassination plot. As the miles tick by, she's in a race against time to warn the potential victims before it's too late. Get ready for the non-stop, adrenaline-pumping thrill ride that Peter Travers of Rolling Stone claims "will pin you to your seat."

Format: DVD
I've always been a fan of Wes Craven's films. He brings a wonderfully dark sense of humor, a deep sense of literacy (the man was, I believe, an English professor before he started making horror flicks) and a great storytelling ability to whatever he does. While his track record is imperfect (Cursed is pretty wretched), his duds are few and fade out in the great white glare of classics like Last House on the Left and A Nightmare on Elm Street. He has the rare ability to create total environments in which to house his stories; even when the material is fantastic, as with the Elm Street films, Shocker or Serpent and the Rainbow, it's grounded in a psychological reality everybody can recognize. It's the human dimension of his movies that lift them apart from a lot of the shlock horror fare that's out there, in which two-dimensional characters exist solely to be ripped apart in gooey ways.

Which brings us to Red Eye, which is not a horror movie per se, although it contains horrific and timely elements (the fear of terrorism, with its randomness, informs and heightens the claustrophobia). Red Eye is a taut Hitchcockian thriller in which a young professional woman played by Rachel McAdams (The Wedding Crashers) takes a red eye flight back to her home in Miami after attending her grandmother's funeral. It develops that her seatmate (the Irish actor Cillian Murphy, playing an American hit man with hypnotic, creepy brio)is finessing an assassination plot on a high-ranking government official who's staying at the hotel McAdams manages. The entire second act of the film takes place in the plane, a daring contrivance that Craven brings off with great form.

The Good Things
*Good video quality. Presented in Widescreen, enhanced for 16:9 TVs.
*Contains a few special features; a commentary, a couple of featurettes, and outtakes/bloopers.
*A few well-placed special effects and action scenes.
*Very thrilling and interesting story. It's short and simple, but brilliant and well-made.
*Characters are good. They're not terribly well-developed, but for the first half-hour, the protagonist and antagonist share some interesting and believable interactions. Their conflict later on is more intense that way, too. Acting is great; the bad guy was quite menacing and memorable.
*Pretty good dialogue.
*Just a little bit of violence towards the end; it's a bit gnarly, but nothing too intense (although this can be bad if you're looking for blood and guts).
*My copy came with a cool lenticular slipcover.

The Bad Things
*Slow to start.
*One or two of the characters do act a little dumb (makes you want to shout at them, "Don't do that!" or "Run!!" or something. Could also be considered suspenseful, though).

It's a very classy, simple idea that warrants an intruiging story; what would happen if you're on a plane and forced to help an assasin carry out his mission? The acting makes the story believable, immersive, and fascinating. The final confrontation is gripping. Altogether, despite being short and simple, it's a surprisingly thrilling film.

Of course, this film has Rachel McAdams, so it's already pretty good in my book. McAdams doesn't let me down as she plays a woman who gets forced into a situation where human lives are at stake. Cillian Murphy plays a suave terrorist who intends to use McAdams's character's position in a hotel to carry out a plot to assinate the United States Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security (theere's a mouthful.) McAdams's character is motivated to cooperate by the fact that her father, who remains unaware of the plot, will become very aware of what's going on, right before he's killed. That's a nice twist...usually the father is "motivated" by his daughter's possible fate. Murphy's character is truely terrifying, a testiment to the man's acting ability, and we are reminded of how terrifying when he so creepily reminds McAdams (and us) of how brutally honest he has been from the beginning. Ultimately, this is a pair to watch (you'll briefly think it's a relationship in the making) right up to the very, tail-spinning end.

Lisa (Rachel McAdams, "Wedding Crashers", "The Notebook"), the manager of the Lux Atlantic hotel in Miami, is very late for her plane in Dallas. Shaking the rain off, she stands in line at the airport terminal and meets Jackson (Cillian Murphy, "Batman Begins", "28 Days Later"). Jackson calms a tense situation with another passenger and then introduces himself, telling Lisa that he will be in the bar, waiting for the plane, if she cares to join him. She politely begs off but does end up having a drink with him. As Lisa boards the plane, she finds that she is sitting next to Jackson. The plane takes off and Lisa becomes nervous, because she hates to fly prompting Jackson to try to calm her, by getting her to talk about her dad, Joe (Brian Cox). After the plane has lifted through the turbulence, he reveals that he knows a lot more about Lisa than he should and he simply needs Lisa to make a phone call. If she does, her dad will not be harmed by the man sitting outside of his house.

"Red Eye" directed by Wes Craven ("Cursed", the "Scream" films, "Nightmare Before Elm Street") is a very good example of the thriller genre.

I think the first trailer released for this film is a brilliant piece of marketing. The trailer paints the film as a nice, romantic drama featuring a chance meeting between Lisa and Jackson. They meet in the airport, they have a snack together, then, lo and behold, they find they are sitting next to each other. The flight will be a pleasant affair. Just as the trailer has convinced you of this, a title card appears announcing "A Film by Wes Craven", in red lettering, and the music becomes ominous.
