Red Eye

Terror rides the night skies in this thriller from horror auteur Wes Craven. Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) is a young woman with more than her share of anxieties about flying. However, when circumstances demand she go to Miami, she gathers her nerves and books a seat on a late-night flight. Sitting next to her is a handsome and charming man named Jackson (Cillian Murphy), whom she already met in the airport, but once their jet is safely in the air, Lisa discovers he's not the pleasant traveling companion she imagined. Jackson is part of a terrorist cell plotting to kill the head of Homeland Security, and he's decided to draft Lisa into helping him. While Lisa has no interest in abetting Jackson's plan, he soon reveals he's holding a trump card -- his compatriots are holding Lisa's father hostage, and will kill him if she doesn't cooperate. Red Eye was the first feature film credit for screenwriter Carl Ellsworth, who previously scripted episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Xena: Warrior Princess.

This is the movie "Flightplan" should have been, suspensful, eerie, nerve racking. Though "Flightplan" marked a significant comeback for Jody foster, it didn't do very much in the way of nail biting suspense, and the ending lacked impact. "Red Eye" is a true creeper, and lived up to it's eerieness, with nerve shattering results, and it lived up to it's ending. In the tradtion of Alfred Hitchcock, Wes Craven takes us back to a time where there was no blood and guts to scare the life out of someone, but sheer terror, and the thought that someone is watching you was enough to put the audience on the edge of the seats. True suspense/horror at it's best.

I remembered I was on vacation visiting my favorite cousins and we all were trying to decide what to see in the theaters. We saw a trailer for Red Eye and I couldn't remember if I thought it looked good or not but after seeing it again it looked really good. We arrived at the theatre just in time when the movie started. The whole time my cousins and I kept on smiling whenever Cillian Murphy came on the screen. Don't get me started on his eyes. Rachel McAdams looks more mature and prettier with brown hair. My friends and I enjoyed the movie very much and couldn't stop talking about it especially Cillian Murphy and his gorgeous hypnotic blue eyes LOL. I even got the dvd and still never get tired of watching it. This is about Lisa who while on the red eye flight to miami meets Jackson Rippner and what seems to be like a romance turns into a thriller that involves having a room changed at the hotel she works at or her father will be killed. This is a really good movie and it takes place mostly on a plane. Wes Craven shows that he can do a thriller than his usual scary movies well with the exception of Scream of course. The movie has some jump out moments and is a little fast paced. Everyone did a good job especially the little girl and how she trips Jackson to give Lisa time to get away from him, oh man that was very smart and brave of her to do. The ending was good and don't worry Jackson lives. Too many good scenes to choose from but if I had to pick two they would be the the airport chase and they're at Lisa's house. I had no idea Cillian was irish, he did the american accent The only problem I have is that the film was short. The gag reel is funny and liked the behind the scenes. Thank you for choosing Red Eye, we hope you'll fly with us again.

This movie was very impressive. It's straight, simple, and to the point. Cilian Murphy is the perfect "madman" of the year. It will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. I loved this movie. See it.

I have watched this movie over and over. You never get enough of Cillian Murphy who is the most amazing actor around today. In every one of his movies he gives an astonishing performance and this is no exception. Check out all of his other movies, you will not be disappointed. I've seen them all and in every one of them you cannot take your eyes off him. The most gifted actor of our time.

This movie is excellent. It is not too long or too short. It's just long enough so that you're always excited to see what happens next. Rachel McAdams (like always) does an awesome job as the main character. Cillian Murphy also does an exceptionally well performance along side Rachel. This movie is excellent and worth the buy.

Red Eye was a great action-packed movie! I totally give it five stars all the way! But the only thing is,I thought that the man was some sort of evil monster.I thought that his eyes were going to turn red.Never did I know of the actual plane.But it all made sense.Still a great film.Hey,if Wes Craven made it you know it's a good one!

I'm not really a fan of Craven because he seems to have more misses than hits with screenplays, but this movie is his best since Scream. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, the suspense was perfect and realistic.

This movie was worth the time. Cillian Murphy plays a good role as the mad-man. Rachel McAdams does a good job as well. It's not too long, so by the time you would get bored, it's already done.

I never really liked Wes Craven until this movie! Cillian Murphy is a genius with these psychotic killer roles (see Batman Begins) and has the most gorgeous eyes ever! Rachel McAdams is also excellent on the screen. AWESOME MOVIE, WORTH THE BUY!!!!

RED EYE is a well-constructed, tight, taut thriller. I really appreciated this film, because it didn’t dilly-dally around, but got into the action. The action being the contest of wills between the two leads Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy. Both of the actors were excellent in the roles. There are many things you think are going to happen but don’t. That was good, because they would have been cliché. Good film and not too long. Probably my favorite Wes Craven film. – Leslie Strang Akers

Rachel McAdams is a very strong actress. I like her in anything she's in. And Cillian Murphy plays such a good creeper it makes it feel all the more real. If you like dangerous airplane scenarios, creepers, strong female leads, and a bit of comedy and politics thrown in, you'll love this movie!

Dont waste your money on this movie!!!!! Its a thriller to some extent but not realistic enough. Example: How does one get stab in the leg with a shoe heel, remove it, and still not bleed?????

This is one of those movies that you can't help but watch. Take a pawn, the gamer, and the plan and what you got, an entertaining movie and some scream out moments with excellent suspense.

This movie was really extroadinary. I think the title fit the movie really well because most of the movie took place on a red eye flight. The title did not give too much away about the movie but enough to let you know what the movie was going to be about. This movie was an edge of your seat thriller and it kept me wondering what was going to happen next. This movie was suspensful and unpredictable. I was able to watch this movie more than once without getting bored. I would definitely reccommend this movie. It is one of my favorite movies and I would watch it again.

This movie begins well and charms its audience into thinking that maybe, just maybe, they will get the suspense thriller they were promised. Unfortunately, the movie rides itself off the rails about 3/4 of the way through the story (much like the promising but very disappointing High Tension). This film is yet another movie that just does not know how to end itself, relying on cheap plot twists and a tacky ending.
