Red Eye (2005)


Rachel McAdams
Cillian Murphy
Brian Cox

Directed by Wes Craven

I still enjoyed re-watching Red Eye, although I now noticed that the beginning drags a little, but it was because I was already knew what was going to happen. But the moment the plane lands and the race starts to save the people and to save her father the movie was all exciting to see.

For me the acting giving to us by Rachel McAdams (Lisa) and Cillian Murphy (Jack) is top notch, the made the best of the confine space they had and made the movie worth every minute. Red Eye is a movie you have to see in case you missed it back in 2005 and what makes it more exciting and inviting to watch is that it was directed by the late Wes Craven.

The movie plot starts with the introduction of Lisa and her father. We noticed a nice bonding between the pair, and it was there in this movie as it it part of the plot. Lisa we find out is the manager of a hotel and she seems to be good at it.
While waiting to get on a flight she meets a nice man named Jack. Jack does and says all the right things and Lisa likes him, to her shock on the plane they are seated next to one another.

The moment the flight takes off things start getting weird. Soon she is in the middle of something which she would rather not be in. There is a plot to murder someone and Lisa is one of the key factors needed to carryout that plot. The worse part of it is that she seems to have no choice on the matter, because the life of her father is also on the line if she fails to cooperate.

Wes Craven for me had control of the plot. He packed enough suspense in the beginning and then the moment the plane lands he changes the pace of the movie and maintained that pace until the end.

The movie was both a critical and commercial success although this movie is different from what we have come to know Craven for. Craven is known for making slasher movies, he created iconic characters in the 80s from the movie A Nightmare on Elm Street (in 1984 which had Freddy Krueger and Nancy Thompson). Also in the 90s Craven gave us Scream (in 1996 which had Ghostface and Sidney Prescott).

Red Eye is a good movie to see, one you will enjoy and will captivate you from start to end.
