    Release Date:

    From director Wes Craven comes Red Eye, a suspense thriller at 30,000 feet. Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) hates to fly, but the terror that awaits her on the night flight to Miami has nothing to do with a fear of flying. Moments after takeoff, Lisa`s seatmate, Jackson (Cillian Murphy), menacingly reveals the real reason he`s on board. He is an operative in a plot to kill a rich and powerful businessman... And Lisa is the key to its success. If she reufuses to cooperate, her father (Brian Cox) will be killed by an assassin awaiting a call from Jackson. Trapped within the confines of a jet at 30,000 feet, Lisa has nowhere to run and no way to summon help without endangering her father, her fellow passengers and her own life. As the miles tick by, Lisa knows she is runnning out of time as she desperately looks for a way to thwart her ruthless captor and stop a terrible murder.

    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    A decent thriller with some fine acting by the leads.
    Flights can sometimes be a nightmare. Still, I hope none of the flights I board are THAT bad... .
    The video transfer is good. The colors are nicely saturated and the picture shows no grain at all. Murphy`s eyes look ridiculously blue, as they are in real life.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The occasional usage of the surrounds is decent and provides a nice claustrophobic atmosphere.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the crew, a 20-minute behind the scenes featurette and some bloopers.
    Bottom line - a decent thriller which is not to be watched prior to boarding a flight.
