For an hour, this is one of the tightest, edge of your seat thrillers ever made. Wes Craven takes his time setting up the characters of Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy, their expectant meeting, and the set up on the plane.
In fact, it fairly plods along, but in such an interesting way you won't mind. You're so interested in these characters, that the factthat the film doesn't really start until 30 minutes in is irrelevant - because when it gets good, it gets very good.
Putting it simply, so not to spoil any new viewers, Murphy's character hold McAdams character hostage on the plane without anybody knowing. As she tries to alert people to her fate, her plans get ingeniously better, and its keep you guessing how she'll be able to escape.
Murphy particularly is brilliant, all easy friendliness covering up a bonkers mad criminal. McAdams too is spot on as lady in peril. Half the fun is watching the events unfold on the plane, and how Murphy's character will stop them.
However, come the ending, Craven resorts to his tried and tested slasher material. Although decent, it lacks the sinister edge of the previous hour, and becomes far moretraditional. The airport chase is absurd, and loses the film it's fifth star. How can you run unchecked through an airport without going through passport control or without the guards clocking on?
Still, the finale in the house is jump worthy material, and makes up for the slightly soggy airport section. Different, fresh and exciting, this was a real surprise treat, and I would highly recommend it for some Friday night easy entertainment.

I wasn't expecting much from this film, some of Wes Craven's recent films have been a little below par and I was almost sure this was going to be the same. How glad I am to say then that it was actually a very serviceable thriller. Cillian Murphy plays Jackson Rippner, a nasty but intelligent piece of work who needs to get a job done. Rachel McAdams plays Lisa Reisert, she is the person who can help Jackson do his job. Most of the action takes place on a late night flight but don't let that put you off. It is because of this that the film is a step above others, it uses your mind to get the film across and not fancy stunts or gory violence. Murphy is excellent as the bad guy, you sense real danger from him hidden under a velvet suave exterior.

All in all this was a nice surprise and at only about 80 mins long it flys by. Well worth a watch.

The fact that this movie is classified as suitable for 12 years olds meant that the whole family could sit and watch it, which we did, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

However, don't let this fool you into thinking that this film is not for adults. It's a gripping movie right up to the end. I guess the rating is due to the fact that the movie does not contain sex, nudity or bad language - a blessing in my view and proof that it is possible to make an action/thriller/suspense movie without the need to introduce these elements (although the movie does contain some violence).

Other reviewers here have described the plot so it seems pointless to repeat these details but I highly recommend this movie. A thriller in which the suspense gradually increases to a dramatic climax with the two main characters, a seemingly friendly but ultimately evil villain and an unfortunate victim trapped and apparently at his mercy, both excellently portrayed by Cillian Murphy and Rachel McAdams.

The thing that I like about Red Eye is that most of the film is set in one location, the plane. Most films that are set in one location become boring after half an hour but Red Eye is different.

Lisa Reisert (Rachael McAdams), is flying home to Miami after going to her grandmother's funeral in Texas. After discovering her flight is delayed, she is asked by Jackson Ripner (Cillian Murphey), a fellow passenger is she would like a drink in the airport bar, at first, Lisa refuses but after thinking it through, she says yes.

After Lisa and Jackson finish their drinks and say their goodbyes, Lisa boards the plane and is delighted to discover that she will be sitting next to Jackson. After take-off, Jackson reveals that he is the head of a assassin organisation and he needs Lisa to call her her hotel in Miami, and put a high profile politition is a different room to make is easier for Jackson's assassins to kill him, and if Lisa refuses, then Jackson will tell a assassin who is waiting outside Lisa's dads house to kill him.

Red Eye is a fantastic film to enjoy on a Friday night with your family and friends.

Whoever wrote the script for this movie would have made a good writer for the theatre because most of the action in this film is in the dialogue between the two main characters Lisa Reisert (Rachel Mcadams) and Jack Rippner (Cillian Murphy).This is a thriller rather than a horror film
and Wes Craven the director showed considerable dexterity in moving from
one genre to another.Red Eye is interesting to watch throughout its duration and the last 20 minutes or so move at a cracking pace.The extras section of the dvd has long interviews with Wes Craven,several of the actors and production crew,and is worth seeing in itself.In particular watch the movie again with a full commentary from Craven and you'll get a deep insight into just how sophisticated the script was,how many times some scenes were shot and how much work went into choosing which scenes should be put together - the production team were doing 20 hour days! The sound quality of the dvd is good and so is the picture quality.
