Reviews

Hollywood remake of the Hong Kong chiller, 'Jian Gui' (2002). Accomplished concert violinist Sydney Wells (Jessica Alba) has been blind since childhood. After undergoing a double corneal transplant, her sight is finally restored. Her post-surgery recovery is helped along by the support of her sister Helen (Parker Posey) and neural ophthalmologist Paul Faulkner (Allessandro Nivolo). As Sydney adjusts to a dazzling world of shapes and colours she begins to see inexplicable images of death and horror. At first, these visions are passed off as an after-effect of the surgery, but Sydney is convinced she's seeing something terrifyingly real. As her friends and family become fearful for her sanity, Sydney realises that the answer to her nightmare must lie with her anonymous eye donor...

Format: DVD
To date, the scariest film I've seen is THE RING - it's chilling and compelling and there's something about the horror of it that stays with you for days after you've seen it. I don't tend to like watching things that are tooo scary, especially supernatural horror and when I saw the cinema trailer for THE EYE I was quite torn as it looked like a brilliant film but something that would be a nightmare for me to watch!! I'm a big Jessica Alba fan though and really wanted to see her in this role so I plucked up the courage and got it on DVD!

This film is very watchable - it's got everything: thrills, suspense, suprise, a good storyline and it IS scary. However, I can also see why hardcore horror fans would find this a bit tame. Don't let the negative reviews put you off though - I admit the film doesn't have the kind of sophistication that something like THE RING has and I did finish watching the film feeling like I wanted something a little more especially in the first half of the film which could do with having a few more spine-tingling chills & thrills. Despite this though, it is a thoroughly enjoyable film - the blind girl getting someone elses eyes (and memories) is a cool concept and the film is nicely wrapped up at the end too - a welcomed change for these Japansese horrors!

Speaking of Japanese horrors, after seeing this, I went back to watch the original and I have to say I much rather preferred the remake - it definitely made more of an impression on me as it has much better execution and Jessica Alba plays her character convincingly well. It's pretty loyal to the original but the journey is more chillingly entertaining.

Overall, this is very worthy of it's 4 stars - hardcore horror fans may be a little disappointed but I think you will love this if (like me) you tend to enjoy your thriller/horror films and like to be scared but not so scared that you can't be left in the dark by yourself!! :)

The disc opens with three trailers then goes to the main selection screen. This offers play, set up [English 5.2 or full audio description narrative, and subtitles on or off], scenes selection and special features [Deleted scenes, 4 documentary type choices, theatrical trailer]. The film starts with a woman being terrorised and accused of being a witch by some young boys. It’s all in Mexican with English subtitles and for a few moments you think you’ve got a dud disc. But it soon cuts to a scenes of a blind Sydney Wells [Jessica Alba] walking down a busy street. In simple terms it’s the day before her operation to implant new cornea in order to restore her sight. As you can imagine, things don’t work out so well as the new eyes seem to bring problems and much is seen through blurry vision. She sees things she shouldn’t but her therapist thinks it’s her inability to understand her new sight. It’s halfway through the movie before she figures the basics.
If you view this film then make sure you don’t eat any soup –it’ll go everywhere. The first half has a decent number of jumpy moments but although the second half is fast paced and action packed, it lacks the scares of the first half and runs more like a conventional detective yarn -almost pulling this down to a 4 star. The end scene packs an adventurous punch,
A definite ***** rating and a solid buy for any horror fan who likes those creepy moments that make you jump but unlike films like The Ring, or Ju On [the grudge] it is not unrelenting in it's scares.

Violinist Sydney Wells has been blind since she was five years old due to an accident. She agrees to a cornea transplant to recover her vision.

While recovering from the operation, she realises that she's having strange visions.

With the support of Dr. Paul Faulkner, Sidney finds who the donor of her eyes and begins a journey to find out the truth behind her visions.....

Another J-Horror remake, made in a time when everyone was remaking them, thanks to the success of The Ring, and The Grudge, and don't forget, we had the influx of Gornography, and the slew of eighties horror remakes at this time, so to be fair, horror really suffered from 2006 to 2009.

But the difference with this movie is that its the remake of a remake to an American movie, Blink, which is a really good standalone film.

There is nothing new here, we get all the jump scares, people seeing things in a reflection, and dark shadowy figures taking people away.

Alba is as good as she always is, but when it comes to it all, its not scary, and offers nothing new.

If you are used to these silly remakes and find movies like Shutter, Apartment 1303, The Grudge, The Ring, One Missed Call et al, affable, its a watchable mess.

And Alba is easy on 'The Eye'

Good plot, engaging characters but not at all what I thought it would be like. After seeing the trailers I was expecting a good ghostly horror but it was more of a supernatural mystery. Jessica Alba is great as the main character and it is worth watching but don't expect any scares!

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 11 Jan. 2015
Format: DVD
In 2002, the Pang Brothers released one of the best Asian ghost stories in recent memory, "The Eye." It was spooky, eerie and tragic...

... so of course, Hollywood decided that it needed a remake. With Jessica Alba. And like so many remakes, it belly-flops into forgettable mediocrity -- partly due to Alba's awkward two-expression acting, and partly because co-directors David Moreau and Xavier Palud... simply do not have the indefinable skill that makes a horror director good.

After many years of blindness, Sydney (Alba) is given a corneal transplant that finally restores her sight. Everything is going beautifully after the transplant, although Sydney is a little bewildered. Then she starts seeing things that she shouldn't -- ghosts who repeat what they did before they died, people who have just expired, and dark shadows that escort them away. Oh, and fire. She keeps seeing fire.

Unsurprisingly, her friends and doctors think that she's having some sort of weird reaction to all the new input coming into her brain, but Sydney knows that her new corneas have somehow given her supernatural powers. So she begins investigating the woman whose corneas she currently has, hoping to bring peace to her soul.

I'd like to mention that I am NOT one of those hipsterish people who pretend that all American remakes are automatically bad or inferior to the original, nor do I labor under the provincial delusion that Hollywood is the only movie industry that remakes stuff from other countries. In fact, the American "The Eye" isn't even the first remake of this story -- there was a 2005 remake over in India.

So I can say without prejudice that this movie is terrible.
