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...

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!! :)
But as Alba's character becomes more aware that there's something very sinister about her eyes and decides to try and unearth some answers, the film then becomes very plodding and a little tedious. Each new revelation is accompanied by an obligatory scare but there's no shocks or surprises here, it's all very production-line, with the film makers making sure they tick all the right boxes for a horror.
The trouble now is that it's getting very difficult to tell films like The Eye, The Ring, The Grudge, etc. apart from one another. This J-Horror derived formula is becoming very tired and a bit stale and it really is time for Hollywood to show a bit of courage and bring something new to the horror genre.
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'
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.
