Becky and I went to see The Eye at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, Colorado on Friday night with our friends Rod & Kimberly Tactaquin. The Yahoo website at The Eye Straw Dogs buy describes the movie as follows:
“Sydney Wells is an accomplished concert violinist who has been blind since a childhood tragedy. Sydney undergoes a double corneal transplant, and her sight is restored. But Sydney’s happiness is short-lived as unexplainable shadowy and frightening images start to haunt her. Are they a passing aftermath of her surgery, Sydney’s mind adjusting to sight, a product of her imagination, or something horrifyingly real? As Sydney’s family and friends begin to doubt her sanity, Sydney is soon convinced that her anonymous eye donor has somehow opened the door to a terrifying world only she can now see.”
The Eye is a spooky movie that is scary for about a half hour and then it gets pretty lame. Jessica Alba does a great job in the film, but the script isn’t that good. It’s much like The Sixth Sense or Gothika that has been done before with someone who can see ghosts, but it moves really slow and it’s much too happy of an ending for a scary movie.
The Scary Movie spoofs are going to have fun with this one. There is the Jessica Alba shower scene that goes nowhere, followed by the Jessica underwear scene. We all got a kick out of that since the entire budget of this movie probably went to getting Jessica to play the part, since there wasn’t to this film.
The Eye isn’t a really bad film, but it’s just not worth the price of admission on the big screen. Definitely wait for the rental to see this one.
