A true suspenseful thriller! LOVE Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy makes a very creepy villain. Great for a movie night with friends! :)

When her flight home is delayed Lisa Reisert, a lovely but somewhat mousy desk supervisor at a swank Miami hotel, decides have a drink with a fellow passenger, the suave yet creepy Jackson (last name Rippner. Jack Rippner. Welcome to Foreshadowing 101). When their plane finally does take off Lisa is at first delighted to have Jackson sit next to her until she discovers his true nature; he’s a sociopath who arranges assassinations and right now he has his sights set on a political bigwig staying at Lisa’s hotel. In order to eliminate the government bureaucrat in question however, Jackson needs Lisa’s help; help she refuses to give until he makes her an offer she can’t possibly refuse... Wes Craven’s foray into straight-up thriller is a mixed bag at best. The impressive cinematography takes us from the close confines of an airplane lavatory to the sweeping vistas of a penthouse suite, the resulting interplay of claustrophobic spaces and agoraphobic vulnerability takes you off guard at times and ratchets up the tension nicely. Unfortunately, even though they are talented performers on their own, Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy produce very little screen chemistry here as they plod through a generic script accompanied by a cast of stock characters from every Airport movie ever made. Of course the tables will be turned more than once, the usual twists will occur and we’ll be expected to accept some enormous gaps in logic. But even though Red Eye’s gaps start out small enough they quickly become bottomless chasms that threaten to swallow you up, popcorn and all. Perhaps Craven should have stuck to what he does best; simply seat Freddy Krueger in first class, have everyone fall asleep, and let the slashing begin...

A taut, compact thriller that is really driven by two characters. Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy both give fine performances and keep you involved even as the plot gets a little silly. Directed by horror vet Wes Craven ("Scream," "Nightmare on Elm Street").

A what would YOU do? film, and the answers aren't easy. For once, the women get an equal share of the action. But isn't this an awful lot of trouble to kill one guy? I just noticed that Murphy's character is called Jackson Ripner. Why not Ackjay the Ipperray?

This is an amazing psychological thriller!! Interesting how Cillian Murphy began acting as charming young man, to being a total creep!! At least Rachel got to outrun him in the end.

Jackson Rippner: Lisa, whatever female-driven, emotion-based dilemma you may be dealing with right now, you have my sympathy. But for the sake of time and sanity, let's break this down into a little male-driven fact-based logic. One simple phone call saves your dad's life.

Lisa Reisert: Is it Jack for short?

Jackson Rippner: No. I haven't gone by Jack since I was ten years old.

Jackson Rippner: Last name's Rippner.

Lisa Reisert: Jack Rippner... Jack theee... oooohhhh.

Jackson Rippner: There you go.

Lisa Reisert: That wasn't very nice of your parents.

Jackson Rippner: That's what I told them. Before I killed them.
