The Eye is the story of a talented violinist who has just had her sight restored by surgery after a being blind for most of her life. However, she gets something else besides her vision. She now sees dead people and horrific events. To read my full review go to

The entire movie is an object lesson in diminishing returns: of nagging shock cuts and blaring sound cues used as indiscriminately as joy buzzers; of "look out behind you!" scares that wouldn't make a Cub Scout flinch; of a blurry visual scheme that was far more terrifying in "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," where it sought empathy rather than empty sensation.

This slick effort is effectively creepsome until it bogs down somewhat in plot explication. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
Sacrifices the quietly creepy qualities of the original in favor of ramped-up horror film techniques that by now seem distressingly familiar. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Unfortunately, the final act (the Mexico sequences) illustrate where to take a ghost story if you want to exchange old-fashioned horror for a grilled cheese sandwich. Full Review

Louder and more literal than its inspiration, The Eye benefits from a spiky performance by Alessandro Nivola as Sydney's rehabilitation counselor. "Your eyes are not the problem," he tells her at one point. He is so, so right. Full Review
