    Frank Scheck 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. show more

    Stephen Cole The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    A quirkily efficient genre exercise that knows exactly where and when to administer its cattle-prod shivers. show more

    The most vivid aspect of The Eye is its poster image, that of a huge female eye with a human hand gripping the lower lid from the inside. The least vivid aspect is the way Jessica Alba delivers a simple line of expository dialogue. show more

    Glenn Kenny Premiere

    A tediously noisesome English-language remake of an Asian horror picture that wasn't any great shakes to begin with. show more

    Most unforgivably, this Eye culminates not with the mounting dread and spectacular tragedy of the original film's decidedly downbeat vision, but with the trademark LASIK laziness of Hollywood's stylistically blank remake factory. show more

    It's as if, on the umpteenth Asian-horror Xerox, the ink has run dry. show more

    Dennis Harvey Variety

    This slick effort is effectively creepsome until it bogs down somewhat in plot explication. show more
