Red Eye

Red Eye ★★½

A taut, economically paced albeit silly & forgettable thriller that seems like it was made for TV but benefits from Craven’s sharp direction & feels like a star vehicle for its leads more than anything. Brian Cox does a great job sitting on his ass, doing nothing; Rachel McAdams proves she’s not just a mean girl but actually a very nice & sociable Canadian (who’s still tough when she needs to be); & Cillian Murphy utilizes his creepy eyes & psychopathic charm to the best of his abilities.
