After a blind woman receives a cornea transplant she begins to have strange visions that seem to be related to the donor's eyes. With the help of a doctor, she tracks down the origin of her sight in hopes of unraveling the mystery. This movie has your least favorite cliches on the planet like, Jump scares and horrible CGI.

Another anemic Hollywood remake of a superior product. The original Pang Bros., while not as slick, was much better. Even if they recycle a lot of the material, this never seems as interesting or tense.

As much as I loved the original "The Eye", I had no hopes for the American rehash. In fact, I waited months before even watching it. But, pleasantly surprised, it was not bad. Although I would assign blame to the director, he did have a tough act to follow from the Pang Brothers. There was really no way for the climax to have the emotional impact of the original. For the first time, Jessica Alba did not bother me. I've yet to be impressed by one of her performances, but then I'm using looking at the beauty of her male co-stars. For someone who doesn't like to "read" their movies, I'd recommend the remake. However, they're not likely to understand the greatness of the original.

Jessica Alba is eye candy only.. She can't act!!!!

I had a hard time watching this movie. Everything that worked in this was directly lifted from the original, everything else... didn't. The director tries to built tension in places where none exists. The screen writer tries to "improve" on the mystery of the original but the results don't work, giving itself away from he very first "vision". The acting was below par for most of the cast, with characters coming off as two dimensional for the sake of moving the plot along- and Jessica Alba needs to realize she gets film jobs for her looks not her talent. Anyway, if you're thinking of watching this, don't. It's not scary. It's not suspenseful. It's not even original. It's a waste of your time and money. Rent the original or watch another film instead.

Well... at least Alba has decent eye contacts now.

Horror would be an odd way to describe the film; there are barely any frights to speak of. Instead we are subjected to 100 minutes of Jessica Alba doing her best to act terrified and concerned.

The genuine scares are few and far between. In fact, the scariest thing about THE EYE is the directors’ apparent belief that jump-scares are the only way to frighten an audience these days. Very little effort is put into creating a suspenseful mood. Instead, the film relies mostly on clichés to let an audience know what they should find frightening (people walking too slowly, children repeating lines over and over, flickering lights, etc.) Alba is just barely adequate in her role; she occasionally musters an expression that passes for terror, but she delivers most of her lines in a bright, ...
