Wes Craven directs this minimalist thriller like Hitchcock, and gets pretty close to the real deal.

An interesting movie and I think it does worth a watch

Works because of Cillian Murphy and his uber-creepy vibe. I agree it starts to go downhill once they leave the plane, but that tension on the flight - it more than makes up for the weaker ending.

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.”
The story follows Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams), a workaholic career woman who works at Lux America, an upscale hotel in Miami, Florida. After attending the funeral of her grandmother, she decides to take the red eye flight back to Miami but her plane gets delayed. While waiting in line, she meets an attractive Jackson Rippner , (how fffrreeaakkyy is that?) with the most gorgeous blue eyes (Cillian Murphy in another creepy role) and the two become friends (sort of) and things seem to be progressing nicely when …

An airplane can be a very unpleasant place to be, especially if a terrorist hell bent on assassinating a government official is sitting next to you. This form of sheer terror is what hotel manager Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) has to deal with when she is flying to Miami after attending her grandmother's funeral in Texas. Seated next to her is Jackson Rippner (Cillian Murphy) a terrorist for hire who wants Lisa to move one of her hotel's VIPs (the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security) to another room so that he can be assassinated. If Lisa does not comply with Rippner's demands, he will dispatch a hitman to kill her father (Brian Cox). Further complicating the matter is that the deputy secretary's family will also be staying at the hotel and they will all be killed if the attack …

This movie was brilliant, though not Wes Craven's best. What I love so much about Wes Craven's style and abilities is that he takes the norms and turns them into something terrifying or new or interesting. In "Scream" he took scary movies and made it the object of its own terror. In "Red Eye" he took one of the most terrifying situations and turns it into an even more terrifying situation. A political assassin takes a young girl and forces her to move the room of a politician in order to assassinate him from the ocean that the hotel the girl runs faces. However, if she doesn't, her father will be killed in the politician's place. Rachel MacAdams and Cillian Murphy are a great duo [isn't he just creepy?] and this movie scored high on my list of radtastic movies.
