Those in favor, say "Eye"

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.
