Movie Tip #33 - Red Eye

Director Wes Craven

Starring: Rachel McAdams, Cillian Murphy, Brian Cox

Description: This is the story of a young resourceful heroine woman named Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) who hates to fly, but the terror that awaits her on the night flight to Miami has nothing to do with a fear of flying! Upon boarding the plane, Lisa is trapped on a red-eye flight with a creepy villainous handsome and charming man by the name of Jackson Rippner (Cillian Murphy), who's playing middle-man in the plot to assassinate a Homeland Security official. He's got her father pinned down by a would-be killer, using that advantage to coerce Lisa into phoning the luxury resort where she works and arranging to move the target into a pre-set position.

Review: It's a very exciting thriller, that keeps you on the edge of your seat at all times. Murphy plays a very believable villian, but most of the credit goes to McAdams. She's a very talented actress and she proves that in this film. I always loved her performance, but this movie is my favourite. The turning point for her character is the bathroom scene, where she tells herself to 'get up'. Wonderfull scene. The fact that she's on a plane and she is stuck in a terrible situation which she can't get out of, makes this movie exciting. It leaves you with a claustrophobic feeling. I really enjoy this film and so should you, so go watcht it.
