Movie Review Red Eye
Wes Craven thriller enters the arena with intense drama, “Red Eye,” starring Rachel McAdams (“The Notebook”) and Cillian Murphy (“Batman Begins”). And for most of the film, Craven really struts his stuff and shows that it can carry out projects outside the horror genre. It’s just the conclusion of the film that makes “Red Eye” less than horrormeister Craven’s best work.

McAdams plays Lisa Reisert, an organized, hotel manager of the type A personality who returns home after being out of town due to the death in the family. When red-eye flight in Dallas to Miami was delayed, she spends time with a handsome, friendly stranger (Murphy) seems to be hitting her. She likes the attention, but she is suspicious of men in general. Still, she left to buy a drink in the airport bar before it forms part, on board his plane.

Once on board, she will take your assigned seat and found the stranger sitting next to him. It is a strange and puzzling coincidence, but it handles very well.

As the flight starts, the stranger reveals that it is no coincidence. He presents himself as Jackson Rippner (one of the coolest names for a movie villain) and reveals the intricate details of his plan. Lisa Jackson been following for weeks and she knows so much about that right becomes scared. He explained that the need to make a phone call back to his hotel to move the head of Homeland Security and his family to a different room. If she can not get your assistant to changing room, his father will be killed by a man who sits at home waiting for word to go ahead with the coup. All it takes is a call from Jackson to have her dead father or a phone call from Lisa to save his life. The choice depends on it.

The premise is timely and the use of enclosed space of an aircraft joins the white knuckles emotions. For the most part, it’s just McAdams and Murphy sparring with each other, while others sat in the car, and Craven masterfully manipulates the set-up to capture every nuance of both actors. There is a bit of a claustrophobic feeling of the film, but you need to convey how Lisa feels trapped by this man who holds her hostage.

When the film remains focused on McAdams and Murphy and his battle of wills aboard the plane, is at its best. Although there is not much room to move around, Craven does an excellent job of building tension by simply using about 20 feet of space on board a plane.

McAdams and Murphy both really have to lie to transmit the battle between the innocent woman who just wants to go home and the man holding his father’s life in your hands. Both actors are brilliant in their roles and can not stop thinking about how difficult it must have been to maintain that level of tension as players all the time the movie was filmed. No wonder McAdams said he needed to massage and hot tubs at the end of the day.

Cillian Murphy roles that are not bad, but turns back-to-back as Scarecrow in “Batman Begins” and the villain in “Red Eye”, actually is amplified by the creepy factor. Those eyes, which are intense and exciting in person, take a cold and flinty tint when it is being really nasty on the screen. And with “red eye” and “Batman Begins”, Murphy shows that it is very good at being nasty.

Rachel McAdams gives another performance class. McAdams is a treasure store performances Grade A – “Mean Girls,” “The Notebook”, have to play the straight woman in Wedding Crashers, “and now this plays a woman who is determined not to be subjected again. McAdams can appeal to both sexes and she has enough talent to succeed in the characters of all different genres of films.

There are good results by supporting players including veteran film Brian Cox (his physical transformation is such that it does not recognize the first few minutes he was on the screen) and newcomer Jayma Mays. But the film is basically a two-person show with all the other characters not only to serve as a backdrop.

Until the last 20 minutes or so, “Red Eye” does not cheat. But when the final act, which kind of feels like it has been cut from a different movie and dropped it like it or not. After two thirds of the film in a tense drama between a woman and a man, to join in an action film to sum up the story – complete with a chase scene through the airport and a huge explosion – seems like an extension unnecessary. We are asking the public to take a leap of faith that the last third of the film really belongs to the first two acts, and not everyone will be willing to make that leap. I took the leap because the rest of the film was so intense that deliciously Craven almost could be forgiven for not finding a better way to finish the film.
