Movie review for Red Eye

"Red Eye"

Starring: Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy

Genre: Drama / Thriller

Tagline: Fear Takes Flight!

Plot Outline: A woman is kidnapped by a stranger on a routine flight. Threatened by the potential murder of her father, she is pulled into a plot to assist her captor in offing a wealthy executive.

This story starts off with Lisa Reisert, who is played by McAdams, getting ready to take a flight. She meets an interesting man while waiting to board the plane named Jackson Rippner, who is played by Cillian Murphy. A tale of two strangers, meeting on a routing plane flight, that quickly turns into a whirlwind of terror, deceit and high flying. Lisa learns a terrible secret that Jackson was keeping and she struggles to race against time to keep his secret from becoming a reality.

Wow, I really made this movie sound good. The thing is that this movie really didn't have a plot. I cant really tell you anymore without giving anything away. It's sad really. I was highly disappointed that I didn't get to witness any "mile high club" miles rack up on top of this plane crash of a movie. McAdams and Murphy did a good job but it wasn't enough to keep me interested. Keep an eye out for the pen scene. It is truly the highlight of this movie.

In case you haven't figured out my rating:

Bribe someone to rent this movie for you if you want to look at some good eye candy or a 2.15 out of a 7.
