Title: Red Eye

Date Of Release: Jan 1, 2006

Review Date: November 7, 2006

Rating: PG-13

Running time: 86 Minutes

Box Office Gross: 70,000,000

Recommendation: Gripping, engrossing film. Contains scenes of violence, not appropriate for kids.

Site Rating: 5 out of 10 stars

The plot of this film centers around a hotel manager, Lisa Reisert, who is being stalked by a freelance kidnapper/government over thrower, Jack Ripner (get it, Jack The Ripper). During a cross-country flight he holds her hostage against her will and terrorizes her, unbeknownst to the other passengers and flight crew.

His goal: to force her to change room reservations at the hotel she manages in Miami, switching the incoming head of Homeland Security to a specific room, which would allow his terror accomplices the perfect opportunity to carry out a pre-planned attack in an astonishing manner, thus sending a sick, violent message to the government.  

Yea, pretty much the worst flight ever. If you have a fear of flying, this movie isnít gonna help. However, the movie was written in a manner that it has a proper conclusion. Cillian Murphy, whose name I was pronouncing just as itís written, not realizing its pronounced Killian, was very believable in this role. He is a talented actor. So is Rachel McAdams, who played her part very well.  

Joke: the name of the airline is Fresh Air. First off, I would not book a reservation on an airline named Fresh Air. I'd be too busy wondering if the plane is sealed and just where this fresh air is coming from and how it's getting in the plane. Secondly, the first thing I would have done when I got off the plane is sue that airline. The lawsuit would read:

ďThe Defendants, Fresh Air Psycho Air, sat me next to the Anglo-Saxon equivalent of Osama Bin Laden, without warning or advanced notice.

I could not get my nail file, nail clippers, James Bond knife pen, nunchucks or tazser pass Homeland Security (the nerve of them) and as a result was left defenseless on said flight.

I was consequently pimp slapped, head butted, thrown, tripped and flipped and worst of all, said assailant ruined my new hairstyle during the fracas. My curls were lopsided after said flight.

Even worse, I was not given my customary, complimentary packet of peanuts by Fresh Air Psycho Air.

Next time, Iím taking the bus.

Signed, disgruntled black woman who wants her money backĒ
