Teen on Skateboard:
Oh, shit. Thanks. I didn't see that.
Neither did I.
[voice-over while Sydney walks in the street and settles in a café]
People say seeing is believing, but for me, that's not entirely true. I lost my sight when I was five years old. Those memories of what I have seen have faded so much that I doubt I'd even recognize myself anymore. Now I see using my other senses. I can smell the rain before it drops, but I can't watch it fall. I can feel the sun on my face, but I can't see it rise...

I haven't seen the Asian version; for all I know it's a masterpiece, but if the plot was similar to what I just saw, then I'm afraid the writers were morons. To be fair there are a couple of very creepy scenes: one is when Alba is first getting her bandages removed and all she sees are blurry figures, including one more figure than the number of people in the room; the other scene involves a mirror (I won't spoil it). But these are the only scenes that actually have anything to do with the premise. Not only does she see ghosts and spirits, they also talk to her. Hello, filmmakers, I thought this movie was about an eye? Is she hearing things through her eye? Some coherency please? She also has full-on hallucinations that leave her bruised, because I guess whoever wrote this movie does not know about the five senses and thinks every possible stimulus a person can experience is somehow connected to their eyes. They should have just called this movie "A Bunch of Crazy S##t Happens to Jessica Alba," because The Eye factors into about 10% of it. Mainly Alba just goes around doing stupid things, like smashing all her light bulbs instead of turning off the switch or playing the violin as if she is an actual blind person who does not know what she is holding. Finally she saves the day by getting everyone off a bus in the middle of the desert by convincing them that terrorists have planted a bomb under it, which is sad because it's actually plausible (that people would believe it, I mean). Yeah, basically there are people who think this is a legitimately good movie, and they just need to die. 1/10.
