Storyline

This is the story of a young resourceful heroine woman named Lisa Reisert 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, 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.

Trivia

In the scene in the plane bathroom, Cillian Murphy actually missed the place to throw Rachel McAdams. She hit her head and was knocked unconscious for a half hour. After that she was ready for work and Murphy was afraid to do it again. This was captured on film and is included in the gag reel on the DVD. In the take that's in the film Murphy's hand can be seen holding the back of McAdams' head to guard it from it hitting again. See more »

Goofs

(at around 43 mins) When Jack is holding Lisa's head in the airplane restroom, he is holding her cheeks. In the side view, his thumb is in the middle (center of her jaw). But when it cuts to the close up, Jack's thumb should be visible but it isn't as it is much further back. It then goes back to the side view and his hand is in the center again. See more »

New Creep On the Block
20 August 2005 | by (Long Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

What I liked best in this film is that like the films of Hitchcock, it is a thriller that does not take itself too seriously.

Hitchcock understood that people go the the movies to have a good time. Something that Hollywood seems to have forgotten in recent years. This is a thriller, but it has plenty of laughs and always has one eye winking at the camera.

Rachel McAdams is wonderful as always. Cillian Murphy is creepier than he was in Batman Begins. In the old days, there were guys who always played the bad guy. We don't see much of that these days because I suspect the Hollywood agents consider it a bad career move, but Cillian Murphy is really good at being bad.

The directing is surprising stylish. The story is good but the dialog could have used some sprucing up.

"Red Eye" is a really fun film and people were applauding when the closing credits started rolling. If you are in the mood for an enjoyable escapist thriller, "Red Eye" might be your ticket.
