Storyline

This is the story of a young resourceful heroine 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

Presidents or (in this case) Homeland Security can be moved to another location if the secret service are not satisfied with hotel security arrangements or if there's an incident. One of them even recommends the Miami Hilton in the film just because the room was changed. They have up to 200 secret service agents and metal detectors. Agents can be disguised to root out anyone who looks suspicious, not on a list, wearing legitimate ID, who may be a terrorist and concealing weapons. They're trained in the martial arts, equipped with handguns and Uzis (handheld machine guns), sign to each other if they need to be quiet, speak in code indicating levels of danger, frisk anyone who comes in, wear bulletproof vests, have radios or pins on their lapels and always ready to make an arrest. But they are trained to be polite and discreet. Reporter have to have an appointment to see the president. They can even cancel an event if need be. See more »

Goofs

It says in the description that the flight is at 30,000ft. Eastbound flights travel at odd numbers not even ones for example 29,000 31,000 etc., the even altitudes are for westbound flights. See more »

Well directed
15 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had fun watching Red Eye. It's not a masterpiece, but it's well directed and structured. Cillian Murphy and Rachel McAdams are perfect in the role. Yes, it's the same old story with a different setting but Wes Craven gave it a good pace. At least not another Scream with the usual college killer. It's nice when you can see a clean, coherent thriller even when originality doesn't stand out as its main character. Particularly from a film-maker like Craven that has brought so many innovative ideas to the thriller and horror genre in the past and that now just lends himself to bringing home what could have been a good TV movie had it not been released theatrically. Good job!
