Storyline

The year is 1976 and it is a dangerous year in the Straits of Yucatan. The man is Jack Hooks, a former cop set up by his corrupt partner and sent to jail for a drug crime he didn't commit. After being yanked out of prison with an early release deal offered by the DEA, he is sent on a do or die mission; bring down the drug trade of his former partner, Frank Rossi and his contacts. Hooks has no choice but to plunge into the underworld of marijuana smuggling by making one big run through the narrow channel that flows between Cuba and Mexico, also known as "The Eye", and into the heart of a violent Colombian drug ring. At the head of the ring is Carlos Huerta, the ruthless drug lord that is Rossi's source of supply, and Jack's final objective. That is, if he can escape the jungles of Colombia before his clandestine relationship with Elena, Huerta's young courtesan is discovered and threatens the lives of himself, his crew and his freedom.

I highly recommend Through the Eye!
13 February 2012 | by doubleasizemoreSee all my reviews

Through the Eye is incredibly well made. The directing, storytelling, acting, cinematography .... all top-notch! Tom Sizemore delivers another one of his incredibly well paced performances. He is clearly back at the top of his game. Sizemore's acting in this film has all of the subtlety and nuance that marked his rise to stardom in the 90s. It is uplifting as well, after so much turmoil in his personal life, to see him regain his footing as an actor. It is also great to see Sizemore lending his considerable talents to the young director of this film, who did an exemplary job with what I've heard was a shoe-string budget. Although Sizemore's considerable talent and experience are unmistakable, the ensemble cast all hold their own. I highly recommend Through the Eye. Bravo!
