I found Red Eye to be a wonderfully entertaining movie. I love Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy and they both do a fabulous job here.
McAdams plays Lisa, a hotel manager who, on an late night-early morning flight, finds herself seated beside the worst person she could possibly imagine Jackson Rippner(Cillian Murphy). The rest of the movie is Jack trying to force Lisa into aiding him with an assasination.
Lisa is a strong woman who although frightened gives him one hell of a fight. She is tough, loving, resourceful, and a heck of a snazzy dresser. I felt she was a really believable character and was played out brilliantly by fellow Canadian, McAdams.
As the viewer you are drawn to Lisa's side immediately, cheering for her, but you cannot help cheering for the villian either.
Cillian Murphy plays Jackson Rippner with such grace and style that you just smirk at whatever he says. Murphy's strikingly crystal blue eyes and handsome appearance make the villian so sexy you almost forget that he's evil.
Murphy's and McAdams on screen chemistry adds to many levels of Red Eye. They play off each other so well and with such ease, you can tell they are enjoying themselves.
There are also a many number of minor characters on the plane that add to the humour and terror of the film.
I highly recommend this film to anybody. It's not perticularly scary, but it does give you one heck of an adrenaline rush.
