5.0 out of 5 stars What you see is not what you get Feb. 24 2007
For a blind person, it would seem like a dream come true to have their sight restored. But what if it came with a price? That is the idea behind the Pang Brothers' "The Eye" ("Jian gui"), one of the most minimalistic -- and chilling -- horror movies in years.

Wong Kar Mun (Angelica Lee) has been blind since she was two, but a cornea transplant restores her sight. At first she can only see blurry figures. But then, Mun sees shadowy phantoms leading away the spirits of the dead. Even worse, she sees the ghosts of suicides lingering on, doomed to repeat their deaths until they are put to rest.

Horrified by this, she goes to her psychotherapist Dr. Wah (Lawrence Chou) for help. Stretching professional ethics, the lovestruck doctor manages to get the records of the donor, and they go to see her family in a rural village. And guided by dreams and visions, Mun learns of the tragic life of a girl, Ling, who could foresee death...

If you like serial killers, buckets of blood and screaming blondes in your horror movies, don't watch "The Eye." As a horror movie, it will be too subtle, too quiet, and too full of intelligent questions about life and death.

There are only a couple of real "horror" moments in here, where things look grotesque. Most of the time, it's psychological in nature; at one point, we hear that suicides are doomed to repeat their deaths -- it's horrifying enough to contemplate someone killing themselves, but doing it over and over? Even worse, we see this in action.

And the Pang Bros. handle this wonderfully. Many of the ghosts appear and vanish quickly, giving a shock to the audience; at other times, they explore the changes that sight brings to Mun's life. But at the same time, the Bros.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Creepy Suspense Horror June 11 2004
By CreepyT
Mun (Angelica Lee) is a girl who has had the misfortune of being blind since the age of two. When she undergoes a cornea transplant to restore her sight, both she and her family are overjoyed at the chance for Mun to see again. When Mun begins to see odd shadows and vague, blurry images, it is difficult to discern at first whether or not this is a mere side effect of the surgery. Clearly, her eyes need time to readjust to their surroundings, and her brain time to accept and interpret this new information.
Once Mun leaves the hospital and arrives home, it becomes clear that something is terribly wrong. Her room constantly changes, and she not only sees, but also has conversations with the recently departed. Mun, traumatized by these images and living in a constant state of anxiety, retreats for a while back into the dark world she was familiar with for most of her life. After some coaxing from her therapist, Dr. Wah, (Lawrence Chou), who eventually believes that there is more to her story than meets the eye (no pun intended), Mun realizes that she needs to face her fears and this new way of life. Of course, the fact that Mun's therapist sees her as something more than a mere patient only serves to help Mun's cause. Together the two set out to understand these images and their meanings. Does Mun only perceive things differently due to the fact that her "visual vocabulary" is under-developed? Or has she inherited an unexpected "gift" from her cornea donor?
"The Eye" is everything a suspenseful horror/thriller movie should be. Though this film, at many times, highly resembles "The Sixth Sense," the Pang brothers have managed to put their own unique twist on the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Takes it back to the roots of suspense thrillers! April 1 2004
This movie scared the bajeezums outta me!
Not too many recent movies has done that to me so this movie gets an instant 3 stars. I thought it was dubbed in english but disappointed it wasn't but it stil didn't make much of a difference because the movie was easy to follow, very very suspensful, and that music had me a bit shook. Try watching this movie in the dark by yourself with your DVD stereo equipment with the surround DTS sound all the way up!
The part that scared me the most was when the kid ying ying (I didn't know she was a girl, thought she was a boy)
was all excited about finally feeling better and able to do the fun things with Mun they had promised on each others recovery.....then the grim reaper shadow was like sitting in the shadows waiting....
The ghost near her apartment with the kid eating the candles and asking about his report card was also a scarey highlight not to mention the dude in the elevator!
The only real downside of this movie was the so unecessary romance betweent the Mun and the young doctor, they didn't even share a kiss in the movie nor was it believable that he was infatuated or in love with her.
The movie lost me a little when they went to do a background check on the donor eye to Thailand and it became a little "yadda yadda" but picked up again towards the end.
maybe if this movie was dubbed in english more people would give it a chance and see it for how great it really is. I recommend this movie if your into good old fashioned suspense with minimum gore.

1.0 out of 5 stars dull
This is just China's attempt to re-create Sixth Sense and The Ring (both movies I'm not too fond of either). I knew pretty much what was going to happen after every scene. Read more
