    A Monkey Theorum Movie

    The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time will eventually produce the works of Shakespeare. Coincidently, this same theory applies to the onslaught of Asian horror remakes that is stomping Hollywood into submission. If enough of these films are remade, then eventually one will be acceptable, and alas it has happened.The Eye, starring Jessica Alba is directed by two relative first timers by the names of David Moreau and Xavier Palud, and they can certainly create a film that boasts certain elements of stylish direction. Unfortunately, along with the good, it seems that all of this style of remake fear deviation from a backbone template. Not to give anything away to those who are not familiar with Asian horror remakes, but one element that is consistent is that the basis of all the evil happenings is from a spirit looking for salvation of some sort. While The Eye, does choose to spin this cliché slightly, it is afraid to go all the way.Suffering from total blindness after a childhood accident, young beauty Sydney Wells (Alba) is given a chance at an eye transplant that will allow her to see for the first time in decades. Not surprisingly, she begins to see things that ought not to be. Aided by an appointed shrink, played by Alessandro Nivola, they confront the visions and try to track the donor eyes back to their sinister source. This journey is bounds more intelligent then the average horror story, and the standard for dumb decisions is cleverly hidden by the fact that Sydney is fully or partially blind for most of the film. This presents a cushion of forgives per se, as her lack of sight can lead her into frightening situations, without appearing ignorant.And there are certainly some frightening "boo" moments; uniquely accentuated by a well used pallet of sound. There are also exactly three expertly executed scenes, worthy of recognition. The first is a scene in which a blurry eyed Sydney looks into the mirror for the first time with creepy consequences; the second features a member of the un-dead accompanying her in an elevator and the third takes the form of an intervention between a mother who has recently lost her son. If The Eye had presented more scenes of this Claiborne, it certainly could have been something special. Instead, the ending descends into the mediocrity, which at first seemed more then acceptable, but took off into a sixth sense meets final destination action spin off; which although still thrilling, did not fit the tone and atmosphere of the former acts. The "blurry vision" that is used early on with some skill, is overused by the end, the flashbacks replace the more effective quick cutbacks and it simply does not hold onto its success.This is however Alba's best performance, and although not saying much, this shows there is hope for her future acting career. While more films like The Eye would be welcome, I think it better to forfeit the Asian remakes all together, then to wait for the monkey's second draft.Read all my reviews at: http://www.simonsaysmovies.blogspot.com

    Not as good as pictured

    The trailer made it seem so terrifying,but watching the movie was an eye bleeder.There was no boo factor anywhere,because you saw it coming.This is basically a total hash of The Sixth Sense and Final Destiantion,and the Japanese original looks so much better (I didn't see it yet,but I should).Plot:Sydney Wells is a happy-go lucky violinist,who is calm,cool and collected.She has been blind since she was five,due to a firecracker accident.When she got a cornea transplant,everything is blurry,and she sees shadows and ghosts taking people away.Now she has to find out who her donor is and why this is happening.The plot is interesting though,but the suspense is rarely there,unless you are easily scared.The build up to the end is nice,but there is so much unnecessary stuff in it.The only cool scene was the climatic ending on the boarder.Overall,this move had so much potential but didn't pull all the way through.Rating ***/***** Overall:4/10

    A Knock-out from Start to Finish!

    Despite lukewarm reviews, the film broke even on its opening weekend and went on to pay back its investors at least three times their money. I side with the majority of moviegoers who made this feat possible. Jessica Alba gives a superb performance. She never falters in what was certainly an extremely difficult role. I was with her all the way. The film was not only expensively and expansively produced, but brilliantly directed from go to whoa. The support cast was also well chosen. I would have cast someone more conventional than Alessandro Nivola, but it's still a fine bit of casting and it works out well. Production values are superb. The climax really knocked me out!
