RED EYE, POSTERRED EYE, 2005
Movie Reviews

Director: Wes Craven

Starring: Cillian Murphy, Rachel McAdams, Brian Cox, Jayma Mays, Laura Johnson
Review by Roshni Nayee


SYNOPSIS:

Lisa Reisert 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 pleasantly surprised to find that she is seated next to Jackson Rippner; a charming man with whom she had shared a drink--and perhaps even a brief flirtation--in the airport terminal. But moments after takeoff, Jackson drops his facade and menacingly reveals the real reason he's on board: he is an operative in a plot to kill the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security. What’s this got to do with Lisa? – She’s the key to its success, and Jackson has a plan to make her cooperate.

REVIEW:

It’s Wes Craven, and he’s back on form by bringing us this new thriller with a fresh cast. Lisa Reisert, played by charming and pretty Rachel McAdams (Mean Girls and Wedding Crashers), is a ballsy, young, Miami-based hotel manager. Taking a ‘red eye’ (hence the name, of course) flight from Texas after the funeral of her grandmother, she’s rushing to go home and get back to her on-the-go lifestyle of mobile phones and snappy customers. Standing in line to check-in for her delayed flight, she meets the charming (and not to mention, downright handsome) Jackson Rippner, portrayed by the ever so talented Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later and Batman Begins). When Jackson starts to flirt with Lisa, it makes her a little more than uncomfortable for reasons we’re unaware of us as of yet. What’s all the more creepy for Lisa is when Jackson unnervingly picks her favourite drink and brushes it off as being a developed skill.

When her flight is eventually called for boarding, she’s pleasantly surprised to find herself seated next to none other than Jackson. Their chat starts off slightly awkward (and a lot flirtatious) and then cleverly lulls us into a false sense of security. Moments after their flight has lifted off, Jackson’s cool and charming persona dramatically changes to become darker (almost akin to his Scarecrow in Batman). He reveals that their coincidental encounter was, in fact, intentional; Jackson is a manager for an assassination company, and their current target is Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Charles Keefe, who is scheduled to check in to Lisa’s hotel. If she refuses to cooperate, Jackson will order his lackey to murder her father

Lisa must battle against Jackson to save her father and save Keefe. If she saves one, she kills the other. After an intense battle between both parties (and a bathroom scene in which, sadly, there is no kiss much to the disappointment of many fans), Lisa manages to save both her father and Keefe and escapes, if barely, the clutches of Rippner.

When up in the air, Craven manages to pull us into this heightened sense of a thrill (hence it being a thriller, really) and we’re sat on the edge of our seats, biting our nails in anticipation. Now, you could apply common sense to this plot and think, “Well, hang on. Surely....” and then flows a list of things you’d do as a manager. But really....if this was a film about common senses...it wouldn’t be a film, would it? The entire point of this high-flying (see the pun, aren’t I clever?) thriller is to thrust you into the shoes of our heroine...and our antagonist.

With our leading lady, we see a profound mix of determination, graceful femininity, vulnerability and well-placed intelligence. She counters Jackson’s personality right on par; it’s hardly a wonder why we didn’t see a small kiss! Her character’s strength and resilience shows the hope and danger we all encounter through our life (though probably not as extreme as a psychopathic, ice blue eyed stranger wanting you for an assassination attempt).

Then you get Jackson; an arrogant, smart, sophisticated and calculated man who knows where he stands and what he wants. Jackson is the complete opposite to Lisa; he’s a man of fact and she’s all emotion. Jackson represents the very being who we all want to be – do anything to get what we want.

Okay, so there are a handful of people I know who wouldn’t watch this movie again with me...ever. But with the clever little plot twists and brilliant acting from not only our leading roles (a nod to Brian Cox), I can honestly say that Red Eye, although not as smart and well planned out, is certainly a Craven-y movie and is a must to have on you DVD collection shelf. Oh come one, who can say ‘no’ to Cillian Murphy’s hypnotising blue eyes?
