Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Red Eye belongs to the genre in which a director attempts to sustain a heightened level of suspense for long enough that the audience will not notice how incredibly stupid the screenplay is.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Unfortunately, Red Eye goes from being a powerful thriller to a far more predictable story of revenge.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 155 moviegoer opinions. First let me say that these are perfectly acceptable opinions. They're not really high, but they are no where close to low. From these opinions I'm very confident that the majority of moviegoers seeing "Red Eye" will find it very enjoyable. However, I must add that there are a fair number of somewhat low opinions. So, a small percentage of you may be less than impressed with this movie, but I doubt that anyone will truly dislike it.
Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) 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 (Cillian Murphy), the seemingly 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 façade 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…and Lisa is the key to its success. If she refuses to cooperate, her own father will be killed by an assassin awaiting a call from Jackson.
Trapped within the confines of a jet at 30,000 feet, Lisa has nowhere to run and no way to summon help without endangering her father, her fellow passengers and her own life. As the miles tick by, Lisa knows she is running out of time as she desperately looks for a way to thwart her ruthless captor and stop a terrible murder.
