Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is a supernatural thriller that is largely a one-woman show for Jessica Alba. There isn't much in the way of graphic violence, but the creepy images and atmosphere make this inappropriate for younger viewers.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Once again, we are faced with a movie featuring an interesting premise and solid set-up that falls apart when it comes to the climax and conclusion.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 72 moviegoers:
TEENS:Both males and females really enjoyed "The Eye." Over three-quarters rated it very high. Just a few didn't care for it, but that's typical of this type of movie. Highly Recommended!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Very good, but not quite great, reviews from both the males and the females. Most enjoyed "The Eye" very much. However, a large percentage rated it "Very Good," which is a good, but not great review. It indicates an above average movie. Recommended.
ADULTS:About half the males loved "The Eye" and half didn't care much for it. The lower reviews rated it average to below average with one person hating it. The female reviews were quite a bit better. About three-quarters truly enjoyed "The Eye." Only a few were somewhat disappointed.
If this looks like a movie you would enjoy then I have no problem recommending it. Just keep in mind it's a supernatural type story.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Sydney Wells (JESSICA ALBA) is an accomplished, independent, Los Angeles-based concert violinist. She is also blind, and has been so since a childhood tragedy. As our story opens, Sydney undergoes a double corneal transplant, a surgery she has waited her whole life to have, and her sight is restored. After the surgery, neural ophthalmologist Dr. Paul Faulkner (ALESSANDRO NIVOLA) helps Sydney with the difficult adjustment, and with the support of her older sister Helen (PARKER POSEY), Sydney learns to see again.

But Sydney's happiness is short-lived as unexplainable shadowy and frightening images start to haunt her. Are they a passing aftermath of her surgery, Sydney's mind adjusting to sight, a product of her imagination, or something horrifyingly real? As Sydney's family and friends begin to doubt her sanity, Sydney is soon convinced that her anonymous eye donor has somehow opened the door to a terrifying world only she can now see.
