They sit together in the plane, and Jack reveals that he wants Lisa to change the room in Lux of an important American politician to facilitate a terrorist attempt against him.

    Will keep you awake, jittery and perched on the edge of your seat for pretty much the entire flight.

    The gripping, seat- clutching suspense in this baby will pin you to your seat.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    A good measure of the movie's white-knuckle fun comes from Craven's old-hand familiarity with the way thrillers tick.

    With so much going for it, it's sad that Red Eye goes into such a third-act tailspin and cliched slasher-flick finale.

    When Craven says "Jump!" we all do it at once, and giggle at how easily we've fallen under the spell. The key is that Craven is laughing with us, not at us. Full Review

    May not seem to be your typical Wes Craven movie. It's not really horror, there are no marketable monsters, and unlike "Cursed," "Scream 3" and other recent Craven offerings, it's actually an enjoyable time at the movies.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    The plot is not absolutely airtight, but Craven's filmmaking is too fast-moving and too involving for this to matter. As a movie, Red-Eye is in every way as well crafted and sharply designed as the Boeing 767 Lisa fatefully boards.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The casting of the two leads is a nice surprise in Red Eye, as is its modest scale. One of the ironies about the film is that its relatively small-movie feel allows Mr. Craven to focus on the sorts of things - the performances and little bits of business from the extras - that a director like Michael Bay doesn't have time for, partly because he is so busy blowing stuff up.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    A minimalist exercise in maximalist suspense.

    Slate Full Review
  • David Denby

    Red Eye, which is exactly eighty-five minutes long, has been made with classical technique and bravura skill, and it's leaving moviegoers in a rare state of satisfaction.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Helped enormously by Rachel McAdams, whose performance is convincing because she keeps it at ground level; thrillers are invitations to overact, but she remains plausible even when the action ratchets up around her.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    McAdams, who resembles a more compact and subtle Geena Davis, captures both the strength and the insecurity beneath her sharp-witted heroine's aim-to-please facade.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Craven ("Scream," "Nightmare on Elm Street") is already a legend in horror film circles, but this is the first time he has tried his hand at a slick, relatively bloodless suspense-thriller, and the genre suits him.

    The movie is fun, fun, fun.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    In short, Red Eye hits the bull's-eye.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Murphy, in the boogeyman role, toggles between seductive and sinister with enough conviction to make you forget that his character makes no sense at all.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Favoring precision filmmaking over cheap thrills, with a vibe more Alfred Hitchcock than Freddy Krueger, Red Eye establishes two intelligent characters and lets audiences sit back and enjoy an entertaining battle of brains and wills.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Sara Brady

    Red Eye packs only about 15 minutes of solid scary, but really, that’s about all the time a human heart can spend lodged in one’s throat.

    Sitting through Red Eye is like watching a master carpenter at work on a custom bookcase. No one would call the result art, but you're sure bound to admire the sheer craft of the thing, the clean lines and seamless joints and meticulous attention to detail.

    Craven's films aren't showy, but that should never be held against them. In their streamlined construction and rock-solid simplicity lay their brilliance.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    A terrific thriller...until it turns into yet another Wes Craven movie.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Red Eye has a devilish charm. It pulls just about every nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat trick imaginable, yet gets away with it through what is, admittedly, a clever and original gimmick.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Craven eschews horror trappings and gore for a well-paced and engaging thriller that keeps the audience involved despite the fact that most of what takes place onscreen is a conversation between two people.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    If constructing a thriller could be likened to building a house, then Wes Craven's Red Eye is a perfect piece of architecture: It's clean-lined and soundly structured, without a foot of wasted space or any materials left unused.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Dennis Lim

    Craven's terror-alert white-knuckler is zippy, unpretentious.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Robert Koehler

    Departing less from his horror bailiwick than he did with "Music Of The Heart" in 1999, Wes Craven retains shocks but dispenses with scares in the negligible Red Eye.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    That's not to say it's great; it's not. Maybe it's not to say it's good, because it's only sort of good. It is to say, however, that it's nifty.

    If you're willing to suspend disbelief, this is a pretty good ride.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Red Eye's no classic, but with its smart, twisty little script and those two killer performances, it is a helluva lot of fun.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Unfortunately, Red Eye goes from being a powerful thriller to a far more predictable story of revenge.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    A silly script and uneven pacing.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    After nearly a decade of duds, Wes Craven reasserts his claim to being a master of suspense with this solid little airborne thriller.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Liz Beardsworth

    Not the most sophisticated psychological thriller, yet slick fun.

    Empire Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Despite some fast-paced direction by Wes Craven, Red Eye finally gets so silly, it's practically popping its wing-rivets.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Between them, first-time screenwriter Carl Ellsworth and director Wes Craven don't come up with a single clever way to generate suspense, and the movie's onboard atmosphere is so phony.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A one-trick action thriller that feels like a poor cousin of an episode of ''24." Call it ''12."
