Description:

Jessica Alba can see dead people in The Eye, the umpteenth Hollywood remake of an Asian horror film. The source material is Korean directors Danny and Oxide Pang's chilling 2002 feature of the same name, and the remake (by French directors David Moreau and Xavier Palud, who made 2006's Them) sticks to the basic facts of the original. Here, Alba is a blind concert musician who undergoes a corneal transplant; the catch is that while the operation restores her sight, it also allows her to glimpse the spirits of the dead that pass among the living, as well as the underworld figures that bring them to the beyond. The frustration and terror of Alba's predicament makes for a compelling story, but while the film is executed with the utmost of professionalism, the scares (the picture's raison d'etre) are delivered in the same ham-fisted manner as any big-budget horror film of the last few years. The result is another disappointing American remake that underscores how the international film community has become more successful at delivering yet another of our most quintessential film genres. -- Paul Gaita
