  • I think this is a very gentler and milder version of the Japanese version, and it’s much suited for scaredy-cats, that’s my general opinion
  • This movie is nothing and not that scary compared to the original version, and I’m really disappointed in it

      This movie is the American version of the original Japanese version’s The Eye, and I honestly think it was poorly done. The effects were much scarier and of course, the original movie was different from this one as it had omitted parts that were much scarier than by watching this American version. I think this is a very gentler and milder version of the Japanese version, and it’s much suited for scaredy-cats, that’s my general opinion.

      The movie is all about a very talented but blind


      violinist who is named Sydney Wells, who is played by Jessica Alba here, and she gets an eye transplant so she could see, and when she does adjust to her new vision, she grasps things that people couldn’t normally see in the supernatural world, and she’s trying to help someone who’s had these eyes before so she could stop all the trouble and hassling that the visions are giving her, and in the end she succeeds by preventing an accident and saving lives, but she ...

      • also loses her sight once again because during that particular scene, she turns back and looks at the big explosion and shards of glass pierces through her eyes, and in the Japanese version the woman had opted to be blind again and have her corneal transplants removed rather than by seeing something all the time, and here I think that scene was the much subtler version which Sydney Wells (Jessica Alba) chooses to stay blind, and she’s very happy in the end because she turns
        out to be an even more famous violinist in the city.

        This movie is nothing and not that scary compared to the original version, and I’m really disappointed in it. But I guess it’s better that the director had shown and directed a much milder version so the other people who are too scared to watch the original Japanese one can relate to this, and although the stories are similar, I still say the Japanese versions wins this round hands down. I rate this movie a 5 only.
