What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry Don't bother with this one.
Bruce Dennill If this same movie was made with less pretty leads and more suggestion than special effects, it would etch itself in your unconscious, probably unwelcomed. In this incarnation, though, it's all too repetitive and predictable, and the plot holes are big enough to drive everyone's limousines through.
Natalie Sineke When a film's trailer is more entertaining than the movie itself, you know it's made for DVD. And this is simply a B-grade rip-off of a Chinese masterpiece.
Neil Smith Is she seeing dead people? Or could these shadowy spectres be warning of some disaster in the making? You'll be hard pressed to care.
Adam Nayman The Eye is good-looking (like the original) and not offensively dumb (like 80 per cent of the Asian horror remakes crowding screens over the last half-decade) but a lack of of crappiness doesn’t equal real quality.
James Berardinelli 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.
C. Fuchs The Eye is long on subjective camerawork, short on intelligent dialogue
Tomatometer Another tedious remake of an Asian horror film.
