THE EYE adapts the influential 2002 Hong Kong ghost tale by the Pang brothers into a star vehicle for Jessica Alba. While it remains faithful to the original story, this version ups the number of jolts for thrill-seeking Western audiences. Writing/directing team David Moreau and Xavier Palud, creators of the popular 2006 French thriller THEM, make their U.S. debut with a screenplay by Sebastian Gutierrez (SNAKES ON A PLANE), putting a few new twists on a cult favourite..

Concert violinist Sydney Wells (Alba) has been blind since she was five, when an accident involving firecrackers damaged her corneas. Now in her mid-20s, she has just undergone a transplant, a risky procedure that is not always successful. When the bandages come off, her sight slowly returns, and everything she sees is a new experience. A happy occasion becomes terrifying, though, when she begins to see horrifying visions of the dead. Fearing that shes losing her sanity, she enlists the help of Dr. Paul Faulkner (Alessandro Nivola), who uncovers the identity of the donor of her new corneas and travels with her to Mexico to unravel the mystery of her horrific visions. Spare and effective, THE EYE retains the two most startling sequences from the original film--a truly chilling floating dead man in an elevator and an elaborate, explosive set piece at the conclusion. Moreau, Palud, and Gutierrez jazz the story up in other spots, with quick scares, sharp music cues, and twitchy apparitions reminiscent of those in JACOB'S LADDER, but the essence remains the same. Alba is fine as damsel in distress Sydney, and the always-enjoyable Parker Posey is uncharacteristically low-key as her airline hostess sister. With no gore or anything else objectionable, the film may also be good choice for younger viewers who enjoy a good scare.

"this version ups the number of jolts for thrill-seeking Western audiences"

nah

"this version doesn't contain subtitles so the majority of the functionally illiterate western world can watch this"

there, fixed that for you.

I've been narked off about stuff like this since the remake of "Taxi" into the travesty it turned into. That was quickly followed by revulsion as "Rec" (the best and most original film for years) was remade shot for shot as "Quarantine" in US English. Seriously, if you can't read, you shouldn't have access to mass media.

"This version doesn't contain subtitles so you don't miss any action, scares, dialog or the characters body language."

There, fixed that for you. :p

Personally I think dubbed is the lesser of the two evils, provided it's done well. I can't keep up with the pace of subtitles as some characters talk fast or there's something interesting happening in the film other than dialog. There's nothing worse than having to constantly rewind and having the suspense ruined, to me that's worse than being constantly interrupted by phone calls and the like.

Oh, and mass media is one of the best ways of learning to read. :roll:

This was a pretty poor film, not as bad as Quarantine though. >_<

Dubbed is the lesser of two evils until you realise they're not actually saying what was in the original script but substituting words which "look" as though the characters are saying them, to keep the lip-sync, and the voices sound nothing like you would expect the character to sound like...

Subtitling's the way forward. You should always watch a film as it was originally intended.

I can live with the lips being out of sync, at least I can look at the lips to tell they're out of sync. As originally intended would be in their own language without subtitles or dubs, both dubs and subtitles are compromises to the original film. Dubs are less distracting visually as your ears are taking on more of the workload rather than relying solely on your eyes. I guess it comes down to preference in the end though...both ways have their positives and negatives. :)
