movie-the-eye.jpgSynopsis

Sydney Wells (Alba) was blinded as a child and finally has the chance for a corneal transplant.

After being home from the hospital for awhile, she begins having strange visions. As it turns out, her corneas came from a woman who had committed suicide because she also had visions, of the souls of dead people.

Her doctor tries to help her, but she is the only one that can really do anything about it.

Commentary

Although Jessica Alba is a pretty good actress, this type of plot has been beaten to death over and over in previous films. There is simply nothing new in this one, and it is rather boring.

Technical

Like most Blu-ray discs now, the image quality is good, but nothing spectacular. The sound track benefits from DTS-HD Master Audio more than the picture benefits from 1080p.

Extras

There are two discs for this movie, and a digital copy of the film, in SD, is on the second disc for loading onto your video iPod.
