Rotten: It creates a good atmosphere, but no tension. The movie is just not memorable.
- Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: ...ultimately establishes itself as the most effective endeavor of its kind since 2005's Dark Water.
- David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Effectively creepsome until it bogs down somewhat in plot explication.
- Dennis Harvey, Variety, Friday, April 25, 2008
Awesome supernatural remake from 2002 Hong Kong horror film which is a tradition of The Sixth Sense meets Final Destination. Jessica Alba makes a fantastic performance as a young blind woman who, after undergoing experimental surgery to regain her sight, seeing freakish visions. Some scenes are so scary of what Alba sees in her vision. Horror remake of Hong Kong's 2002 Gin gwai (aka The Eye)

This film starts out feeling like a horror/thriller genre, but slowly develops into more of a mystery film. The acting is weak and the plot is predictable. The film also feels a little too much like The Sixth Sense.

Jessica Alba played an excellent part in this movie, she was over the top. If this was the first and only movie I ever saw of hers I would think she was the best modern actress in movies today. A excellent movie theme. Sydney Wells is blind and she receives a cornea transplant, that's where he troubles begin, she starts seeing dead people, people be taken into death by shadow people, and the future. A great creepy movie. Worth 4 1/2 stars.
