Madamoiselle: The Eye

After a long baking session, I managed to reward myself to watch a new movie "The Eye" at The Mall Cinema in Gadong today. There were actually 2 movies that I wanted to watch but to the last minute, I chose "The Eye" because Jessica Alba was in it and I just love her.

A warning I would like to tell you out there, if you have a problem with heart attack, Don't watch this. It's a horror-suspense movie, horror wasn't the issue but the suspense was made you jump off your seat and it's not once or twice but several times. hehehe.. especially if you're watching it with high blast volumes like the cinema does. ;p

My say, I like it. I thought it would be predictable and would end in a non satisfying way but I was wrong. It went well and ended just perfectly....for me that is. Jessica had played her role wonderfully and I would have enjoyed the whole movie if the guys behind me would just zipped their lips all the way. It was rather annoying with all their stupid remarks although I do not understand one bit what they were saying cause it sounded 'indian'. By the end of the movie, I get to see the faces but I was confused. They looked like a 'Filipino' but their conversation sounded very 'Indian'. Totally confused!

Anyway, my overall rating for this movie is a 7.5 out of 10.

Sydney Wells is an accomplished concert violinist who has been blind since a childhood tragedy. Sydney undergoes a double corneal transplant, and her sight is restored. But Sydney's happiness is short-lived as unexplainable shadowy and frightening images start to haunt her. Are they a passing aftermath of her surgery, Sydney's mind adjusting to sight, a product of her imagination, or something horrifyingly real? As Sydney's family and friends begin to doubt her sanity, Sydney is soon convinced that her anonymous eye donor has somehow opened the door to a terrifying world only she can now see.
