YesAsia Editorial Description

After shining in Princess D, Angelica Lee gives another stellar performance in the much talked-about thriller of the season. The scary parts are, well, scary, and live up to the hype. But what sets this movie apart is its attention to detail and great character development. This box-office hit from the Pang Brothers is another notable entry to the must-see list of 2002.

  At the age of two Mann went blind. Eighteen years later, a new and risky corneal transplant operation restores her vision; but a series of inexplicable events lead her to believe there is more than meets the eye to her new-found gift of sight. Unable to define her own identity, she comes to understand that whenever she looks into a mirror she doesn't see herself but instead she sees another woman: Ling, the original owner of the corneals. Desperate to uncover the truth, Mann visits Ling's old village in Northern Thailand. It seems that Mann has inherited Ling's fate and the misery that comes with the ability to see more than one wants to see. Is her fate predetermined or does she have the courage and the strength to change the future?

Professional Review of "The Eye (VCD) (Hong Kong Version)"

January 11, 2006

This professional review refers to The Eye (DTS Version)

In the past few years, Hong Kong horror film genre has been dominated by Troublesome Night and The Ring. Most of the horror films are either a complete replica or slight modification of these films. Generally, they follow the same format: Two to three short stories with the emphasis of a retaliation plot, and the cinematic device derives mainly from the highly successful Japanese horror film the Ring. Can the emergence of the Pang Brothers' The Eye break these cliches?

The plot of this film shares some similarities with the Hollywood blokbuster Sixth Sense. Man (Anglica Lee) is a blind girl. With a new and risky corneal transplant operation, she restores her vision. After that, strange things happen. She sees more than normal person. What makes her more scared is that she cannot see herself in the mirror. A stranger rather appears from the reflected image. She begins to wonder who the original owner of the corneal is...

Just a little background information, the Pang brothers are not newcomers of Hong Kong cinema. They have been doing a lot of editing works (e.g. The Storm riders) before. In the late 1990s, they moved to Thailand. They directed their first film there and it became a big success. Filmmaker Peter Chan then invited them back to Hong Kong to direct this film. Their editing backgrounds have allowed them to maximize the flexibility and capacity of the narrative.

The story and the whole setup of this film is not innovative at all. In fact, after all these years of exploitation, the story is hardly the attraction of the horror genre anymore. The prominent factor that keeps us in our seat is rather the vision of the directors. Whether the genre can be rejuvenated is all up to their capability. Based on this criterion, this film is quite a success. The cinematography is effective. The noir style builds up the gloomy atmosphere of the film tangibly. Loneliness is stressed through the carefully considered composition. Even at daytime scene, we can sense the solitude of the character. The editing is superbly done, it really draws us into the narrative. For instance, the montage of the hospital flashback is creepy. Even though all the twists and the ending do not break any cliche, the extraordinary direction by the Pang brothers succeeds in garnering the attention of the audience and keeping them fully engaged in the film.

Angelica Lee's portrayal of the blind girl is conspicuous. She has a vulnerable face. Actually I think it is all about her eyes. I tell you what, her bright and big eyes can act! You do not have to wait for her to speak the dialogues, her eyes alone already speak for herself, they always carry complex emotions. Lawrence Chow's role as the psychiatrist lacks authority. I mean, he does not have a doctor's face or attitude at all. But what he is doing in the film is not about his profession anyway, so it is still tolerable. The rest of the cast (excluding the cameo of Candy Lo) are mostly unknown actors. I think it reinforces the realistic feeling of the film, hence making the story more plausible.

This film is well received and widely praised in Hong Kong, but don't expect it to be a total reinvention of the horror genre. The Pang brothers merely refined and furnished the story with the right elements at the right time. To put it in a simple term, their role in this film is equal to the importance of a good chef to a restaurant.

DVD (HK version) - The DVD version features beautiful wide screen transfer and DTS sound. It also has Cantonese/Mandarin language tracks. Give it a shot if you are a fan of the horror genre.

Awesome movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This horror movie is probably one of the scariest movie i've ever seen. I really like cause it has scary scenes through out the whole movie. It's not one of the movies where it's only scary at the end or the beginning. It also has a really good story line to it too. I've seen a lot of horror movies and this is still my number 1.

Scary Stuff. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I finally decided to watch this after hearing there would be a Hollywood remake starring Jessica Alba (which is good too!).

Any sort of Chinese language is Greek to me, (Japanese is my language) and for some reason it made it that bit more interesting. This is the first non-Japanese horror I've ever watched and I was blown away. Of course, those who know Asian horror will be aware that little cultural things will make it that bit more scarier, like Ringu for example. I enjoyed the film, but it didn't scare me at all. However, my native Japanese friends have told me that they couldn't even watch it at some parts. I will admit to being a bit wary that I wouldn't be as scared because I didn't know the cultural folk stories that some towns and races have been raised with.

Alas, this film freaked me out to the core. Even the opening credits, with the hands scratching and grabbing the white sheet was spine tingling. The plot itself is actually quite a sad story but nonetheless scary! Very scary! Alot of parts are "blink-and-you'll-miss-it", but these are what make The Eye special. Its like "Was I supposed to see that?! Is that actually THERE?!" This film is very good. Directing, actors and story.

For some top class Asian horror, I recommend The Eye.

great Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
one of my favourite movies great performances and effects. The subtitles are perfect, as is the picture and audio. I have seen the whole trilogy and this is by far the best, if you like this one then skip the others.

One of the Better Ones.... Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
This show was one of the blockbuster here in my country when it first came out.I have to say i was very impressed with Angelica Lee and am proud that she won award in her role here and to be representing our country is another achievement.

Quite a scary show and i will never forget when she was in the lift scene.Pretty scary when it's you alone riding in the lift at night.Would reccommend people to buy this first one instead of The Eye 2.
