I know a lot of people out there love Jessica Alba, and I can only surmise it must be because the girl has a nice ass on her and doesn’t look all that shabby in a two-piece bikini. (Am I the only one who saw “Into the Blue” for the story? For shame!) But you gotta admit — the girl can’t act to save her life. So yeah, I’m looking forward to Alba’s remake of the Pang Brothers’ “The Eye” horror movie, only because it’s going to be worth a couple of chuckles to see Alba attempt to play moody and scared shitless, two states of being the character will be put through often throughout the movie. It’s gonna be funny, come on, you gotta admit that!
Anyhoo. Here’s the plot:
Sydney Wells (Jessica Alba) is an accomplished, independent, Los Angeles-based concert violinist. She is also blind, and has been so since a childhood tragedy. As our story opens, Sydney undergoes a double corneal transplant, a surgery she has waited her whole life to have, and her sight is restored. After the surgery, neural ophthalmologist Dr. Paul Faulkner (Alessandro Nivola) helps Sydney with the difficult adjustment, and with the support of her older sister Helen (Parker Posey), Sydney learns to see again.
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.
