The Eye

Rated 3.0 A young blind woman (Lee Sin-je) receives a cornea transplant, but her restored eyesight brings mysterious visions that others can’t see—an ability her therapist suspects she inherited from the deceased organ donor. Here’s a stylish, engrossing thriller from Hong Kong (in Cantonese and Thai, with subtitles), written and directed by the Pang brothers (first names Danny and Oxide). It’s better in the early scenes, before the plot actually gets under way, as we see the heroine struggling to rebuild her “visual vocabulary.” After that, it settles down somewhere between cliche and comfortable predictability. Still, the Pangs are assured in their technique, delivering some delicious scares along the way, and Lee Sin-je is excellent—she actually manages to look as though her own eyes are unfamiliar to her.
