Red Eye (2005)

A woman is kidnapped by a stranger on a routine flight. Threatened by the potential murder of her father, she is pulled into a plot to assist her captor in offing a politician. (IMDb)

An engaging thriller that doesn’t do much to substantiate its plot, but it’s really about the great interplay between Murphy and McAdams anyways. The former shines first as the creepy killer both disturbingly forceful and frighteningly charming, while the latter, with a stab of a pen to the throat, goes full-on badass as the plane touches down, stealing a car, running over a bad guy, and duking it out one-on-one with another, all before telling her jerk hotel customers to shove it up their ass.

6.9/10
