(mbc.net) Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) fears flying, and the flight she is about to embark upon will not lessen her fright.  Before boarding she meets Jackson Rippner (Cillian Murphy), whose name strangely resembles Jack the Ripper's.  It is not coincidental that Rippner is seated beside Lisa once aboard the plane, either.

Once in flight Jackson reveals his true intentions.  He is part of a terrorist cell intending to assassinate the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security, but needs Lisa's help to do so.  If she refuses to comply her father faces certain death.  Can Lisa save her father's life and the deputy secretary's? 

Red Eye won a Teen Choice Award and was nominated for an MTV Movie Award.  The picture earned $95 million at the end of its theatrical run -- more than triple its $26 million budget.
