A while back I watched The Eye, a Chinese movie directed by brothers Oxide Pang Chun and Danny Pang, about a woman who has surgery to restore her eyesight and also ends up with the ability to see ghosts. Despite its promising first half, The Eye pretty much fell apart at the end, which was really too bad. But since the first part was pretty good, I was willing to give the Pang brothers a second chance.
After watching The Eye 10 (it’s actually only the third in the series), I have to say that the Pang brothers are now completely out of chances. They’ve blown it more completely than I could have imagined. The Eye 10 isn’t just a bad movie, it’s an absolutely atrocious movie. It’s so bad that I don’t even want to talk about it (not that the story makes any goddamn sense, mind you). It’s probably in the top five worst films I have ever seen, edging out the likes of Boa vs Python and I Come in Peace. Ok, so Alone in the Dark (which I saw last year) and Ju-Rei (which I also reviewed) were probably worse, but it’s pretty close. I’d say this movie gives St. John’s Wart a run for it’s money on the “what were they thinking?” index.
Don’t see The Eye. But if you do, DO NOT see The Eye 10. Never again, Pang brothers!
