The Eye

I found "The Eye" to be rather predictable in spots, including foreseeing a character's death. Part of the conclusion was unexpected. Jessica Alba turns in a fine performance as Sydney Wells, a girl who has been blind since the age of five and is given a chance to see from the eyes of a [...]
