I went today with a cousin of mine whose wife wanted to see it, and it was a little better than I expected. It didn't have a lot of scary scenes, just a few. Jessica Alba does a great job, and so did Parker Posey as her sister. It was really done well, and the music matched the movie's dark tone. It felt a little weak towards the end though.

Overall Grade = C
(My favorite Japanese horror remake = The Ring)

I wasn't dissapointed because I like watching Jessica Alba in all her movies, but this one was a lamer..its could have been much scarierer, all the spooks were very cliched and predictable. Just thinking Renee Zellweger was going to do this before Alba leaves me P U Z Z L E D!!!!

They say "s--t rolls downhill" and after an absolute stunner like Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, what was Alba gonna do (with her looks and zero talent)???

Who keeps hiring Jessica Alba? She can't act her way out of a wet paper bag. All she's good for is dancing around half naked, which is why her role in "Sin City" was her best "performance" yet. And she's not that hot anyway. I hate how the media keeps shoving it down our throats that she the sexiest woman alive.

She's not!

I watched part of this at a friend's house. This is one of Alba's more cardboard-like performances. The movie wasn't exactly memorable either, and Parker Posey is probably the best thing in it.

Alba's on-going cardboard performances are why she's got my vote as the front-runner for Worst Actress this year.

Why won't she go away?!

Why won't Alba-tross go away?  Because she makes Jessica Simpson look bad and Katie Holmes look good? . . .

Katie Holmes' career is officially over (thanks to Mr. Cruise) and any movie with Jessica Simpson in the credits is just laughed at. I was thinking more along the lines of, maybe Alba sleeps around with directors?

Alba just screams: "Hey, look at me, I'm a talentless 'actress' hired just for my looks. I'm so lazy, I never bothered to take acting classes. But it doesn't matter because magazines love me and give me tons of PR I shouldn't be getting in the first place. Plus, I'm ashamed of my Latin background, I'm proud that I don't know a word of Spanish, and I did the "Fantasic Four" movies so I could live my girlhood dream of being white, so our makeup artists invented "whiteface" just for me!" 

I hate her so much!

She's less like a beautiful song about lovers parting in the morning (alba), and more like a cursed albatross around your neck, right? . . .

Hi,

I agree with You.

Alba only looks good in this movie.

Well looking good will only take you so far in a movie. It works for stock women characters whose sole reason for being on-screen is to look hot. But when it comes to carrying an entire movie by "acting", Alba fails on every level, which is why she's in line for a long overdue Razzie "win".

Ugh...I don't know what to say about this film.  The poster was interesting enough, but what the hell was that?

I actually wasn't impressed until the ending. I loved the ending because it surprised me. I thought there would be an opened ending for a sequel and I was praying, "End it here! End it here! Don't leave an opened ending for a sequel if this film becomes successful!" and they did end it there! I was effing happy after that. I also liked Alba's character.

Well, that would be getting 2 out of 4 things right. 1. An ending with closure, and 2. An "interesting" main character. But they failed in the areas of 3. Making a movie based on an original concept, and 4. Hiring an actress who is famous for her acting ability and not just her looks. Had this movie been an original and smart horror movie starring Parker Posey as the lead, chances are, it wouldn't be here at the Razzie forum.

Did the Pang Brothers make the Alba remake? I know they made the original "Eye" movie, but if they all they did was give away the rights for the movie to H-Wood, that doesn't place the blame on them as badly as Bankok Dangerous, which they rewrote and watered down for America.
