Why, Cillian Murphy, why you gotta be like that?
Why Red Eye? Remember those other films you were in, that were so great?
We loved you in 28 Days Later. You were so terrified and confused and brave (and naked).
We adored you in Breakfast on Pluto. You were sweet and vulnerable and beautiful.
Why did you agree to make a Hollywood stinker? What happened to your lovely Irish lilt?
We understand that you have to eat, but we are happy to support films that are not formulaic and boring and ridiculous. Your character in Red Eye had no character. There were no surprises, no drama. The best part was that first head butt:
("he just Doherty'd her!")
After that ... nothing.
We felt nothing when you died. (No spoiler here - you could see it coming from the beginning of the film)
We were far more shocked in Breakfast on Pluto when the bomb went off in the nightclub, and you were worried that you had wrecked your stockings.
Please consider your films more carefully. You will be lost in the Hollywood machine and you are too special for that.
