We gave it a C-

Beauty may be in the eyes of its comely stars (who filmed this project the year before ”The Phantom Menace” and ”Double Jeopardy” made them household names), but looks don’t take Eye of the Beholder, an overly inscrutable thriller, very far. A reclusive British surveillance expert known as the Eye (McGregor) finds a replacement for his estranged little girl in the object of his attention, a slinky murderess (Judd) in need of a responsive father figure. A match made for therapy.
