Set in the 1990s, The Mind's Eye tells the story of Zack Connors (Graham Skipper), a man with telekinetic powers who has been on the run from the government agency that wants to capture and exploit him for his abilities. He meets Rachel Meadows (Lauren Ashley Carter), another telekinetic who has also been on the run for years, and together they try to escape the clutches of Dr. Slovak (John Speredakos), the head of the agency.

The movie opens with a brutal action sequence in which Zack uses his telekinetic powers to fight off a team of government agents sent to capture him. From there, the plot focuses on Zack and Rachel's attempts to evade and outwit their pursuers while also dealing with their increasingly unstable powers.

As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that Dr. Slovak and his team are not just interested in Zack and Rachel's powers, they are actively trying to use them to create a telekinetic army. This leads to a climactic showdown in which Zack and Rachel must use all their powers to take down Dr. Slovak and his agents.

One of the strengths of The Mind's Eye is its lean, no-nonsense approach to storytelling. The plot is straightforward and the characters are well-defined without being overly complicated. This allows the movie to focus on what it does best: thrilling action sequences that showcase the characters' telekinetic powers. The special effects are impressive given the movie's low budget, and the action choreography is top-notch.

The movie is also anchored by strong performances from its three main actors. Graham Skipper imbues Zack with a vulnerability and weariness that makes him a sympathetic protagonist, while Lauren Ashley Carter brings an edge and intensity to Rachel that makes her a perfect foil for Zack. John Speredakos is suitably creepy as the villainous Dr. Slovak, delivering lines with a quiet menace that makes him a formidable opponent.

The Mind's Eye is also notable for its nods to classic sci-fi and horror films. The 1990s setting gives the movie a retro feel, and there are references to everything from David Cronenberg's Scanners to Stephen King's Firestarter. Despite these nods, though, the movie feels fresh and inventive, thanks to its strong performances and well-executed action sequences.

One of the few drawbacks of The Mind's Eye is that it is somewhat predictable. The basic plot beats are familiar to anyone who has seen a superhero or action movie, and there are few surprises to be found in the story. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing, as the movie delivers on its promises of thrilling action and impressive special effects.

Overall, The Mind's Eye is a solid genre movie that delivers plenty of thrills and has a lot of heart. It may not break any new ground in terms of storytelling, but its execution is strong enough to make it an enjoyable and satisfying watch. Fans of sci-fi, action, and horror movies will find plenty to like here.

The Mind's Eye is a 2016 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.7 and a MetaScore of 55.
