From Amazon.co.uk

Eagle Eye reteams Shia LaBeouf with his Disturbia director D J Caruso, and the two of them prove once more that they know how to knock out a decent thriller. Kicking off with lots of serious faces, military advisors and a decision to make about whether to bomb a target or not, this quick, brutal introduction not only kick starts the plot developments, but it also brings in the advanced technology that underpins much of what Eagle Eye does. Not that it’s all that plausible, but it’s the kind of film that very much rewards turning your brain down a notch, and being willing to sit back to be entertained.

Should you do that, then Eagle Eye is a very enjoyable tech-thriller, that papers over its cracks by racing out of the traps at speed, and never really looking back. Fortunately, it remembers to keep you entertained as it does so, and Shia LaBeouf already eats roles like this up in his sleep. The plot of Eagle Eye finds LaBeouf’s character receiving a mobile phone call with strict instructions to do exactly what he’s told, else things are going to go very wrong, very quickly. Michelle Monaghan is in a similar position, and the pair of them find themselves caught up in a sinister plot that we won’t be spoiling for you here.

Now granted, you can drive trucks through some of the plot holes here, and likewise, there’s ground covered here that Cellular did perfectly well. Yet Eagle Eye is what it is: solid blockbuster entertainment, starring a man whose star is very much on the rise. It might be a hard film to love, but it’s equally hard not to enjoy it. --Jon Foster

Product Description

Starring Shia LaBeouf as a 20something slacker who, with his single mother, are framed as terrorists and forced to become members of a cell with plans to commit a political assassination.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh 21 July 2009
By OEJ TOP 100 REVIEWER TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
It's an action thriller which starts off with good promise but gradually slides away towards nothingness by the end. At first I didn't know what was going on - why are this couple (completely unknown to each other) being pursued by the FBI around Chicago and being aided, mainly by cellphone, by some super-smart protector who - or which - knows every move that both hunters and hunted are about to make seconds before they happen, by controlling traffic lights, making trains go backwards and enabling a dozen or more other devices operate to her/its command?

In a nutshell it's about terrorism and America's paranoia with it, along with implications that society today is too 'watched over' by way of the internet, CCTV and mobile phones. This is a combination of what might be thought of as the big-brother science fiction of the future, in which everything you say or do is monitored and potentially used against you, except it is obviously set in the present day. The Eagle Eye of the title doffs a cap to at least two iconic sci-fi creations, most notably HAL from 2001 A Space Odyssey, and also, in concept, to the Terminator films - the essence of which covered the super-machines which over time became more powerful than their makers and ended up trying to destroy the human race. So at its core there's very little originality here, and while decent efforts are made to humanise the story by letting us into the hearts and minds of the two leading players (and victims of the relentless pursuit), that kind of drifts away in the second half of the film while the camera focuses on the big finale and the rather over-used idea of blasting the US President to kingdom come.

Personally I liked the beginning but grew bored by the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars So the scumbag president won? 13 Sep 2012
By cas
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a non stop action flick with some good plot ideas but I was left with mixed feelings about the ending of this film. See, that AI machine was designed to protect the Constitution and eliminate any government officials that act against it and there were quite a few on the list. Good idea to self-preserve democracy and proper order! My problem with the ending is that the machine was terminated and the rogue officials were left in charge. How am I supposed to understand this message? Whose liberty was protected at the end? People's or the failed government's?

Format:DVD
Shia LaBeouf stars as Jerry, a young slacker whose overachieving twin brother dies mysteriously.
When he returns home, he finds that he has been framed as a terrorist -
along with his single mother!
Forced to become members of a cell that has plans to carry out a political assassination,
they must work together to extricate themselves.
Two unsuspecting Americans are separately drawn into a conspiracy by a mysterious woman they have never met,
but who seems to know their every move. By the time they discover her frightening identity,
they have become her unwitting accomplices in a diabolical assassination plot.
WHAT CAN I SAY?
Eagle Eye sees the return of Shia LaBeouf and Disturbia director D.J. Caruso!
this movie has an enormous energy that takes possession of the spectator,
so the final experience is very entertaining.
The action scenes are very well filmed :
they are exciting and they feel realistic.
The movie has a good tone because it never stops entertaining.
The actors also did a good job.Shia LaBeouf,Michelle Monaghan,Billy Bob Thornton, bring a lot of enthusiasm...
this film is fast pump up the action!
you can say it is
a little brother to 'enemy of the state',
but this little brother is on speed..... .
it is the sheer speed of the film is what I mean .
and it is that speed plus enthusiasm
is what make Eagle Eye so much fun to watch.
I can only describe it as
the fast and furious roller-coaster ride'

A Very face paced movie. Slightly far fetched, although entertaining. A film that makes you think about today's surveillance society.

4.0 out of 5 stars at this price, a great buy 14 Aug 2011
By tallmanbaby TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is about surveillance and the role of the state, having said all that is it certainly not The Conversation [DVD] or Blow Out [DVD]. In fact it is not even as good as Die Hard 4.0 [2007] [DVD] which it shares numerous similarities with.

It is a big budget techno-thriller for people who don't want to think too hard, a more recent version of Enemy Of The State [DVD].

The film pretty much grabs you from the get go, the leads are okay, if nothing too special. It is all a bit frantic and shouty, but it all sort of makes sense. The story is actually fairly well put together, with a beginning, middle and end, and some character development. There is probably a thoughtful film in there trying to get out, but this is the big loud no brainer version and none the worse for that. There is no point listing the technical errors or improbabilities, there are too many to mention, but within its own internal world it works okay.

I watched the film with my family a while back, and we were looking for something to watch last night. We had all enjoyed it first time round, but everyone else had pretty much forgotten it! In just a few words, entertaining, completely forgettable.

This film went totally 'under the radar' of most film lovers and is a superb watch. A clever plot full of twists and turns builds to a very tense climax - thoroughly recommended.
