Eagle Eye stars Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan as Jerry Shaw and Rachel Hollowman. The movie starts off with the government trying to decided weather or not they should kill a group of people they believe maybe terrorist. When a computer comes up with a 51% chance they are the terrorists the government acts and kills them all. Meanwhile Jerry Shaw an unsuccessful young man who works at a copy shop finds out his identical twin brother has died. You soon learn that Jerry was always in the shadow of his “perfect” brother who worked for the government.
Upon returning home to his apartment he finds boxes and containers filled with weapons, explosives, and forged documents. He then receives a phone call from an unknown woman who tells him that he has 30 seconds to get out of the apartment before the FBI get there and that he has been “activated”. While this is going on Rachel Hollowman is forced to do whatever the woman on the phone wants for fear that she will harm her son. The mysterious woman has the power to control anything electronic and helps bring the two together while getting them to do her bidding to take down the American government.
I thought the movie was a little plain. Don’t get me wrong it had some great moments and a good mystery. But some of it was to drug out and when the mystery is finally solved you are kind of left with an “oh okay…” felling instead of a shocking twist like your expecting. Despite this I still think it’s a movie worth seeing. The unknown woman gives a god-like twist in the form that the two main characters have no choice and are merely puppets. Although you might not enjoy it if you have seen I-Robot because it is defiantly a copy of that in most aspects. All and all I would give it a 6.5/10 not a smash hit but still something worth seeing.
