If you love conspiracy thrillers, this film is worth watching.

Eagle Eye is fast-paced with great performances, good editing, directing, e.c.t, the plot is over the top, but so what?! There's a few annoying scenes, one is when Shia LaBeouf's character is at work talking about things that are none of his business - like his co-worker's girlfriend and sex life (dude keep your mouth shut and play cards) second scene is when he's trying to flirt with some girl on the train (please, like she is just going to call some random guy who could be a serial rapist for all she knows), third scene is a little bit later on in the movie when he is sounding like a nagging 90 year old husband telling the woman how to drive (when you watch that high speed car chase scene, the lady is doing a damn good job! and the dude is complaining about "clutching before shifting" or whatever the hell it is, what does it matter at this point, dude?! the talking computer is already instructing to run a red light or whatever, the car is not stopping, you're getting away from the cops, you ain't the one driving, so keep quiet!).

As the film goes on we see the relationship between the two main characters, the majority of the time they're at each other's throats and the lady starts running her mouth judging his twin brother (who is deceased and was in the military) while not stopping to think that her son (who is playing an instrument at The White House or wherever it is) could possibly be connected to the current situation.

Eagle Eye is a thrill ride that doesn't stop, the characters are constantly on the move trying to obey a damn machine, when you watch this flick for the first time - you don't realise that it's a computer until it's revealed (so there's your plot twist!) There is another twist, but it isn't that exciting or shocking.

If you have a list of conspiracy thrillers that you need to watch, add this one.

Too Much Action, Too Little Acting

The film Eagle Eye advertised itself as an action/adventure film with an aspect of government intrigue ("Big Brother is watching"). While the film definitely delivers in the action department, there really isn't much else to it.

The basic plot of the film centers on two ordinary people who are suddenly "activated" as terrorists and must flee for there lives while only taking messages from all the electronic devices around them (cell phones, billboards, streaming text lines, LED signs, etc.). As they continue to flee, they eventually figure out what is happening to them and begin hatching a plan to stop it.

The reason why this movie fails, though, is that is doesn't focuses on the dramatic elements that are actually interesting. Without giving any spoilers, the film would have been much better served focusing on two areas: 1. The technology behind why the two U.S. citizens are "activated" in the first place; and 2. The relationship between the two lead characters played by Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan.

Instead, however, this film is little more than one pulse-pounding action sequence after another with just enough (but much too little) exposition to move the plot forward to the next crazy chase scene. Plus, the focus of the film seemed to be on the fact that the two citizens can be communicated with or found by any electronic device. However, it covered much of the same territory that Will Smith and Gene Hackman did in Enemy of the State a decade ago. There wasn't enough new material to really hook me into this plot thread.

Thus, if you a huge fan of non-stop action in films, you will love this film. If you need some character and plot development to keep your interest, though, then skip this movie, as you will just be disappointed.

Oh My God!! Either make it comedy or some moderation in your exaggeration!

I mean dude, like common, there should be some moderation in exaggerating your plot, if you are not intending to make a comedy movie.

I mean listening to a digital (recorded) voice that knows answer to all Your questions and have the answers and protocol of all odds, is that aliens we are dealing with? I mean oh my goodness! The leading roles transformation was not any less exaggerated! From a student to a top notch professional who had extreme experience in handling the guns and... eyes rolling up!

I Didn't even got a chance to pay attention to acting and performances!

I guess the performance were not as bad as the story line. Also I give some credits to the camera as it created a semi- exciting movie.
