Eagle Eye

Eagle Eye
Rated PG-13
118 Minutes
Nicole’s Rating: A-

When I say non-stop action, I can honestly mean it for this movie. There is hardly a time when you’re not trying to figure out what may happen next or if this is the scene that will end the movie.

Eagle Eye is a government program that has taken over “thinking” for itself and is trying to clean up how the politicians run the country. In order to do this, the program recruits ordinary people to do its deed and in the middle of this is Jerry Shaw (Shia LeBeouf) and Michelle Monaghan (Rachel Hollman) have the biggest tasks to do, if not major consequences will occur.

Overall this movie was great! It kept you going and your eyes peeled to what might happen next. The only thing I have a problem with is something that for some reason Hollywood loves to do lately, and that is extreme close up cinema-photography. I just wanted them the pull back the camera 20 feet in the chase scenes so we can get the full view of the landscape, instead of the full view the actors expressions.

I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys a good action flick, but if you get motion sickness or don’t care for highly intense films, I’d pass this one by. Oh, and it has Shia in it, so you can't go wrong.

Oooh, I really want to see this. But I'll probably have to watch it on the small screen because I get motion sick.
