A warning about the threat in our own backyard -- but as often is the case with Hollywood blockbusters, the warning comes across more like fear-mongering than constructive social criticism. Personally, I prefer my cinema sans mongering.

Eagle Eye isn't awful, just trite ... it suffers from the same problem most high concept films have; it's all smoke, but no fire.

In Eagle Eye, we're meant to fear our GPS.

As the absurd contrivances mount, and the omnipotence of the shadowy conspiracy becomes more and more hard to buy into, the movie loses its footing.

Caruso's films only borrow great ideas rather than use them for special inspiration.

The fever-pitch paranoia of this terrorist thriller, the seizure-inducing editing, the dense layers slapped on a fairly simple plot all point to a kind of overkill that only Hollywood money can buy.

The only title that works for this movie is Three Days of the Mongoloid.

The word 'preposterous' is too moderate to describe Eagle Eye. This film contains not a single plausible moment after the opening sequence, and that's borderline.

Should this film be a huge box office success, it will stand as a sad testament to how low the bar for cinematic entertainment has been set.

A promising premise, some intense action, and a lively appearance by Billy Bob Thornton might have been enough to squeak this one by as a summer movie.

What might have been a zeitgeist-fueled paranoid thriller along the lines of The Conversation or Three Days of the Condor winds up an unintentionally hilarious exercise in the suspension of disbelief, peppered with confusingly edited car cha

For all its digitally effected chaos, the cinematic threat level in Eagle Eye never even comes close to orange.

So what we have here is the world's smartest entity giving orders to the two dumbest people.

Everything's chopped up into those woozy, bite-size snippets of flashing lights and spinning tires, thrown into a blender and then regurgitated on screen.

The trouble with Shia? He's no Henry Fonda, Jimmy Stewart, or Cary Grant. And as for Caruso, well, Brian De Palma can rest easy.

Eagle Eye isn't horrible, but it does make sure the audience is bruised, buffeted and battered with rock-'em, sock-'em action in a deliberate attempt to shake logical questions about the plot out of their heads.

Take one or two good ideas and add a lot of political thriller clichés and you end up with a disappointingly predictable action movie that doesn't necessarily deliver on the promised goods.

As the film drags on, there are several nauseatingly dogmatic moments that make you feel like you're trapped in some kind of uber-liberal rally.
