Eagle Eye is a totally derivative, unoriginal techno-thriller, cribbing scenes and ideas from better films. ... But it's also thoroughly entertaining.

...one could certainly do far worse as far as movies of this ilk go.

What, you can't relate to someone being controlled by an omniscient machine?

An intelligent nail biter.

I give the film credit for moving along and, for at least the first half, keeping you engaged in the mystery. At the same time, when the film turns, it turns south.

A fun techno romp, mixing great bang for your buck with insights into the dangers of restricting civil liberties. Now, anyone for Shia killing blondes dressed as his dead mother?

The plot is totally nonsensical but is played at such a thrilling pace that it barely matters.

Enjoyable, fast-paced thriller that compensates for its increasingly ridiculous plot with strong performances, great direction and some terrific action sequences.

The 1984 nightmare has been bolted to 2001 (as in Space Odyssey) to make one of the better action thrillers of 2008

Even though the political, big-brother-is-watching, conspiratorial aspect of the film tries much too hard, the fast and furious pace of Eagle Eye makes for an entertaining time.

A big, happily implausible blockbuster action movie, and on that level it totally succeeds.

Eagle Eye's simplistic and colorful contrivance is oddly refreshing in its preposterous exuberance...a transparent treat at best. Thoroughly rollicking and roguish...

Keeps our attention all the way through, even as the plot gets increasingly preposterous

The film is probably twenty minutes too long, and can't seem to decide if its techno-philic or -phobic, but is an otherwise compelling and cogent performance piece for LaBeouf and company.

To make barcodes scary, a thriller needs a pace faster than a busy self-scan checkout. Thankfully, there's no need for a price, or pulse, check on this furious, if exhausting, flat-world thriller that Thomas Friedman would appreciate.

While highly improbably and overly chaotic, the film is entertaining, which is all that really matters from this type of movie.

Bristling along on one amazing narrative convolution after another, and fueled by fascinating gung ho performances from everyone involved, Eagle Eye is a jovial serving of cinematic junk food.
