Great direction, not so great plot, terrific Shia LaBeouf performance.

Rediculous storyline that was so stupid I could not get into it at all! Only watched it all to see what hair brained ending they came up with.

Plenty of action, but quite predictable.

After a brief 20 minutes of story and setting establishment, young Jerry Shaw (LeBeouf) walks into his apartment, which has been filled with military weapons, technology and explosive fertilizer. A voice on his phone tells him he has 30 seconds to escape, and on schedule the FBI bursts into his apartment. "Eagle Eye" rarely lets up from this moment on. Lebeouf and Monaghan drive a movie which never fails to captivate with its exciting chases and action scenes. The acting, script and overall plot, while far from perfect (and the latter, heavily borrowed), work well enough and it's all so exciting you won't really notice anyways. It simultaneously brings up strong questions about civil liberties in the midst of homeland defense. In the end, Eagle Eye is just what it promises to be - a nonstop thrill ride and a very fun time at the movies.

Brilliant movie. Not sure what's with the bad rating but certainly one of the most satisfying one.

All over the place and generic but does a few things right

Favorite Shia Labeouf movie! It's like Enemy of the State meets The Fugitive!

8/12/2016: A pretty decent movie. The cast was very good and it had a fast paced and interesting plot.

The Fugitive lite meets WarGames lite meets 2001 lite.... and that does not add up to a full meal.

Very entertaining and a good story even though it seems like allot of effort for something that could of been done easier but I suppose it wouldn't of been as entertaining, Good action intense chase scenes, The special effects looked good, The acting was on the mark, Ignore the hate watch it for yourself.

D.J. Caruso and Steven Spielberg join forces to create this heart-racing thriller. The whole time the film was playing, I was completely captivated I felt like I was watching my first horror movie. Eagle Eye plays out the whole plot as it could actually happen. I remember when I used to like this movie when I was younger, and I still do. Whenever one filmmaker, D.J. Caruso for example, teams up with producer ace Steven Spielberg, you get rapid heart rates, captivating performances from Michelle Monaghan and Shia LaBeouf, and paranoia within the United States, you get this masterpiece. If the current Secretary of Defense were to see this movie, he or she would not want to build a creation such as ARIIA.

090110: Found this movie a slow starter. The idea of computers taking over has been done many times and this one just doesn't stand out. Found it a little too unbelievable. The computer just wouldn't be able to account for all the variables it does in the film. Stretched my imagination just a little too far. Got into it for the last 45 minutes which was good.

Eine ganz normale junge Frau und ein ganz normaler junger Mann, bekommen plötzlich einen Telefonanruf, der ihr Leben regelrecht verändert. Die Stimme an der anderen Leitung, weiss immer wo sie sich befinden und hält immer eine Lösung parat, wenn sie nur ein kleines bisschen, von den Befehlen, abgleiten. So viel zum Thema Big Brother watching You!
Sicherlich wurden solche Geschichten schon in anderen Themen und Filmen angeschnitten. Ich finde aber, dieses Konzept, jetzt bei uns in der Neuzeit, wo alle verbunden mit Satelliten und mit dem Internet sind, finde ich es beängstigend und völlig realistisch.
Die Besetzung ist gut ausgewählt. Shia LaBeouf und Michelle Monaghan spielen die verfolgten Flüchtlinge, die ja eigentlich gar nichts verbrochen haben und nur ein normales Leben führen. Billy Bob Thornton und Rosario Dawson spielen die Gesetzeshüter, die nach und nach zugeben müssen, dass die ganze Sache gewaltig stinkt.
Sicherlich gibt es auch ein paar Logiklöcher über die man wegsehen muss. Aber im Ganzen gesehen, ist es rasanter Thriller, der die Helden oder Opfer des Systems, kaum Luft zum Atmen gibt und keine Pausen einlegen dürfen. Der Schluss kommt für die ganze Sache gesehen, viel zu schnell. Es ist alles ein bisschen zu einfach dargestellt.
Fazit: Reisserischer Big Brother Thriller mit bodenständiger Besetzung. Trotz der Logik und schwache Momente dieser Geschichte, realitätsnah umgesetzt!

The duo board a military plane and arrive at Pentagon. Rosario and Anthony brief Michael that ARIA has execute a fail-safe ops to kill all the important leaders in USA when the mission to strike the terrorist at the beginning turns out to be wrong. Going by the constitution the people has the right to fight back and bring down corrupt government and that is what ARIA lives by. Shia twin knows it and lock it down. Therefore it is luring Shia civilian to unlock itself. Michael is trap in the holding room. Rosario and Anthony try to remove the hard drives to slow it down.

Michelle arrive in the conference room to hear the President speech. Her son's troupe are invited to perform for him. His trumpet has been planted a trigger which will use the frequency to blow up a crystal necklace worn by Michelle. This latest weapon was stolen by ARIA for this mission. The note is about to reach and Shia create chaos by shooting gun up the ceiling and he is shot down by guards. Michael acknowledge this failure and says intel collection is still important but must be handle carefully in order not to sacrifice heroes (Billy and Shia twin)

Saw it again after 7 years and I must say that this thriller still holds up. Although it has flaws like the lack of character development, it's still a very entertaining movie to watch. The story is smart, yes it borrows heavily from other movies, but it can do that because it has a voice of its own. The pace is perfect, action rock solid and performances by LaBeouf, Monaghan and Billy Bob Thornton all outstanding. Underrated, if you ask me.
