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.

It's going to make you want to take the batteries out of your cell phone.

An intelligent nail biter.

What's galling about Eagle Eye is that it could easily have been an entertaining film without constantly yielding to the impulse to blow stuff up.

Did everyone involved in this botched thriller OD on speed?
October 17, 2008
But there's also a puppy-dog doesn't-know-any-better enthusiasm to this pacy fluff which means you can't get that worked up at it.

don't have the willpower, words, or energy to explain why a psychopathic CIA computer suddenly decides to take over the world. But that's the plot in a nutcase.

Some nonsense is fun, but this wears you down.

But do we care? This is a disastrous mess.

Eagle Eye churns and flails and piles on pointless and improbable complications.

The scriptwriters are setting a trap, but there's a risk. If they push the capabilities of the unseen female voice too far -- and they do -- they risk our patience. Once you withdraw your willingness to believe, it's hard to get it back.

Eagle Eye feels less like a vehicle for an action hero than the latest in a series of national focus groups to determine LaBeouf's commercial viability.
September 26, 2008
Eagle Eye, with a more nuanced idea of paranoia and the ills of technology gone wild, could have been both entertaining and disturbing. Deafening isn't quite the same thing.

It all wears very thin by the third act, when The Voice really starts to grate and all remaining sense slams into a brick wall.
September 26, 2008
The chase eventually wears thin, and Eagle Eye eventually strangles its actors in the threads of its plot.
September 26, 2008
The movie doesn't have three brain cells to rub together, but the premise carries it a long way.
September 26, 2008
At the very least, Eagle Eye gives us two principals who are appealing enough to keep us interested in them.
September 26, 2008
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.
September 26, 2008
Eagle Eye should boast all sorts of contemporary resonance. But it'd probably feel just a little bit timelier and more relevant if it took place in a universe that bore even the faintest resemblance to our own.
