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?

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.

As well as being the most preposterously plotted action flick of this or any year, Eagle Eye is a prime example of technophobia at its most hypocritical.

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?

Portentous nonsense, and loud with it.

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.

It has been shot and edited with that hectic, all-too-familiar brand of impressionistic choppiness often used by Hollywood directors to make a silly story unintelligible.

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.

The simple fact is that what starts as fast and furiously entertaining potboiler easy to roll with suddenly becomes one of the more incredulously asinine and unintentionally silly disasters I've seen all year.

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.
