Consensus: Eagle Eye is a preposterously plotted thriller that borrows heavily from other superior films.

Christine Champ

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.

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.

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

Did everyone involved in this botched thriller OD on speed?

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.

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.

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.

Really stupid and impossible. Way over the top. This also has a pretty bad and completely implausable ending. It is entertaining at parts though. It was okay.… More

A very well crafted thriller! It is most definitely not the best thriller I have ever seen, but as a film that literally came out of nowhere and just wanted to… More

Decent Shia Laboeuf. Nothing reinvented in this. Some good scenes are spoiled by some other awful moments.
