Movie Review: Eagle Eye

Genre: Action & Adventure

Jerry Shaw (Shia LaBeouf) and Rachel Holloman (Michelle Monaghan)
embarks on an atypical journey that they will never forget for the rest of their lives. Armed with only nothing, they had to follow the mysterious voice’s command or else they’ll suffer unscrupulous and irrevocable consequences.

I vacillated to watch this movie in the cinema since I thought this is just an ordinary action movie. And I already knew Shia since he’s the lead actor of the infamous Nickelodeon series Even Stevens. Since Disturbia, he had played numerous matured roles and I think he acted well in those movies, including Transformers. I’m not an avid fan of action movies, but this has to be the best action movie of the year! I know the technology smart computers that can detect even the most minuscule details of your life would be implausible as of this year, but it can be possible. Right now, the US government had devised a secret mission to track phone calls from different people. In this way, they can track terrorist lurking in their country.

But privacy plays a vital role in this movie.

Special effects as well as the sound effects in this movie were stunningly great and I can’t imagine those crushed cars in the highway. Technologies in this movie were also great. The plot didn’t bore me to death.

This flick is highly recommended to action movie enthusiasts. Even if I’m not a fan of this kind of genre, I still enjoyed this movie, A LOT.

Five stars for this flick.
