The US government has developed a new super-computer which will record and collect data from every microphone and every camera in the country. It gauges human behaviour and emotions and by using a complex algorithm, can predict the outcome of events. The project is known as Eagle Eye and the computer is called ARIIA. Jerry Shaw (LaBeouf) a good for nothing college dropout, who starts getting anonymous calls from a woman who asks him to do bizzare things. She manages to break him out of FBI custody and seems to know exactly where he is and what he is doing. Rachel Halloman (Monaghan) too faces a similar situation such as Jerry's and they soon realise that ARIIA is behind all of this but they are not sure why. They both get a very bad feeling that this has something to do with the recent death of Ethan Shaw (LaBeouf) Jerry's twin brother who worked in the US Air Force. Loads of movies have come and gone where super-computers were the backbone of national security and their complex algorithms have left loopholes which have put the entire country in a jeopardy. Its a genre where you expect destructive entertainment and nothing more. The movie has a good plot which was well explored and leaves a good twist towards the end. Sit back, relax, watch some cars and buildings blow up and go home. That's what it is all about.
Thumbs up: Decent plot for a movie of its kind.
Thumbs down: Needs a highly-destructive action sequence
