Eagle Eye
The latest Dreamworks is a gritty crime thriller that sees Disturbia's Shia Le Beouf and D.J. Caruso reform their actor/director partnership for another outing, this time with Billy Bob Thornton and Rosario Dawson along for back up. Gone Baby Gone's Michelle Monhagan plays Rachel, who discovers her child has gone missing while Le Bouf is a twin whose brother died in mysterious circumstances. The two meet as strangers and soon realize they have been framed as terrorists and are forced into assassinating the president of the United States. Only together can they both free themselves from the nefarious forces that have come to control them and foil their terrorist activities.

As derivative/ripped off as it was (see current state of lawsuit for correct description), Disturbia was a zippy, fun teen thriller which cemented Shia LaBeouf as the fastest rising lead in Hollywood and enabled helmer D.J. Caruso to leap from TV shows to blockbuster movies. This reunion of actor and director for a techno-paranoia thriller looked all set up to be something special, then. For 45 minutes or so, it is.

It's presented as a thriller, and it is, but Eagle Eye is also a political film. It's not a very good political film, nor is it a very good thriller, ironically enough because it wants to be very good at both.

As it is, it won't be long before we'll be looking back on Eagle Eye and laughing in the same way that Sandra Bullock's badly dated The Net now raises a smile.

As the victims in Eagle Eye find out, they should have hit 'alt-ctrl-delete' a long time ago.

Questions: Did everyone involved in this botched thriller OD on speed? Does jimmy-legs director D.J. Caruso think if he slowed down the action we'd figure out how stupid the plot is?

The word preposterous is too moderate to describe Eagle Eye. This film contains not a single plausible moment after the opening sequence, and that's borderline. It's not an assault on intelligence. It's an assault on consciousness.

Highly derivative big brother thriller suffers from speed wobbles.

I'm all for a couple of hours of action-packed mindless entertainment, but Eagle Eye just had far too much of the "what the??!" factor for me to take it seriously.

I expected a generic mix of The Matrix, Enemy of the State, Wanted and Seven, which is sort of what I got, but not in the way I expected. Kind of like ordering a beer and getting it served in a glass slipper.
