Storyline

Are government surveillance cameras intended to keep us safe actually killing people? Is it a plot by the government to suppress the opposition, or have our terrorist enemies secretly gained control of our security system and are now using it against us? Following another major terrorist attack the US instigates an intense government surveillance program in which every camera in the country is linked into a single, all-seeing network called the ODIN system (for Optical Defense Intelligence Network). The system includes millions of mobile, robotic surveillance cameras known as "Eyeborgs," which watch everyone for suspicious behavior, all in the name of security, law enforcement and keeping America safe. An agent for the Department of Homeland Security grows suspicious of the system after a series of odd murders in which the physical evidence doesn't match up to what the video records show. Now he must work outside the system to find out who is really controlling the Eyeborgs. With the ... Written by RS

Goofs

At around 35:30, Jarett is walking down a road while being watched by an eyeborg. On the right side, his speed is stated with 0,7 kilometers per hour. This speed shown is obviously wrong, he is walking normally fast. The average speed of a walking human is about 3,6 kph, approximately five times higher. See more »

Low-budget execution of a good concept

With a name like "Eyeborgs", you know it has to either be really bad or really funny. And this movie isn't funny.

There are some redeeming qualities here though. You'll see in the end that it's a pretty original idea; it just suffers from mediocre execution, likely due to its low budget, which is a real shame. With a larger budget it could've been something of a ground-breaker.

As much as the title might otherwise imply, this is by all indications meant to be a serious, dramatic sci-fi thriller. Far from polished, the script was only "eh", and the fight choreography was worse, especially when the robots and humans fought hand-to-hand. The placement of CGI within real-world shots was generally not too believable, but that's somewhat understandable considering the budget. The 3D modeling and animation themselves, though, were probably the film's strongest elements. The little camera robots are cute, like tiny robotic gremlins going around killing people, with distinct and consistent personalities.

Unfortunately, the first hour or so of this isn't that absorbing. The concept itself is good though, and you won't fully appreciate it unless you sit through the entire movie to find out the real deal. The last 20 minutes are when things pick up and I actually felt absorbed by the movie, and I dare say, it may actually end up leaving you with something to think about.
