Storyline

Jerry Shaw is an amiable slacker with an over-achieving twin brother. After his twin dies in an accident, strange things happen to Jerry at a dizzying pace: a fortune shows up in his bank account, weapons are delivered to his flat, and a voice on his cell phone tells him the police are on their way. Jerry follows the voice's instructions, and soon he and a woman he's never met are racing through the city, on to a plane, and eventually to the Pentagon, chased by the FBI. She is Rachel Holloman, a single mom; the voice has threatened her son's death if she doesn't cooperate. The voice seems to know everything. Who is behind it, what is being planned, and why Jerry and Rachel? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When Aria is pulling up Jerry's brothers information, you can see his military I.D. is all wrong. The I.D. says he is an E-8 (SMSGT) when the brother is supposed to be a 1st LT. The I.D. should show no pay grade (they do this since you promote from 2nd to 1st LT faster than the other officer ranks). It takes around 15 years to make it to E-8 and he is way too young for that rank. Also he is an officer not enlisted. If you are military you will notice a few more things missing. See more »

Not the greatest but at least it was fun
28 September 2008 | by (Waukee, IA) – See all my reviews

Eagle Eye is not the best movie I've ever seen but it's much better than some of the other junk that been out lately. Yes, it copies almost every recent political thriller and yes it rips off some other movies too, but don't most movies recently do the same. The action was good and the main characters at least were made to be real people that you could connect with. And Billy Bob Thornton was having so much fun and was at his best since Armageddon. This movie proves again that Shia LeBeouf has some talent, too bad he can't seem to stay off the tabloids. Michelle Monaghan also was very good. Unlike some of the critics I thought the ending was quite noble. 8/10
