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>

Unoriginal but very entertaining
29 September 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

In the plot of Eagle Eye,there are elements taken from the books written by William Gibson,the video game Portal and movies like Enemy of the State,I Robot and a long etcetera.But,in spite of that,I had a very good time watching this movie.There's no doubt it's unoriginal but the movie has an enormous energy that takes possession of the spectator,so the final experience is very entertaining.The action scenes are very well filmed : they are exciting and they feel realistic.The movie has a good tone because it never stops entertaining.The actors also did a good job.Shia LaBeouf,Michelle Monaghan,Billy Bob Thornton,Michael Chiklis and Rosario Dawson bring a lot of enthusiasm to their characters.I'm usually against the lack of originality but,there are some occasions in which,that fail is redeemed with a lot of good elements.Eagle Eye is one of that cases.I can easily recommend this movie.I had a very good time watching it and it did not bore me even a second.
