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
This film's events occur in January 2009, centering around the US president's annual State of the Union address. A presidential election would've just occurred in November 2008, meaning this particular State of the Union is taking place just days after being newly inaugurated on January 20th (or, re-inaugurated, in the case of being re-elected). In years when a new president is inaugurated, the outgoing president may deliver a final State of the Union message, but none has done so since Jimmy Carter sent a written message in 1981. In 1953 and 1961, Congress received both a written State of the Union message from the outgoing president and a separate State of the Union speech by the incoming president. Since 1989, in recognition that the responsibility of reporting the State of the Union formally belongs to the president who held office during the past year, newly inaugurated Presidents have not officially called their first speech before Congress a "State of the Union" message. Since this speech is taking place mere days after an inauguration and is being called the "State of the Union", it implies that the sitting president was the one in office during the initial drone strike in Afghanistan and was also re-elected in November.

Even if vibrations from the voices on the surface of the coffee cup were large enough for ARIA to read clearly, there is the question of whether ARIA's vision is fast enough to distinguish separate vibrations. The frequency of human voice goes to 2,000 Hz and a common consumer camera samples at most 25 frames per second. If ARIA was limited in this way, the vibrations would blur together and be indistinguishable. However this assumes that the military's most advanced data gathering machine is limited to parts available in electronics super-stores. It's already established in the movie that ARIA transfers data optically from all her data banks using infrared light, which would require a IR camera with an incredibly high sampling rate - more than enough to sample vibrations from a human voice. Visual sampling of vibrations for eaves dropping is done with lasers. It is currently the only way to keep up with the vibrations. While it is true that there are cameras with a frame rate high enough that they might work, the chances that one such camera just happened to be in that room when ARIA needed it is beyond slim. Also, ARIA was looking at the cup through a window. If she could read the vibrations in the cup, she should have been able to read them in the window, and if not, whatever prevented her from reading the window would also prevent her from reading any vibrations beyond the window.

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.
