Eagle Eye starring Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan, is a movie about a young man named Jerry Shaw and a divorced mother Rachel Holloman.
They are threatened into following a female voice on a cell phone to carry out several events in the hopes to assassinate a politician. This super intelligent computer can control everything from traffic lights, planes, cell phones, cameras, and even marquee signs. In the frantic race to please the female voice Jerry and Rachel do everything they can to appease her and to find out who is behind the assassination attempt.
The beginning of the film was slow and a bit boring but the action picked up pretty quickly. Breaking glass, loud sirens, and flashing lights are the down fall of the movie. In the middle of the film it was very loud and confusing and hard to decipher who was where and what was happening. This film may lack thrill but it doesn’t give on suspense and mystery. Through every scene you are curious about what will happen next and where it’s going to lead Jerry and Rachel.
In my opinion Shia LaBeouf really stepped up from the original Disney Channel kiddy movies. His performance was not only good but very believable. Michelle Monaghan’s performance was exactly how I think a mother would act if there child was in danger. She showed compassion and bravery in order to save her son’s life.
I would rate this movie a 4 (on a scale of 1 to 5) because I really enjoyed watching this movie. Some adults may not find this movie appealing but as far as teenagers go I think they will really enjoy this film. All actors involved in this film gave a really good performance although it could have used a little bit more action. Well worth the money.
