"Eagle Eye" is an average action film with nothing new to thrill a viewer.
The story is a little confusing and frankly, a bit dumb. A new machine, which is meant to be a sophisticated spy camera, has gone mad. It wants to take over the world with the help of who? Shia LaBeouf! Why Shia? Because Shia's twin brother who worked with the machine had died and the machine needs Shia's imprint to gain access to continue its destruction.
It was a ridiculous story. The action wasn't thrilling and the acting was mediocre. Even though there were some good actors in the picture, such as Billy Bob Thornton, Rosario Dawson and Michael Chiklis, the story just did not work. Billy Bob was good in his role and I actually liked his character. Besides Billy Bob, each and every character oozed of boredom.
This was a film that tried to be a smart science fiction type thriller, but it just comes up short on all accounts.
