Movie Review: Eagle Eye


My Rating: 4Stars

This evening I saw the movie Eagle Eye at AMC Theater, Pacific Place, Admiralty, Hong Kong.

Another highly anticipated movie from my Must See Movies list.

Another great movie with exciting special effects and spectacular stunts. The kind you expects from Die Hard franchise and more recently in Wanted. These recent movies has really raise the bar for all action movies to come.

The casting was almost perfect except for Michael Chiklis, which I just cannot rid him of his character, “Detective Vic Mackey” from The Shield. It is most likely the choice of the director, D.J. Caruso, who chose Chiklis for the Defense Secretary role.

The plot of this movie is not totally original, with The Terminator and WarGames both using the same theme. To avoid ruin the movie for my readers I will not review too much of the plot, which is reviewed half way into the movie.

Overall the dialogue is fairly weak particularly Chiklis’ character. The only memorable one was from Billy Bob Thornton where he turns to his team and say, “I hope you are all staring at me because I am the major suspect, if I don’t get some significant leads I will demote everyone of you to jobs that require direct contact of feces.”

If you enjoy action movies and a technology buff, this is definitely a movie not to miss.
