Overview and Review of Eagle Eye directed by D.J. Caruso.

Jerry (Shia LaBeouf) and Rachel(Michelle Monaghan) are two strangers thrown together by a mysterious phone call from a woman they have never met. Threatening their lives and family through a series of blackmails, she pushes Jerry and Rachel into a series of increasingly dangerous situations, using the technology of everyday life (cellphone, nearby phone booths, cellphones of other people, electronic billboards and more) to track and control their every move.

Rachel Holloman: Do you think they could derail a train?

Jerry Shaw: They changed every traffic light to get us here. The woman, she called me on a stranger's cell phone who happened to be sitting next to me - never met the guy in my life. And then they broke me out of maximum security custody in a way I'm not even going to describe to you because it sounds crazy, and then they lift us off the face of the earth and drop us into this shitpile. She could probably derail a train, she could probably turn a train into a talking duck.

This is a "you can run but you can't hide" situation and another of those "what if's". Although the plot may sound unrealistic but it sure is one great entertaining movie what with Shia spearheading the lead. It's smart and it has this near relation to "I-Robot". Yes, kinda I-robot-ish. So there goes the originality on this one... but it's different all on its own. But, I enjoyed every bit of the movie, it has this intensity which can give you the edge. So, I'm giving it credit. It's also one case of where "technology" can go wrong even though how sophisticated that technology is. CGI is great. Actors did a great job.

Just watch it.
