    Questions: Did everyone involved in this botched thriller OD on speed? Does jimmy-legs director D.J. Caruso think if he slowed down the action we'd figure out how stupid the plot is? show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The movie doesn't have three brain cells to rub together, but the premise carries it a long way. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    A terrorist thriller that isn't so much suspenseful as overbearing. Though it aspires to be an intriguing political cautionary tale, the movie is mostly about the feverish and jarringly choreographed chase scenes. show more

    What Eagle Eye wants to do is show us technology's dark side: all the stuff that's there to make our lives easier - ATMs, PDAs, iPods, GPS, cell phones, PCs, "smart" houses - turned against us in a vast conspiracy. show more

    See, everyone complains about humans in movies but no one does anything about it, so it fell to Eagle Eye to make everything laughably, ridiculously fake. show more

    A shrill, far-fetched thriller. show more

    Idiotic, if reasonably kinetic, Eagle Eye -- in which Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan spend the better part of two hours urgently answering phone calls and dodging hurtling machinery -- is every bit as over-edited as it is under-thunk. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    A movie only a copyright lawyer could love. It strip-mines at least three Hitchcock classics - "North by Northwest," "The Wrong Man," and "The Man Who Knew Too Much" - then commits unlawful assault on Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" just for the heck of it. show more

    Eagle Eye has half an idea in its head, but over two hours there's no time to complete or explore it, since the movie isn't just a chase but a combination steeplechase and destruction derby. show more

    Monaghan gives a solid performance, and Billy Bob Thornton has sarcastically funny bits as an FBI agent. show more

    Shia and Michelle had good chemistry and I thought this was a solidly good movie. We would watch it again. It had a lot of action and we turned captions on to catch all the dialog, which helps in loud, fast-paced movies. Spoiler: Another computer trying to control the world-type movie. Wasn't the best storyline.

    I watched this movie, and thought it was pretty good. I love action movies though I think their was good acting, and nice directing. I suggest this movie to some people who are into the government./action movies. This is a movie where you would like it then you wouldn't. I do think this movies deserves 4 starts though.

    Shia LaBeouf is a very talented actor and he is what makes Eagle Eye good entertainment.

    This movie was a fun ride right from the beginning! Shia Lebeouf and Michelle Monaghan have perfect chemistry together and play their parts perfectly. You will be entertained from all the action and from the human nature between the charactars. I have learned to not trust what the critics say because they obviously don't know a good movie when they see one. Had I listened to them I would have missed this one and August Rush which is one of my favorite movies ever.
