Eagle Eye

Jerry and Rachel are two strangers thrown together by a mysterious phone call from a woman they have never met. Threatening their lives and family, she pushes them into a series of increasingly dangerous situations, using the technology of everyday life to track and control their every move.

This movie has a surprisingly stellar cast with Shia LeBeouf (Indiana Jones), Michelle Monaghan, Rosario Dawson, Billy Bob Thornton and Michael Chiklis.

It is a very fast paced action movie, many big stunts (reportedly not CGI) and with lots of intrigue thrown in to the mix. The plot, in this day and age of constant surveillance, I thought was perfectly plausible. We both really enjoyed this movie and were glued to it for the whole two hours.

Ack! I passed this one up last night at the video store! And I can't believe I did because I saw it in previews and thought it sounded good. Sheesh. Go glad you've given me TWO new pieces of entertainment this weekend!

Sassy - I guess the question is what did you watch instead and then I can tell you whether it was an 'ack' situation! LOL

We really enjoyed this one too! The plot was a bit far-fetched, but as you said, in this day and time it's probably more plausible than we'd like to think, LOL!

ooo..thank you for the review, Sarah.
I was curious when this was out last year so I placed it on the watch list. Looking forward to sitting down and finally watching it. :)
