Eagle Eye - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Eagle Eye is a race-against-time thriller starring Shia LaBeouf, Michelle Monaghan, Rosario Dawson, Anthony Mackie and Billy Bob Thornton. Jerry Shaw (LaBeouf) and Rachel Holloman (Monaghan) are two strangers thrown together by a mysterious phone call from a woman they have never met. Threatening their lives and family, she pushes Jerry and Rachel into a series of increasingly dangerous situations – using the technology of everyday life to track and control their every move. As the situation escalates, these two ordinary people become the country's most wanted fugitives, who must work together to discover what is really happening – and more importantly, why.
Eagle Eye, director D.J. Caruso’s follow up to the successful Disturbia, delivers on most of the promise seen in its entertaining, but overplayed trailer. A cross between The Game and 2001: A Space Odyssey (in concept, not execution), the film unravels at a fast pace as the prolific Shia LeBeouf and the sexy Michelle Monaghan become increasingly entwined in a deadly game neither of them can win. Strong supporting performances by Billy Bob Thornton, Rosario Dawson and the Shield’s Michael Chiklis help ground the plot, which at times, despite being consistently exciting, is a bit ludicrous.
