Eagle Eye was not a good movie. Do not spend your money to see it. It was unoriginal and about an hour to long (the run time was 118 minutes). If you want good chase scenes watch The Rock or The Dark Knight. If you want a fun cyber terrorism movie just watch Live Free or Die Hard. If you want to see Michelle Monaghan looking hot watch Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Get Panic Room or Usual Suspect for a great thriller.

The film is about two people who meet because they got mysterious phone calls from an unknown lady. The lady has the ability to hack into all electronic equipment to minipulate what she wants so she can get Jerry Shaw and Rachel Holloman where she needs them. It turns out that it is a computer that is gone bad and needs both Jerry and Rachel to carry out her operation.

The one thing I was wishing the whole film was for the evil computer to hack the film projector and shut it off.
