What if someone was watching you? What if they could control your world and even kill you? What if they told you to kill someone else? Would you?

Jerry Shaw (Shia LaBeouf) is just your average 20-something year old working at a copy store, just barely making rent. One day he comes home to find his apartment full of weapons and explosives. He immediately receives a phone call from a woman he's never met before who tells him he has thirty seconds to escape from his apartment before the FBI arrive to arrest him for terrorism. He doesn't believe her, but sure enough the FBI break into his apartment moments later and arrest him. But the strange woman arranges his escape from the FBI's custody too, and he meets up with single mother Rachel Holloman (Michelle Monaghan) who is forced to help by the same strange woman because she threatened to kill Rachel's son. The strange woman tracks their every move using technology of everyday life such as cell phones, digital street signs, etc.

"Eagle Eye" was written by John Glenn and Travis Wright and directed by D.J. Caruso who has also directed the film "Disturbia," which Shia LaBeouf also starred in.

This film is filled with special effects and crazy action scenes from beginning to end. My favorite has got to be the insane chase scenes where the strange woman controls traffic signals and digital construction signs and just everything so that Jerry and Rachel can escape without the cops or the FBI getting in their way.

This movie is perfect. It is definitely in my top ten favorites of all time. I'm a sucker for the futuristic, fast action, what-the-heck-is-going-on?, hi-tech type of movie. And that's exactly what this film is. I absolutely loved it.
