Eagle Eye

Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan star in Disturbia director D.J. Caruso's race-against-time thriller concerning two strangers thrust together by a mysterious telephone call, and their frantic efforts to discover why they have inexplicably become the nation's most wanted fugitives. Jerry Shaw (LaBeouf) and Rachel Holloman (Monaghan) were complete strangers at the beginning of the day, but that changed the instant a strange woman called to threaten both their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Suddenly forced into a series of increasingly dangerous situations, Jerry and Rachel must now take orders from a woman who's using everyday technology to track and control their every move. As the situation intensifies and the hapless duo are deemed the country's most wanted fugitives, they must work together in order to discover who it was that turned their lives upside down, and what they can do to thwart the criminal mastermind's cunning yet diabolical plan. Billy Bob Thornton, Rosario Dawson, Michael Chiklis, and Anthony Mackie co-star.

This was on TV & we decided to watch it & ended up getting sucked in pretty quickly. It was fast paced and I never felt like that plot line was dragging which some movies tend to do these days. It was always moving onto the next item of business and kept you waiting for more. While Jason enjoyed the movie he also thought it was unrealistic in parts which ruined it for him. I tend to suspend reality when watching movies and just enjoy the plot line. I thought this was one of Shia's better movies - I had only seen him in Transformers and couldn't finish watching the movie it was so bad. I loved how quickly the plot came together and we figured out what was going on instead of waiting two hours for the rush at the very end to explain it all and then end. Great movie! Four out of fives stars.
