Watched Eagle Eye recently. The movie looks at how everyday technology can be used in an nightmare scenario to track your every move. The movie follows Jerry Shaw (Shia LaBeouf) and Rachel Holloman (Michelle Monaghan) who are forced to follow orders by a mysterious voice on the phone, all the while being tracked by traffic cameras, cell phone signals and other everyday equipment we take for granted. Their goal seems to be part of a terrorist plot to eliminate the chain of command in the US. Later on it is revealed that the voice is in fact the computer “eagle eye”, acting on its interpretation of its programmed goals. This was the most pleasant surprise for me, because I kind of expected the usual terrorists-vs-lone-hero kind of movie. The AI computer bought a nice sci-fi touch to the entire movie. The construction and motivation of the “Eagle eye” AI, Ariia is reminiscent of HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey. I found that aspect the most interesting in the movie. Overall its a decent one time watch.
