Watched Eagle Eye (2008). It tells the story of loser Jerry (Shia LaBeef Bourguignon), who is setup by an unknown force and finds his apartment filled with weapons and bombmaking equipment, and is in turn arrested for being a terrorist. He manages to escape with the assistance of an unknown woman, and connects up with Rachel (Michelle Monaghan... she got a weird face!) who is also under similar control from the unknown woman. Jerry and Rachel then have to complete a sequence of tasks, whilst being pursued by various government forces, and so the story unfolds. Eagle Eye feels a little like a Bruckheimer produced film, with the strident soundtrack and action sequences. There is a modicum more story though, although the film never got very exciting for me. Shia LaBeef is not particularly great, as per usual, and Michelle Monaghan is also fairly wooden - both of them seeming to pull an endless set of angst ridden faces. Recommended for fans of slightly intelligent actions films, and if you've got 118 minutes to kill. 3/5 (Average)

I thought Eagle Eye was a fantastic premise but it ended up being such a run of the mill bollocky "Quick we're running out of film, time and budget! Think of an ending" ending.

I thought the ending was pretty much a given because of all the setup. You could have guessed that the computer would get destroyed, good guys win, happy ever after!
