I thought this movie looked downright silly. I'm probably going to skip it.

Though a small part of me is interested in seeing it just because Steven Spielberg came up with the idea for the film.

Seriously? I thought it was awesome. The acting-awesome, the action-awesome, the storyline-awesome, and the suspense-awesome. I can't believe the movie got bad ratings. Very surprising. I really did love the movie.

4 THUMBS UP!!!

You do have 4 hands, the 2 extra are your feet. Your big toe is an anomtical/biological equiviant to your thumb. Unfortunatly it doesn't function like one, so we can't enjoy the pleasure of using our feet like our hands like other primates can.

So why didn't you like the movie?

There are a few skilled people who can use their feet for almost everything they use their hands for, but I'm not quite that talented.  I can do a few things with them though.  Yay me!

I'll use Roger Ebert as my spokesperson:

The word preposterous is too moderate to describe "Eagle Eye." This film contains not a single plausible moment after the opening sequence, and that's borderline. It's not an assault on intelligence. It's an assault on consciousness.

This whole movie is a feature-length
deus ex machina, and if you don't know what that is, look it up, because you're going to need it to discuss "Eagle Eye." Let me explain. If you're looking for a narrative that makes much sense, "Eagle Eye" lacks one. It's essentially a lot of CGI and stunt work, all stuck together in a row. The movie obviously intends to resemble and inspire a video game, and at that it is slick. I look forward to film students using their clickers to work out the average shot length. I'm predicting less than three seconds.

I like that last bit about film students, very true.  Still haven't seen the movie, am on the edge about whether or not to see it.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

The movie is suppost to have little to no CGI effects.
