Eagle Eye Starring Shia LaBeouf & Michelle Monaghan Drops on DVD & Blu-Ray Today!!
Eagle Eye the sleeper thriller for the summer did incredibly well — obviously enough to drop the movie 3 days early (typically on Tuesday drops) on Sunday– today.
This thriller stars Michelle Monaghan and Shia LaBeouf (from Disturbia — reviewed here on this site) and directed by the same person who helmed Disturbia.
This is one of those “not quite smart enough plot” movies but definitely addictive because of the chemistry and action-packed scenes that keeps you glued to the screen. The basic premise — and questions — surrounding this story never quite get answered– at least not along the way– and the pace is full-throttle thanks to director DJ Caruso.
There are other stellar performers (note that I didn’t say performances) in this movie which includes Rosario Dawson and Billy Bob Thornton. The theme sounds good, the execution needs more depth and let’s focus less on the stunts and more on the plot-line.
However that won’t stop anyone from wanting to see this because I loved Disturbia and would have paid to see Eagle Eye at the time it was out if it hadn’t been overshadowed by other movies I wanted to see.
Own Eagle Eye on single DVD, double DVD set with extras galore and also on Blu-Ray which would make everything worthwhile if I had a Blu-Ray player to even check out the exceptional extras.
There isn’t much to review because I never saw the movie in a theater– there were too many other dvds and movies for me to cover. I signed up to get a copy to review and while I *thought* I was going to get a copy, as in the last 3-5 movies that I signed up for, I never received a DVD to review. Makes it hard to tell you what I really think other than about the trailers and what others have said to me about the movie.
It’s worth renting from Netflix. Buy it at your usual places or via Amazon.com
