Film Log: Eagle Eye

Details here.

This is really I, Robot for people who don’t like science fiction. Although the start is a bit frustrating, it’s a pretty good action film although there are few surprises and little suspense. SPOILERS: Given that the plot revolves around an attempt to assassinate the president of the US for being an irresponsible warmongerer, more liberal viewers might feel ambivalent about the protagonists’ success. The plot relies slightly on the melodic structure of the Star Spangled Banner (which it gets right) and crucially on the operation of biometric identification (which it gets wrong).
