I saw this trailer with my husband and the first thing he said was “It’s like ‘Phone Booth’ but with a cell phone.” It’s true the premise borderlines on being a bit cliche, but the last time Shia LaBeouf, director D.J. Caruso and executive producer Steven Spielberg worked together on the sleeper hit “Disturbia” things turned out alright.
In “Eagle Eye,” Jerry Shaw (LaBeouf) and Rachel Holloman (Michelle Monaghan) are two strangers thrown together by a mysterious phone call from a woman they have never met. Threatening their lives and their family, she pushes Jerry and Rachel into a series of increasingly dangerous situations using the technology of everyday life to track and control their every move. As the situation escalates, these two ordinary people become the country’s most wanted fugitives, who must now work together to discover what is really happening. Fighting for their lives, they become pawns of a faceless enemy who seems to have limitless power to manipulate everything they do.
