About the Movie
Eye in the Sky stars Helen Mirren as Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer in command of a top-secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from “capture” to “kill.” But as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone, triggering an international dispute reaching the highest levels of US and British government over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's a lean, Lumet-like thriller that puts the moral calculus of drone warfare in its crosshairs.
Fresh: Eye in the Sky is compelling, offering the best elements of a drama and a thriller.
Fresh: Eye in the Sky is disturbing, but it's also balanced and ambivalent about what is right.
Fresh: Hood keeps the action tense throughout this nail-biter, which unfolds like a taut stage play. It offers no easy answers, only difficult questions about following orders and the cost of war.
The best movie I have seen
The story of the movie is amazing
Believability is an issue
I love Helen Mirren in the story: there is no one better. The problem I have with the screenplay is sincerity/believability: on scale from 1-5 (with 5 being the highest), I would give it a "3" because I don't believe two neophytes (with their emotional temperament (after rigorous personality testing) would find themselves in their current position.🙄
My all-time favorite movie
It's a very realistic movie about modern day war, 100% recommended
