Eagle this eye. Bitches.

Starring: Shia LaBeouf
Michelle Monaghan
Billy Bob Thorton
Rosario Dawson
ETHAN FUCKING EMBRY

Directed by: DJ Caruso

Plot:
Jerry Shaw is an unmotivated guy who is doing nothing with his life and has no money. He’s working at Copy Mart and finds out that his twin brother, Ethan – who worked for the Air Force, is dead. After attending the funeral, Jerry’s bank account is filled with money and he comes home to an apartment filled with terrorist contraband. He receives a phone call telling him to flee the premises but doesn’t, leaving him to be arrested by the FBI. While in custody he gets another chance to escape and off he goes. At the same time, Rachel, a single mother puts her son on a train to DC to play at the Kennedy Center. She is out with friends and receives a phone call telling her to get into an unmarked car and drive or her son will die. The two come together, she picks him up and they follow the directions of a mysterious female voice on the phone. The voice is everywhere, utilizing the electronics and surveillance systems we have come to depend on as a society to track the two and help them on their way. We find out Ethan Shaw may not have been the soldier he had been claiming to be and the two struggle to stay alive while traveling across the country to find out why they have been activated.

My Take:
Ok, so I kinda had decided I didn’t REALLY want to see this but I’m super glad I did. I thought everything was perfectly explained and possible while not necessarily being plausible. The movie kept you entertained, it was second to second action, very few lulls or down points. I think it did its job and was MUCH better than I expected. Sure, an unmarked military aircraft flying through a traffic tunnel is a little unbelievable – but it could happen. Sure, Shia LaBeouf isn’t twins, but he could be! Sure, Rachel’s child looked half black but his father was blonde hair blue eyes, but it might have been from a previous marriage! Also – can you swim in Liquid Nitrogen? Cause I didn’t think so. But I guess it could be….you guessed it….POSSIBLE!

Verdict?
Only pay full price if you REALLY want to see it, otherwise snatch that shit up matinee style or netflix the crap outta it. Dont forget REDBOX DVD!
