The movie is so engrossing as an intellectual puzzle and such a solid thriller in every other department that it's probably actor-proof.
67
Good, manic fun plus a heavy dose of political intrigue adding up to two hours of clamorous, mind-numbing nonsense.

Charlotte Observer
Monaghan gives a solid performance, and Billy Bob Thornton has sarcastically funny bits as an FBI agent.

Philadelphia Inquirer
What Eagle Eye wants to do is show us technology's dark side: all the stuff that's there to make our lives easier - ATMs, PDAs, iPods, GPS, cell phones, PCs, "smart" houses - turned against us in a vast conspiracy.

The word preposterous is too moderate to describe Eagle Eye. This film contains not a single plausible moment after the opening sequence, and that's borderline. It's not an assault on intelligence. It's an assault on consciousness.

Variety
The picture's first 35 minutes sizzle until a Byzantine plot nudges the story toward near-parody in the final act.
42
A brain-squandering thriller.
40
L.A. Weekly
From tepid start to laughable middle to thudding finish (and the final two minutes smack of a reshoot), it's nothing but a herky-jerky clusterfuck of noise and nonsense.
40
A shrill, far-fetched thriller.
38
Chicago Tribune
The movie itself is hyperactive and a jumble.
