Eye in the sky: my review

I saw this movie called ‘Eye in the Sky’ with my boyfriend a few days ago. I thought that it was a good movie to watch because of the IMDB rating of 7.4 and the synopses was:

Col. Katherine Powell, a military officer in command of an operation to capture terrorists in Kenya, sees her mission escalate when a girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute over the implications of modern warfare.

My thoughts on the movie

Warning: may contain spoilers;

It’s a cheap movie, not in low quality, because it’s very good quality, but it doesn’t have very scenarios, nor actors The creators might have spent some money on filming on other countries and the dressing up.

If you are looking for a war movie with a lot of action and special effects, this is not the movie for you. It might be boring for most people. It is very slow and frustrating.

But this is what makes it interesting: It is a controversial movie.

The movie is all about these questions:

  1. Is one life worth killing to save many others?
  2. What if that life is of a child?
  3. Would you take the blame for killing it?
  4. Would you take the blame for NOT killing it?

This movie show the political interests and laws to apply in this cases. And the funny thing is that also shows how the media would see their decision.
It shows the people that are all day sittin in their chairs, getting fat, having a ‘bad day at work’, having to make a decision that could make them fired, instead of thinking the same way that all the other people that been to war, knowing what is the right decision.
For those people, they think that is all a movie, watching in their television, hoping it all ends by itself without them tacking any action, they just one the day to be over and go home to their lives like nothing ever happened, that’s not right.

Then there’s the guy who pulls the trigger for the first time, his conscience, that has nothing to care about his career. Should he follow the orders?
And the guy who is corrupted but doesn’t want to be blamed.

If you decide to watch the movie, I advise you to watch it thinking about those questions, and see how it rolls.

My name is Daniela and I kick and bite.
