A smart politically-charged thriller that wraps you in
the moral dilemma of remote-controlled warfare
Eye in the Sky
2016, Drama, 103 minutes. Directed by Gavin Hood. Written by Guy Hibbert. Rated R for violence, language, and emotional intensity.
Eye in the Sky is an intense dramatic-thriller that captures the ethical dilemma at the heart of drone warfare. The ensemble scene is set in a command center, where pilots guide war drones by remote control, attacking suspected terrorists thousands of miles away.
On this day, a long-sought terrorist is in the crosshairs on the computer screen when a young girl wanders into the kill zone. An international dispute develops over what to do next. The nail-biting events that follow pit a bit of compassion against military action. Oscar winner, Helen Mirren, and Alan Rickman, who we continue to miss, are excellent as British military officers trying to eliminate terrorists. Aaron Paul plays the U.S. drone pilot assigned to carry out the killing mission.
The film is a disturbing peek behind the curtain that separates the public from the reality of today’s warfare. You, the viewer, is left wondering what you would do if you were there—and how you would live with it for the rest of your life.
