Eye in the Sky

War Thriller


 

A military operation to capture terrorists in Kenya comes under question when the request for a drone strike to bomb the target causes a heated debate across government factions.

"Eye in the Sky" might be divisive in nature, but the thrills and tension it provides are unquestionable. Although lacking certain subtleties, it incisively poses the question: "What is an acceptable cost of life to kill a terrorist?" The conundrum is debated with great vigour from the superb global cast, creating a captivating drama. Favouring back-room politics over guns and explosions, this film successfully reveals how modern warfare is controlled by static soldiers behind computer screens. Eye for suspense.
