Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren), a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from “capture” to “kill.” But as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute, reaching the highest levels of US and British government, over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare.

What the critics are saying:

Charlotte Observer, Lawrence Toppman

In a world full of recyclable superheroes and mindless “empowerment” comedies, we’re finally getting a movie about reality. We’re surrounded by surveillance and the threat of violence, and this film asks us to judge the proper balance between liberty and security – and the amount of collateral damage acceptable to maintain the latter.

Variety, Joe Leydon

A rivetingly suspenseful drama that deftly intertwines elements of ticking-clock thriller and tragic farce.

Tampa Bay Times, Steve Persall

Eye in the Sky remains gripping even when Hibbert tosses in one or two side-taking circumstances too many.
