Wow. This was so much better than expected. Maybe the third or fourth drone movie I have seen. By far the best. This is just a good good movie.

I was looking for a film to watch. Being a big Helen Mirren fan, I decided to give this one a go. What a great choice it was! The fact that the entire film is in real time, meaning we watch the event as they unfold in real time, makes it a true edge-of-the-seat stuff. Acting was nothing to brag about but the story was great. As you watch it, you keep finding yourself arguing with yourself, trying to decide what you would actually do if you were one of the characters in the film. If you’re looking for something to watch and have access to this film, don’t even think for a second and press that play button. Would I watch it again? Yes! Would I make my friends watch it? Absolutely!

A frightening look at the world of modern day warfare via the world of drone attacks. The movie is awe-inducing. So many questions come out of the ending. I'd like to see the next story, the story after this one that looks at how these characters fair in the aftermath of their decisions. Helen Mirren is excellent in her ability to play such a logical, methodical, seemingly uncaring individual.

This movie is about a moral question: can you use drones to kill terrorists even if an innocent human being will get hurt on the process?

The drones are immaterial to the question. They just happen to be the global weapon of choice to fight terrorism by some countries, such as Great Britain and More

> The modern warfare, and its advantages as well as drawbacks.

A new kind of war. When everyone is worried about robots might take over our jobs, it meant military as well. There was not robots in this, but a war fought from a safe distance and soldiers don't have to be physically trained so well More

Eye in the Sky wants to explore the question of drone warfare.

An operation to capture a terrorist cell in Kenya. Helen Mirren plays Colonel who is rather gung ho and wants to take out the bad guys before they do more harm.

Aaron Paul is a drone pilot who is dithering because of the risk to ci More
