Synopsis Like Brian De Palma’s underrated REDACTED, this is a film that doesn’t want to be easily pegged....Such ambiguity is a virtue...[T]he superbly acted EYE IN THE SKY, a taut nail-biter starring Helen Mirren, the late Alan Rickman and Aaron Paul, arrives as a fully involving drama about the new rules of engagement.[A] riveting thriller about drone warfare and its perils...3 stars out of 4 -- [A] polished, often riveting thriller about an important topical issue...3 stars out of 4 -- [The filmmakers] hold us in a vise and keep squeezing. The suspense is killer as military minds in the US and the UK come together only to lock horns on a drone operation in Nairobi.A morally serious dramatization of drone warfare that also happens to be a hell of a nail-biter, Gavin Hood's EYE IN THE SKY imagines the tremendous amount of decision-making firepower required to pull a single trigger.[A] rivetingly suspenseful drama that deftly intertwines elements of ticking-clock thriller and tragic farce.[A] tough, timely drama made for adult attention spans....Mirren, her jaw set and her eyes telegraphing every moment of fury and impatience, is unsurprisingly great... -- Grade: A-4 stars out of 5 -- Hood, with fluid editing by Megan Gill, keeps the pace breakneck and doesn’t let the distance between the characters make it disjointed.[A] provocatively tense thriller that negotiates the moral minefields of its thorny subject matter in crowd-pleasing fashion.A British colonel (Helen Mirren) requests a drone strike to take out a group of terrorists in Nairobi who are planning a series of suicide bombings. However, the situation grows more complicated when an American drone pilot (Aaron Paul) discovers that a nine-year-old girl has entered the targeted area, forcing a number of military leaders and politicians to debate the best course of action. Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi, and Iain Glen co-star in this modern war drama directed by Gavin Hood, which made its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
