I called it; as soon as I saw the Eagle Eye trailer, I knew we had another 'AI gone rampant' movie on our hands.

An AI which, in fact, looks and sounds a LOT like GLaDOS sometimes.

However, that's not to dismiss the movie as bad or entirely derivative. It probably is both those things, at least to a certain extent, but it  has some saving graces to it. There are nuances to the plot that---gasp---make sense. The motivation of the AI is both more interesting than "gone insane" and is foreshadowed. The ending is actually interesting, though there are a few aspects I think they did wrong.

My primary gripe with the rest of the movie is simply that the lead FBI agent is sometimes more stupid than badass; actually, he was the weakest character in many ways. I think the problem was more on the writing/directing end, rather than the acting, but I sometimes winced at his delivery.

I suppose there were also a few events that felt too coincidence-heavy/disjointed from the reality of the movie, but they were relatively few; overall, a surprisingly good movie with an ending-message I'm happy to see :-)
Blessed be,
