Watch Eye in the Sky
- 1 hr 42 min
Eye in the Sky takes its inspiration from current affairs and the latest news headlines. The film, which stars Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul and Alan Rickman, examines the use of drone warfare and its moral and political implications. The movie falls under the political thriller genre. Mirren plays Colonel Katherine Powell, who is supervising a mission to seize and detain terrorists from a safe house in Kenya. Aaron Paul plays a U.S. pilot who is controlling a drone that is providing visual evidence on the terrorists. When Powell's embedded agents on the ground provide clues about an imminent attack, she decides that her mission requires a more extreme action -- the safe house must be destroyed. Her decision sets into motion a series of decisions in the chain of command that extends from the field agents all the way up to the British foreign secretary and the U.S. Secretary of State.
