Movie Alert: Eye in the Sky

eye-in-the-skyEYE IN THE SKY – WOW! I was on the edge of seat for the entire film.  A fantastic screenplay combined with incredible direction by Gavin Hood to explore drone warfare up close and personal.  You are involved from the first moment of the film and the acting is brilliant.  Helen Mirren is a standout as always as the American military Colonel anxious to reach her target and complete her assignment.  Today’s military technology removes the actual soldier from the warzone which has its distinct advantages and disadvantages.  This is a film not to be missed. I know Helen was particularly excited about this role and I can see why.
