Eye in the Sky (15)

Drama, Thriller, War

Col. Katherine Powell, a military officer in command of an operation to capture terrorists in Kenya, sees her mission escalate when a girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute over the implications of modern warfare.

The critical consensus

It's a tight thriller played out smoothly but tying the viewer in moral knots. A film to think about for days, with little hope of finding a comfortable answer.

The result is as thought-provoking as it is nerve-shredding.

Hood’s subtle and very tense thriller boasts an imperious and fiery performance from a khaki-clad Helen Mirren.

Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 13/04/2016

A drama that forces the audience to think, take sides and examine their own consciences.

Helen Mirren and Alan Rickman star in Gavin Hood’s tense thriller exploring the ethics of drone strikes.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 17/04/2016

Adding an extra layer of emotional manipulation to an already highly charged situation, it’s a cheap shot, if annoyingly effective in the moment.
