Eagle Eye (2008)
Remember that big, megalomaniac computer that Richard Prior got built for himself in Superman III? Well, here in Eagle Eye it has mated with HAL 9000 from 2001, but sadly the offspring has turned out to be an uncontrollable mutant - seemingly on crack - that best be put to sleep sooner rather than later. The director of this mess is D. J. Caruso (the other D. Caruso, if you like), and his idea of an enthralling action-film is based on the complete opposite of 'less is more'. Sure, the plot is ludicrous, but the endless, unmotivated and frenetic action is far more annoying than any bad writing. The story itself might have been interesting, had it been completely rewritten and borrowed some intelligence from somewhere. As it is, however, there's almost nothing in Eagle Eye that doesn't act as an excuse for the filmmakers to go berserk with boring action and special effects. Julianne Moore "stars" as that voice. Needless to say, she's an even worse stand-in for HAL 9000 than she was for Clarice Starling.
