Watch it if you're an Alan Rickman fan and do not wish to miss out on his last appearance on the big screen. But although the movie is tension filled war themed, there is so much cross talk about right and wrong and politics, that you want to snatch the controls from the hands of a weepy soldier and press the send button on the missile yourself.

Eye In The Sky Review RatingManisha Lakhe (Nowrunning) | Read Full Review

The soul of Eye in the Sky, the new film by Gavin Hood, is another girl in red - and even though decades have passed since Schindler's List, we find that not much has changed. The world is still at war. It never stopped. Eye in the Sky is a passionately anti-war film that wisely chooses not to focus its target on one particular war. The entire movie plays out in one extended scene.

Eye In The Sky Review RatingRohan Naahar (Hindustan Times) | Read Full Review

"Eye in the Sky," directed by Gavin Hood ("Tsotsi") is a grim, suspenseful farce in which unpredictable human behavior repeatedly threatens an operation of astounding technological sophistication.General Benson is Mr. Rickman's final screen performance, and it is a great one, suffused with a dyspeptic world-weary understanding of war and human nature. Sharper, better made and better acted, "Eye in the Sky," doesn't present as overtly critical a view of drone warfare.

Eye in the Sky asks a provocative question: Does conscience still figure in modern warfare? Rickman, in his last onscreen role, takes on the issue with the brilliance and bracing humanity that marked his career. It's a setup for a moral debate on drone warfare. That Eye in the Sky is nowhere near that dry and academic is a tribute to director Gavin Hood (Tsotsi), who uses a tight script to hold us in a vise and keep squeezing.

So you may well learn something while watching the film. Not just because there are few films these days that possess as much intellect and purpose as this one, but because it also offers what you originally go to the movies for - fun.
