Films for planes review of "Eye in the Sky"

Eye in the Sky ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️

I think more war films will be like this in the future: people in bunkers controlling drones, at least until the AI takes over. Basically the story is about a drone strike on terrorists in Kenya, and whether and when to pull the trigger. This is an ideal movie for a plane. 100 minutes long, just right for drinks, dinner and relaxing. Genuinely interesting story line and you don’t know how it’s going to turn out. Good actors, script with tension and thought-provoking without being too preachy.

It’s also Alan Rickman’s last film and he’s very good in it.

I didn’t buy the mini-drone but hey, it’s a film right.

Rating System

In case you’d forgotten, I use a five sun rating system. It works like this:

  1. Movie gets one sun for interesting story with good acting

  2. Movie gets one sun for not having an English villain

  3. Movie gets one sun for not being too dark or having lots of special effects, so you can enjoy it properly on an airplane screen

  4. Movie gets one sun if I watched all the way to the end without falling asleep or turning over because I was bored

  5. Movie gets one sun if it doesn’t have Kate Winslet in it

So any movie I watch on a place gets at least one sun, and if they pull out all the stops they can get five.
