London-based military intelligence officer Colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren) is remotely commanding a top secret drone operation to capture a group of dangerous terrorists in Nairobi, Kenya. When the mission suddenly escalates from a “capture” to a “kill” operation and innocent lives are put at risk, the impossible decision of whether to strike gets passed up the chain of command. With the clock ticking, the brutal realities of modern warfare play out among the military, politicians and lawyers thousands of miles away from the front line.
Also starring Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman and Barkhad Abdi, Eye in the Sky is one of the best reviewed films of the year, thrilling audiences and critics alike.

Set during the war against terror, the countries rally together to capture a known terrorist. Britain, America and Kenya agree to capture, not kill, a British citizen that is now on a terrorist 'kill' list. The action is seen through the eyes of the British (Helen Mirren and the late Alan Rickman) and via an unmanned drone, the eye in the sky of the title. When they witness the terrorists arming two suicide bombers, Mirren's character asks for the 'capture' order to be changed to a 'kill' order. You then see the wheel's of bureaucracy begin to turn as each group looks at the strike from a legal and political viewpoint. Once the order has been changed another spanner is thrown in the works when a local girl comes into the projected blast radius selling bread and the wranglings begin again. This is a super intense thriller with sterling performances from Mirren and a frustrated performance from Rickman who plays the general with his hands tied by politicians. Well worth a watch.
