Helen Mirren as Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from "capture" to "kill." But as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute, reaching the highest levels of US and British government, over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare. And the situation is the commander is in England,the drone pilot is in America,the terrorist is in Kenya and the authority to strike is up in the air.(original from IMDb). BTW, the director also joined the movie, as Lieutenant Colonel Ed Walsh.

My review on movie Eye in the sky

It's more a moral thriller than an action one. I wonder if the Colonel did feel something about the war, or she just desired to take this definite chance to put down the terrorists that she had been searching for years. I don't know what will happen if the leader realize that she made the man modify the data "reasonable" to order Steve to take the action. I think the Lieutenant General Frank(Alan Rickman) already knew that and he won't open it.

It's an other debate between moral and war. The woman in the office strongly opposed the drone strike. She's on the moral side. The minister that had to give the command was stuck with dilemma. The two tried best to save the little girl. But time costs,more in a war. Anyway I'll support this strike, cause the threat is obvious. They can see the terrorists equipping suicide bombs.If that happens, there'll be far more damage.BTW,the director also joined the movie, as Lieutenant Colonel Ed Walsh.

It's a serious question to all the people involved in this strike. It's an international event and the world will know what you did in this action. Usually the public will stand by the moral side. Cause they haven't ever experienced a real war. Like the General Frank answered to the woman at the end : Don't tell a soldier that he doesn't know the cost of war.
