We also get three unnecessary deleted scenes and an utterly pointless alternate ending (which sets up an improbable sequel). There's a gag reel which offers up some laughs and clearly shows the cast had a great time on set (and made plenty of mistakes), a few dozen promo and on-set stills in the photo gallery and a theatrical trailer, all rounding out the extras.
Eagle Eye is a good, solid, futuristic conspiracy thriller, with a cleverly crafted and twist-laded plot than is unravelled at just the right pace to keep the viewer in suspense and the tension up. Another decent role for the upcoming Shia LaBeouf and a few familiar faces to pad out the cast, as well as a Spielberg-esque penchant for Big Screen destruction make for plenty of action and keep you entertained throughout. On Blu-ray, this engaging romp gives you just the right material to showcase the capabilities, the video and audio presentation near-benchmark quality. Only the lacklustre extras, that come in quantity but are not particularly good quality, let the side down on what is an essential purchase in most movie fan's collections - not a classic, but a classic piece of perfect entertainment.
