Eyeborgs Blu-Ray Review

Eyeborgs Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: In the near future as fear of terrorism escalates, privacy is a luxury of the past. Now, in people's homes, on the streets, in the workplace, everyone is constantly being watched by mobile robotic cameras known as "Eyeborgs." But are the cameras just watching...or are they up to something else? As an increasing number of people die in bizarre ways, federal agent Gunner Reynolds (Adrian Paul, TV's Highlander) is determined to find out after he realizes that a camera has recorded an event much differently than he recalls.

Review: Ok, you can approach a movie like this in two ways.  I think if you're a fan of campy sci-fi you'll look at the cover of this film and be interested.  If you're into just normal films, you may be turned off by how it looks.  I want to say, don't be fooled!  This is not a crappy movie!  Thats right, its actually really, really enjoyable!  The film falls somewhere in-between V for Vendetta and Terminator.  Its an action film to be sure, but the dialogue is really high-quality.  I was impressed.

Adrian Paul (of TV's Highlander fame) pulled out a really great performance.  He hasn't done much to speak of since Highlander, but I loved that show.  He really put in the effort here and exceeded by expectations.  The film has a great political message about our privacy as a backdrop, but its not too preachy.  Its fun and definately worth owning.

Due to the surprisingly great special effects for a lower budget film, you'll want this one on blu-ray.  The high-definition picture is fantastic!

Interest Range: Sci-Fi, Action/Adventure
