Eye in the Sky

7.3 HD 2015 102 min
Working with her American counterparts and the Kenyan military, British Colonel Katherine Powell (Dame Helen Mirren) is about to launch an operation that, if successful, will lead to the capture of the Number 2, 3, and 5 terrorists on the American list of most wanted terrorists in East Africa. Amongst the group they hope to arrest are British nationals Susan Helen Danford, now known as Ayesha Al-Hady (Lex King), her husband, and a recently radicalized young man who just arrived from the U.K. There is also a radicalized American in the group. Her plan to capture the group goes awry when they suddenly decamp to a new location and Powell wants to move to Plan B: a kill mission. The result is a debate amongst those in charge - in London, there is Powell's commanding officer Lieutenant General Frank Benson (Alan Rickman), a junior minister and the British Attorney General; the British Foreign Secretary is at a trade conference; and the U.S. Secretary of State is in China - on whether they can proceed. From somewhere in the U.S. Midwest, Lieutenant Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is flying the U.S. drone in the sky above Nairobi, and is the man who will ultimately pull the trigger if the kill mission is approved. Complicating matters, however, is the sudden appearance in the "kill zone" of a young girl selling bread. Do they proceed knowing there will be collateral damage?
