Buy it... if workmanlike techno-thriller and chase scores of frenetic pacing and smart electronic and orchestral mixing enthrall you in even their most predictable incarnations.

Avoid it... if similar scores from the career of John Powell have never distinguished themselves from the realm of generic blockbuster noise to warrant a 75+ minute listening experience.

Tyler
Tyler
Eagle Eye: (Brian Tyler) There periodically exist films that remind seasoned movie-going veterans that mass audiences will typically fall for predictably dumb stories simply because of an intriguing premise and slick advertising. Director D.J. Caruso's Eagle Eye is exactly that kind of film, posing yet another variation on the Big Brother story involving technology that includes such varied Gene Hackman films as The Conversation and Enemy of the State. The technological advancement in the script of Eagle Eye attempt to cover for the deficiencies inherent in its haphazard movements and fallacies of logic, and while the concept of two ordinary youngsters on the run for and from unknown entities was enough to rouse a stirring response at the box office, critics saw through the rapid cuts on the editing table and exposed the film for what it is: one long, shameless excuse for a chase. What would happen, on a side note, if the everyday people in these films ignored random, strange phone calls telling them what they have to do? What if they casually ate a sandwich instead? It's the kind of production that would lend itself well to the style of composer John Powell, veteran of the The Bourne Identity films and countless other, far less impressive chase-inspired endeavors. Despite his lack of involvement in Eagle Eye, however, we still hear a score that largely resembles his typical style for this genre, courtesy of the talented, but continuously underachieving Brian Tyler. Perhaps more than any other young composer skirting the edges of A-list artistry in the industry, Tyler has spent the 2000's compiling the kind of career that frustrates with its inability to live up to the flashes of remarkable ability that he has shown in a minority of his works.
