Stars: 5 out of 5
‘Eye in the Sky’ ranks above ‘Zootopia’ as this year’s best film by far. Alan Rickman (who has played Hans Gruber in the first ‘Die Hard’ and Severus Snape in the ‘Harry Potter’ series) has been gone for months and his soul will live on through this political surveillance-thriller named ‘Eye in the Sky;’ directed by Gavin Hood. I felt tension as I was sitting in a small independent theater for almost two hours where I was immediately hooked during the 20-30 minute mark. I have to give praise to ‘Eye in the Sky’ for the feeling of suspense in similar vein to films such as Clint Eastwood’s war-biopic ‘American Sniper’ and Sidney Lumet’s courtroom drama ‘12 Angry Men’.
