Eavesdropper is an interested film compromised mostly of a C list cast, but its definitely worth checking out.
A well executed formula movie. At one time we were innovated by movies where a secret formula, or radiation, or LSD experiments create a superset of senses. And of course the experiment hast to be covered up. The main experimentee is usually more moral than the experimenter. Others, usually the government, want to use the abilities for their own nefarious purposes.
So the story is not unique however the acting and details are exceptionally good. You can tell that this is a pilot and it makes you wonder who will survive to make the program.
For sci-fi lovers you may recognize George Takei (Sulu on Star Trek), and John de Lancie (Q on Star Trek: Voyager), together again.
The only thing missing would be the mystique of a missing film maker. Shads of Aimee Semple McPherson.
I was intrigued with the idea of the entire movie, how people react when their own thoughts can be read, and how someone's entire life can be altered by allowing them to finally hear after a lifetime of being deaf. Give it a watch, it's worth it.
They tried to restore hearing and got more than that a 'mind reader' the only thing no more like her could be developed. She was a civilian treated like a 'thing' not a person and she fought back when they though she could be killed off when a military officer had her ability, but she fought back. She won and the military lost her because any 'mind reader' has a weapon and it sometimes is 'lethal'. They are watching but a mistep in their part would be a disaster since she left the Project: Hidden Lines by her own will.
In the DVD they said it could lead to a TV series sooner or later. Lets hope sooner.
It is always worse when people mess with the handicapped, since they are viewed as "easy targets." I think that is why it is so intense. I don't know. I really enjoyed this movie. It got my heart racing, which a movie hasn't done in a while.
