It's sometime in the unspecified future and Homeland Security has expanded. Dramatically. All surveillance cameras (public and private) have been linked together into a single "anti-terrorist" surveillance system under the "Freedom of Observation" Act, a follow-up to the Patriot Act. This surveillance has been greatly enhanced by the creation of mobile observation bots (the eyeborgs), which are ubiquitous. They aren't SUPPOSED to enter private property without a search warrant--but for law enforcement and Homeland Security officials, getting a search warrant is as automated, and takes about as long, as it takes you to make a small-item purchase by swiping your credit card. These eyeborg surveillance bots come in a variety of sizes, shapes (and functionalities). In this environment the story line is told via a purple-haired heavy-metal rocker who happens to be the nephew of the President, some DHS agents, a female newscaster for the major TV network, and some lesser characters. The eyeborgs are out of control. They don't just survey, they have weapons, too. (Why haven't people noticed this yet?) There seems to be some kind of plot-to blow up the President? And who is controlling these out of control eyeborgs? Is it the President? The Vice-President? Someone unidentified in the vast security network that's been created? Some anti-technology, anti-surveillance underground movement? Foreign terrorists?Read more ›
However, EYEBORGS jumps right into the fray with all kinds of things happening right off. It's somewhat of a blend of ideas incorporating alot of stuff that deals with dystopian, who's watching who, trust-no-one paranoia.
What makes it fun is all the references to contemporary politics and current 21st century jitters. The script has these witty inferences flying off the wall, some you catch, some perhaps on a second viewing. There are a few times the movie course takes a sharp (politically) right or left turn which keeps events on edge (and on the fence).
For Adrian Paul fans this is probably one of the better post-Highlander (series)movies that he's done.
It does'nt stray far from its budget (somewhat low) but stays true to a decent sci-fi storyline and overall I found it a fast paced, hip, tweaked sci-fi adventure at 102 minutes.
It takes place in the not too distant future. It is about VERY mobile security cameras that are only supposed to observe. Nothing else. What the public does not know, is that each eyeborg is fitted with at least one weapon. Even the tiny eyeborgs. The movie provides a very realistic example of how technology can be exploited and abused by government. It even quotes Benjamin Franklin: "Those who would sacrifice freedom for safety, deserve neither."
Do yourself a favor, watch this and think about it. Tell everyone you know about this movie. The more people that see it, the better.

Went into this one expecting little else than a "watch once" extra-time burner, and from the opening moments it seemed to be fulfilling that expectation. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Ace-of-Stars
Not my greatest use of a few hours, and I love SciFi movies. The fact that earth would let technology go this far and not notice would be a stretch at minimum. I wouldn't pay $1. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Majo2469

A fun rendering of disillusion with government and the danger of forgetting that technology is only a tool to help humans. Shallow, but entertaining.Published on January 20, 2014 by KananKilgore
