Eye in the Sky Summary: What the movie is all about?
A little girl inadvertently takes a position outside the bread-selling compound, inside the missile’s detonation zone. While the bombers prepare inside, the only man available on the ground tries to buy all of his bread but is chased by soldiers who recognize him.
The camera inside runs out of battery, leaving tense observers unsure when they’ll need to take action. After the decision to sanction the strike is repeatedly passed to others, the colonel-in-charge gets one of his subordinates to re-target the missile’s impact point,
And intentionally hit that area with 45% of the injury. Reports a lower risk of knowing where the girl is, rather than the expected estimate of 45-65%, knowing that politicians will be persuaded. The missile is fired while the girl is still in the blast zone.
However, with only a few seconds effect, the man who was chased manages to find a local boy to find him and buy bread. She packs up and starts to walk away, but very slowly and gets caught in the explosion.
The primary target is still mobile, so a second missile launch is ordered while the girl’s parents rush to her aid, but do no more harm. The girl was taken to the hospital, but she died – all who came from above were unaware of this but knew that she was seriously injured.
Eye in the Sky Ending Explained: What happens in the war?
It’s terrible to see someone decide to die. This film shows very well. Both options are terrible. But where I’m afraid the films erode morally is the scenario in which they are set.
Because what else could be the answer other than one? If we’re talking one death versus eighty, even if it’s a little girl, there’s only one answer: You save eighty lives at the cost of one.

As presented in the film, the decision fully satisfies the principle of double effect. So in that sense, the decision is clear, no matter how dire. Who will take the responsibility of decision making is the issue.
Military higher-ups, understanding what war is all about, make decisions quickly. Politicians and drone pilots only complicate matters. The film is a surprisingly mind-boggling take on the future of war. The enemies are Islamic terrorists hiding in plain sight in East Africa.
The “eye in the sky” of the title is a Predator drone designed to rain death on a population below at an altitude of 25,000 feet, with its aptly named Hellfire missiles.
Director Gavid Hood (Tsotsi, Wolverine) does not take sides. Other than the obligatory potshots at some Gung Ho Yanks and ineffective Brits.
There’s some amazing but very real technology coming to the battlefield soon in the movie. A miniature surveillance drone the size of an insect. Surveillance software that recognizes ear prints. And another drone that looks and flies like a hummingbird.
