Eyeborgs (2010) – By Brian Morton

I’ll be flat out honest with you, when I grabbed the DVD of Eyeborgs from my inbox, I was less than enthusiastic. In fact, I might have groaned something about ‘another terrible low budget sci-fi movie’. Well, after the first 2 minutes of Eyeborgs, I was not just pleasantly surprised; I was flat out in awe of how amazing this movie was!!

The story here is set in the not too distant future; the government has passed a ‘freedom of observation’ act, connecting all the country’s surveillance systems together for the ‘good of the country’. The government has also developed independent surveillance devices, called eyeborgs that are basically cameras with legs that walk around and look for trouble. But, when a man with anti-government leanings it taken into custody by homeland security, the eyeborgs take control of surveillance and kill the man while covering their own tracks. Now, one homeland security agent and one reporter have the idea that someone outside the government is controlling the eyeborgs and is trying to use them to kill the President, but no one else believes them!

Eyeborgs is a really cool low budget sci fi movie in the vein of the Tom Selleck movie, Runaway. Its sci fi content isn’t so far-fetched that you can’t believe it, and the CGI is good enough to suspend any disbelief that you might have. It’s an amazing little action movie that will have you on the edge of your seat throughout. I’m giving Eyeborgs 4 out of 4 cigars, its proof, once again, that I should never judge a DVD by its cover!
