Dynamite Dame shines in top thriller

Eye in the Sky Film4, Friday at 7pm ●●●●●


The war on terror gets a fresh, more personal twist in Gavin Hood’s emotionall­y charged thriller.

Guy Hibbert’s screenplay doesn’t sugarcoat – there are no clear heroes and villains, or right or wrong answers.

Dame Helen Mirren’s battlehard­ened soldier is her finest performanc­e in years and the late Alan Rickman is gifted a fittingly fine farewell.

A white-knuckle ride with powerful performanc­es and dealing in very serious business, Eye in the Sky is a thought-provoking look behind the curtain of modern warfare.
