Eye In The Sky Review

Excellent

Almost forensic in its approach, this smart thriller explores a drone strike from a variety of perspectives that bring the moral dilemmas sharply into focus. This includes textured performances from seriously gifted actors who add layers of political, military, legal and emotional meaning to each moment along the way. So the film is continuously gripping, putting the audience right in the middle of the action.

The target is in a suburb of Nairobi, where three of the world's most wanted Somali jihadists are gathering to prepare two young suicide bombers for a mission. British Colonel Powell (Helen Mirren) is overseeing the operation from London, with her American drone pilots (Aaron Paul and Phoebe Fox) working in Las Vegas. The hitch is that two of the targets are UK citizens, and one is American, which means that they also need to have government officials in on the discussion. So Lt General Benson (Alan Rickman) is watching with British government ministers (including Jeremy Northam and Monica Dolan). Meanwhile in Kenya, a local operative (Barkhad Abdi) is on the scene. But just as everyone agrees to fire the missile, a young girl (Aisha Takow) wanders into the danger zone.

What follows is a remarkably tense escalation of decision-making, as everyone passes the buck up the chain to avoid making the call themselves. Guy Hibbert's script orchestrates this skilfully, keeping the atmosphere taut while stirring generous doses of black comedy into the interaction between soldiers and politicians. This includes amusing scenes in which Britain's foreign secretary (Iain Glen) is dragged into the conversation while suffering food poisoning in Singapore. Yes, the film has a terrific sense of instant global connections, as its characters work together at a huge distance from each other and from the target of their operation.

Aaron Paul Lived Off Gum Commercial For Two Years


Aaron Paul Conan O'Brien

In the years before he found fame as Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, Aaron was earning a living through commercials and thought he didn't have to worry about money once he had scored an advert for Juicy Fruit gum in 2000.

The commercial was a big hit for him financially, but he realised he had got too comfortable relying on the regular income once the cheques stopped rolling in.

"That paid all my bills for almost two years," Aaron told U.S. talk show host Conan O'Brien. "It's one commercial but there's no dialogue in it so they were able to sell the commercial to multiple countries... so I would get residuals every 13 weeks... When they stopped playing that commercial, it was such a loud reality check, 'oh my God, I need to get a job'".

Aaron Paul: 'I Have No Clue Who Crashed My Wedding!'


Aaron Paul

The 36-year-old actor married Lauren Parsekian, 29, back in 2013. The nuptials took place at the height of Aaron's fame through hit television show Breaking Bad, and several fans made their dreams come true when they managed to get into the ceremony.

It was only when Aaron was looking back at his wedding album that he and Lauren realised they had been infiltrated.

"We had three people crash our wedding," Aaron said during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday night (04Apr16). "We didn’t know it had happened until we started looking through photos of our wedding and we saw these three strangers and we’re like, ‘Who are these people?’

Alan Rickman Praised For Witty Performance


Gavin Hood Alan Rickman Helen Mirren Aaron Paul

The filmmaker’s latest movie is the military thriller Eye in the Sky, featuring Alan’s final big screen performance before his death earlier this year (16). The plotline examines modern warfare, and Gavin says the late actor introduced many different dimensions to his character Lieutenant General Frank Benson.

“The role of the general could so easily have been played in a fairly stereotypical way, a general with one position and this is his view,” the director said in an interview with the Huffington Post. “What Alan brings to a role… is a huge degree of intelligence, humour, irony, wit. He makes you laugh in the film, at moments of extreme tension. He helps the audience just release that tension for a moment, just by a throwaway line...

“Alan has the ability to play just absolute emotional truth and yet with real humour and never taking it to the slapstick level…

Writers' Strike Helped Save Aaron Paul's Breaking Bad Character


Aaron Paul Vince Gilligan Playboy

The cult show's creator, Vince Gilligan, had planned to kill the actor's character off after the pilot episode, but Paul was so good as Jesse Pinkman, the writer/director couldn't do it.

And when the strike began in November, 2007, Gilligan had a complete change of heart, according to Michelle MACLaren, another of the show's regular directors.

"Originally, Vince was going to kill Jesse," she told Playboy magazine. "I think after the pilot, he went, 'This guy's great'.

Aaron Paul Helen Mirren

The Breaking Bad star portrays a military drone pilot in the new war movie, and before he began filming his scenes, he was invited to meet Helen over dinner.

Aaron reveals he was star struck meeting the Oscar winner, but his nerves were quickly eased as they enjoyed a few drinks together.

"Man, she's such a legend," he gushed to U.S. breakfast show Today. "I look up to her in so many ways. When I first met her, they had already been shooting. We had dinner together, we just shared some whiskey... (it) breaks the ice!"

Aaron Paul: 'I Can't Stop Humming Seal'


Aaron Paul Seal John Lennon

The Breaking Bad actor married Lauren Parsekian in 2013 after meeting her at music festival Coachella and even their wedding was a musical affair, with performances from Foster the People and John Mayer. Going through his taste in tunes during an interview with NME magazine, Aaron explained the influence his spouse has had on him.

"Anything by Journey is a go-to karaoke song for me," he grinned. "My wife loves doing Kiss from a Rose by Seal. That song's been stuck in her head for four years. I'm not kidding. It's become part of her daily thing. She hums it around the house and she's even got me and all of her friends doing it!"

Another singer who Aaron is used to hearing at home is Elvis Presley, as his mother was a big fan of the late star. The actor also recalled the first show he ever attended, which was laid on by New Kids On The Block, featuring actor Donnie Wahlberg.

Aaron Paul Wants Out Of U.s. Over Donald Trump Campaign


Aaron Paul

A number of celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence and Salma Hayek, have condemned the frontrunner for the Republican Party's 2016 Presidential nomination after he courted controversy on the campaign trail.

The billionaire businessman's bid for the White House began badly when he used his launch event to accuse Mexican officials of sending "rapists" across the border with America, and his views on immigration have recently drawn criticism from Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church.

However, it is not the political hopeful's outspoken statements which worry Aaron, but whether Donald will be up to the job of U.S. leader.

Triple 9 Review

OK

After a post-apocalyptic dystopia (The Road) and Prohibition-era America (Lawless), Australian director John Hillcoat brings his edgy Wild West sensibilities to this gritty present-day heist thriller. The film is fierce and stylish, and utterly gripping even though there's the nagging sensation that nothing is happening under the surface. Thankfully, the actors add plenty of terrific texture to their characters.

It's set in Atlanta, where Terrell (Chiwetel Ejiofor) leads his crew of thugs (Anthony Mackie, Clifton Collins Jr., Aaron Paul and Norman Reedus) through a riotously dangerous bank robbery. They're working for the cold-hearted Russian mobster Irina (Kate Winslet), who demands an even bigger heist before she'll pay them. Terrell has a child with Irina, so feels like he has little choice in the matter, but his team is made up of unstable hotheads and corrupt cops who have their own opinions. One of the cops also has a new partner in Chris (Casey Affleck), a tenacious good guy who's the nephew of a cynical detective (Woody Harrelson) who's just beginning to crack this case. So the gang decides to distract the city's police force with a triple 9, code for a downed officer, while they carry out their next elaborate robbery. The question is who will take the bullet.

Matt Cook's script is a bundle of mad twists and turns, usually the result of impulsive gang members who act without thinking. The tension is very high, as each person's morality is warped at every turn. All while Chris tries to remain upright in the middle of a storm he doesn't quite understand. Each character is up against a wall, ready to do whatever it takes to survive in a situation that is getting increasingly out of control. And without more subtext, or at least a sense of these people's back-stories, no one on-screen is very likeable.
