Sinopsis (Synopsys)

Eye In The Sky” secara konotasi dapat diartikan sebagai mata “pengintai”, mengacu pada pesawat tanpa awak (drone) yang biasa digunakan untuk kegiatan pengintaian, maupun penyerangan. Film ini memang mengangkat tema dasar penggunaan drone sebagai alat intai yang menjadi latar belakang, pertimbangan keputusan, hingga eksekutor perang. Tidak mengherankan jika tampilan monitor drone menjadi suguhan utama di film ini. Belum lama ini, jaringan bioskop Indonesia memutar film London Has Fallen, film laga yang juga menggunakan tampilan monitor drone di adegan pembukanya. Namun di film Eye In The Sky, drone beserta tampilan dari monitor nya tidak hanya terkesan tempelan, namun menjadi jiwa dari film ini.

“Eye In The Sky” can be intepreted as the eye of “observer”, referring to the unmanned aircraft (drone) which is used for espionage activities, as well as assaulting. The basic idea of this film is the usage of drones as a reconnaissance tool for the basic consideration decision, and the war executor. No wonder, the display of the drone’s monitor became the main treat in this film. Recently, Indonesian cinema networks play “London Has Fallen”, an action movie that also use drone’s monitor in the opening scene. But in “Eye In The Sky” ,the drone, along with its monitor, was not impressed as an object, but became the soul of the film.

Diceritakan Kolonel Katherine Powel (diperankan oleh Helen Mirren), seorang staff intelijen Amerika yang berbasis di Northwood, memiliki misi untuk menangkap buronan anggota Al-Shabaab, yang diketahui akan bertemu di sebuah rumah di Nairoby, Kenya. Namun misinya berubah menjadi misi membunuh para buronan, setelah mengetahui hasil intaian kamera kamuflase jarak dekat, bahwa para buronan sedang melakukan persiapan bom bunuh diri. Namun tiba-tiba, kehadiran gadis kecil penjual roti, Alia Mo’Alim (diperankan oleh Aisha Takow), menjadi penghalang misi Kolonel Powel, karena berdagang di daerah sasaran tembak.

It is told that Colonel Katherine Powel (played by Helen Mirren), an American intelligent staff, based in Northwood, had a mission to capture fugitive members of Al Shabaab, which are known to have meeting in a house in Nairoby, Kenya. But her mission changed into an assault mission after knowing the spy-result of a nearby camuflage camera that the fugitives were preparing suicide bombings. But suddenly, the presence of a young girl selling bread, Alia Mo’Alim (played by Aisha Takow), had become an obstacle of Colonel Powel’s mission for vending in the target area.

Konflik pun tidak hanya terjadi diantara para pembuat keputusan, namun juga dialami Steve Watts (diperankan oleh Aaron Paul), sang “pilot” drone penjatuh bom. Pergulatan batin Watts diantara perintah menjatuhkan bom dan rasa kemanusiaannya, berbanding terbalik dengan ambisi Kolonel Powel yang sangat ingin menghabisi para buronan. Lama-kelamaan, keberadaan sang gadis cilik pun menjadikan ia satu-satunya pertimbangan bagi para petinggi Amerika dalam membuat keputusan. Seru!

Conflict are not only between decision-makers, but also experienced Steve Watts (played by Aaron Paul), the bomber-drone “pilot”. Watts inward conflict between the command of dropping bombs and the humanity, is contraly to the ambitions of Colonel Powel who was eager to kill the fugitives. At last, the presence of the little girl made her the only consideration for American officials in making decisions. Exciting!

 

Review

Secara keseluruhan, film ini bagus untuk ditonton. Alur cerita yang menarik dengan bahasa yang lugas dan mudah dicerna. Menarik untuk diikuti bagaimana proses diskusi para petinggi Amerika dalam mengambil keputusan yang tepat, supaya tidak membahayakan mereka dari sisi hukum dan politik.

Overall, it is a nice film to see. The story line is interesting with unadorned language and easy to understand. Quite interesting to keep up with the process of discussions among the American officials in taking the right decision, which is not compromise them from law and politics.

Konflik batin kerap timbul dalam diri seseorang ketika melaksanakan kewajiban untuk mengikuti perintah atasan, walaupun bertentangan dengan hati nuraninya. Di sisi pemberi keputusan, harus diperkirakan efek dari sebuah keputusan yang mungkin dapat memberikan pandangan publik yang negatif, walaupun tujuannya adalah menghabisi musuh yang dapat membunuh lebih banyak warga sipil. Film ini benar-benar mengaduk emosi penonton dengan kenyataan-kenyataan tersebut, dan adanya penggiringan emosi menuju “pembenaran” dari sebuah keputusan.

Inner conflicts often experienced someone for doing the obligation, though it contrary to his conscience. Alongside the decision maker, it should be expected the effect of a decision which may have a negative public opinion, although the objective is to kill the enemy that will assasinate more civilians. These facts were really manipulted the audience’s emotion, which were directed to the “justification” of a decision.
