Eagle Eye

The woman is in fact a sophisticated computer system that has become self aware and has determined that the current President must be eliminated due to the bombing of an innocent funeral at the beginning of the film. The computer's plan is to blow up the State of the Union address using a crystal shaped bomb in a necklace Rachel is wearing, and a sonic trigger hidden in her son's trumpet, whose band is playing the national anthem at said address. Jerry and Morgan figure all this out and try to head to the Capitol to stop this, but a remote operated airplane bombs their car. Morgan crashes his car into the plane, blowing both of them up, and Jerry makes it to the Capitol and fires Morgan's gun, interrupting the national anthem. Jerry is shot by security, but the bomb is successfully thwarted. The computer is shut down by the Secretary of Defense and Jerry is awarded a medal for his troubles. The last scene is Jerry showing up at Rachel's son's birthday party.

Factual error: Ethan Shaw is mentioned throughout the movie as graduating from the Air Force Academy, and also as a Lieutenant by other characters. When his brother Jerry Shaw is shown his brother's ID by ARIA (the eagle eye computer,) the ID shows Ethan Shaw as a SMSgt (Senior Master Sergeant). This is impossible by Air Force standards, even if he was a genius. It cannot be part of a fake cover as listing a 20-something year-old as a SMSgt would be so obviously fake as to be useless. No one in the Air Force would believe it and anyone competant enough to design ARIA and the infrastructure to accompany her would not make such a ridiculous mistake

Question: What was the real purpose of that short last scene of the movie? Our guess was that it was to advertise Rock Band. Anyone agree?

Answer: I think it was to show that Jerry and Rachel maintained a friendship after it all. Also to maybe, maybe hint about some kind of romantic future in the way that Rachel says, "you remembered", when her ex-husband was said to never have remembered Sam's birthday.That's my thoughts - I think it's just to let us know how the characters turned out.
