A taunt thriller about a drone flight whose mission turns from capture to kill. A very philisopical outing where just like the war on terror winning is hard to quantify but the forumla for collateral damage is well defined.
Alan Rickman and Helen Mirren star in Gavin Hood’s nail-biting thriller that explores the ethics of drone strikes
Gavin Hood did a predator like job of directing this movie that at times came close to the ministry of silly walks, but in the end real horror. His nice body of work includes X-Men Wolverine and Enders Game.
Arron Paul and Kim Engelbrecht play the unfortunate drone pilots convincingly. This movie is very well made and thought provoking, a sure box office bomb. (Just $18 million in North America) Just checked amazingly Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 95%. Which nuged me higher in this case
Four Stars for a move that really puts the drone in drones
