Does one little girl's sacrifice worth it? If considering about the terrorists may kill hundreds of people, including children & adults, I would also choose to sacrifice one life.
There are so much ideas & thoughts that the movie expresses. It's breathless, thrilled, but also emotional.

A good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Well, after the rather disappointing 'Good Kill', it was pretty neat to finally see a really good movie dealing with the modern drone warfare.

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Well, after the rather disappointing 'Good Kill', it was pretty neat to finally see a really good movie dealing with the modern drone warfare. Indeed, they had a stellar cast and all the actors involved delivered some really solid performances. Even more important, it was simply a really good story, at the same time quite realistic but still really entertaining and it was dealing with a very topical subject. Furthermore, they didn't make the same mistake as the makers of 'Good Kill' as they didn't develop at all the private lives of the characters involved which was the best approach for this material. Still, there was one thing that did bother me though. Indeed, I can imagine that some of th” read more

"A military operation to use a drone to bomb a group of terrorists in Kenya escalates when a little girl enters the kill zone, triggering an international dispute over the implications of modern warfare. I think of this as Alan Rickman's The Dark Knight, in that it probably attracted a lot of attention because it was his final role, but the movie itself is still brilliant even without that added intrigue. :) This is one of the most taut, tense thrillers I've seen in quite a while – far more eng"

" Familiar Actors: Helen Mirren Aaron Paul Babou Ceesay Alan Rickman Phoebe Fox Gavin Hood Monica Dolan Barkhad Abdi and Iain Glen True Rating: 7.8/10 Here we are with another drone movie. This one has a much more remarkable cast than Good Kill. I mean for the most part I wanted to watch this for Helen Mirren. She happens to be quite awesome as expected. Aaron Paul does great here in his role. It's a plus that it also has Alan Rickman who doesn't seem to do a whole lot here sadly. Still the a"

2017 - Movie Diary (18 movies items)

"Good movie - definitely in the better batch of this genre. The center of it is the ancient dilemma, whether to sacrifice one life to save many can be justified or not. My only problem with the way this was presented in the movie is, that the dilemma is heavy and serious enough, so you don't have to add to its weight by making the 'one life' even heavier by choosing a sweet little girl as its subject (whose family is somewhat opposing the strict religious force they have to endure - another extra"

My Movie Diary 2016 (235 movies items)

" 7.10 Delivers with the kind of edge of your seat intensity and moral dilemma rarely seen in an unusual war movie set-up: the drone-remote control warfare. Director Gavin Hood is fortunate to have a tight, wonderful script and a casting ensemble with class. The late Alan Rickman's last acting performance."
