Intelligent, thought-provoking 10/10
2 July 2016 | by LA Carlson (United States) – See all my reviews

Is there anything better than having Academy Award winner Helen Mirren and the late Alan Rickman in a movie together? They are front and center in a story about drones, war, decisions and heartache. This adult movie succeeds in spades in being a drama, a meditation on the mental and physical perils of war and the introduction of drones into our society. Aaron Paul and Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) have small but significant roles as well. Easily one of the best movies I've seen this year. This movie is relevant in light of the increased violence we seem to wake up to each day. At its core it is about the juxtaposition of protecting citizens against evil in the world and evaluating the collateral damage which often comes with those decisions. It should give the compassionate viewer much to think about.

One little girl or 80 innocent civilians, do you?

This isn't 'Dr Stranglove', it's the stuff nightmares are made of.
