An Air Force pilot becomes disturbed when flying drones and questions his missions with the CIA.
The film: stars Ethan Hawke, January Jones, and Bruce Greenwood. Mr. Hawke was praised for his strong acting.
My thoughts: I didn't see this movie at the theater because it was showing in a suburb about an hour away and I was like what???!!! The indie theaters nearby get great films and this one will show up. It didn't.
Recently, Handsome and I upgraded our audio/visual system and now have Netflix. While trying it out, we scrolled through new releases and I saw the poster for Good Kill. I pointed it out to Handsome, saying we wanted to see it but didn't because...
Anyway, Ethan Hawke gives a great performance. The movie moves at a good pace and was never boring. Not familiar with everything military, this was a good glimpse into the life and the jobs soldiers perform. Although the subject matter can be disturbing, I thought a lot about it afterwards. Definitely not for kids.
I want to share this part: drones are involved. My dad served on battleships and aircraft carriers in WW2 and he was part of a drone crew as a mechanic. Not nearly the same as what today's drones do; yet, they have been around longer than we think.
