3/4 

A tight-paced thriller that examines the effects of modern drone warfare from the highest offices to the drone pilots and the innocent bystanders caught in the middle. Standout performances from Helen Mirren, Alan Rickman (in his final live-action role), Aaron Paul and Barkhad Abdi help lend a weight to the proceeding, much of which unfolds in real time. Very tense and raises some very important issues - well worth checking out.

We continuously cut between the perspective of all the people involved: the highest ranking officials who debate the issue, the next in command below them who gives the orders, the soldiers who execute the task, and the people on the ground being watched by all of them. Switching between these players never once loosens the tension felt during this realistic scenario. We have a clear understanding of the moral confusion ad...
