About the Movie
From the producers of The Hurt Locker comes a riveting thriller about 21st-century warfare, where combat unfolds like a video game, but with real lives at stake. Veteran Air Force pilot Tom Egan (Ethan Hawke) yearns to get back into the cockpit of a plane, but now he launches drone strikes from an air-conditioned box in the Las Vegas desert. When he starts taking orders directly from the CIA, the stakes are raised and Egan's nerves—and his relationship with his wife (January Jones)—begin to unravel.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Good Kill is well-intentioned, but the topic of joystick combat needs more nuanced treatment than it gets here.
Fresh: Where Niccol succeeds is in creating an atmosphere of self-loathing, both for those manning the drones and the audience watching them work.
Rotten: It's a movie that hits every one of its ideological targets, but still winds up missing the mark.
Fresh: "Good Kill" wants to use the movies as a Trojan horse to confront us with our international sins. It's a worthy effort, even if it's not a very well-built horse.
Boring...period. I watched about 33% of it, then, I turned the movie off.
Ethan Hawke playing a grizzled, hard corr ex-fighter pilot turned drone operator - the dude is electric - January Jones is good but Zoe Kravitz is red hot! Worth a look
Solid war movie
