In the shadowy world of drone warfare, combat unfolds like a video game-only with real lives at stake. After six tours of duty, Air Force pilot Tom Egan (Ethan Hawke) now fights the Taliban from an air-conditioned bunker in the Nevada desert. But as he yearns to get back in the cockpit of a real plane and becomes increasingly troubled by the collateral damage he causes each time he pushes a button, Egan's nerves--and his relationship with his wife (Mad Men's January Jones)--begin to unravel. Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War) directs this riveting insider's view of 21st-century warfare, in which operatives fight unseen enemies from half a world away.

The ethics of remote warfare ought to be on the minds of us who wonder about our future role in conflicts across the globe. We've gone from face to face confrontations where the costs impacted each side daily and considerably to "safe" ideologic bombing. I have no love for the Islamicists whose religiofascism will drive warfare over the next few generations, but I also wonder whether our physical detachment from the ground-in-play is counterproductive.
The movie itself was rather formulaic, but I think it graphically distilled some of the worries that we ought to have about the role of a Superpower in conflicts not directly affecting our national security. When every activity in the world affects our interests, then the excuse of national security becomes meaningless.
The worst part of this movie is January Jones' acting. In some scenes she is horrible but, given the quality of this movie, she was probably told to go on set and wing it; the dialog is flat and the acting wooden.
