Synopsis 3 stars out of 5 -- The ease of execution is terrifying. Niccol keeps the combat scenes credible, tense and harrowing...4 stars out of 5 -- Ethan Hawke shines in a complex, satisfying character study turned combat thriller.Repeated, suffocating scenes of remote warfare make you acutely aware of the soul-draining despair felt by its pilot protagonist....That makes writer-director Andrew Niccol's achievement notable...Disregard the arguments for and against drone warfare advanced in GOOD KILL, and the movie still makes a persuasive case that our blind infatuation with all-powerful technology is stripping us of our humanity.3 stars out of 4 -- [A] potent provocation that keeps gnawing at you. Ethan Hawke digs deep and gives one of his best performances...[T]he visuals pack a visceral punch. Every time Tom zeroes in on a target, every time he pushes that button, what we see on those monitors is brutally authentic.[A] timely meditation on the mental and emotional costs of remote-control warfare.Andrew Niccol's 21st century war drama GOOD KILL stars Ethan Hawke as Air Force Major Thomas Egan, a talented pilot who spends his days operating a drone over various terrorist threats in the middle east while sitting in a trailer on a base in Las Vegas. Egan hates not being allowed to fly actual planes anymore, and as the CIA begins dictating orders to Egan and his crew, he begins to feel morally disconnected from his job. This leads to more conflict at home with his wife (January Jones), who wishes her husband could focus on their family as much as his military duty. GOOD KILL screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
