One of the best movies of the year, I highly recommend this. Makes you think, feel and debate. That's the sign of quality.
27 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"If Al-Shabab kill 80 people we win the propaganda war. If we kill one they do." Colonel Katherine Powell (Mirren) has been tracking a terrorist cell for years and finally has found her chance to capture them. After the discover 2 suicide vests in the house the mission changes from capture to kill. Drone pilot Steve Watts (Paul) is about to fire when he sees a young girl in the kill zone. He refuses to fire unless the can assure her safety. This sets off an international dispute as to what to do. This is a great movie. Unbelievably tense and really makes you think and wonder what is the right thing to do. This movie does a really fantastic job of giving two convincing sides of the argument and you really aren't sure what is the right answer. In that sense the movie has to be incredibly realistic. Up until the very end you aren't sure how the movie is going to end up, and that really adds to the tension and the quality of the movie. This is one of those movies that you just want to tell everyone about and make them watch it. Overall, one of the best movies of the year, I highly recommend this. Makes you think, feel and debate. That's the sign of a quality piece of work. I give this an A.
