Good Kill

If you never face your enemy, how can you face yourself.


Good Kill
Writer-director Andrew Niccol is back with another thought-provoking film. Set in the shadowy world of drone warfare, where combat unfolds like a video game... only with real lives at stake. After six tours of duty, an Air Force pilot yearns to get back into the cockpit of a real plane, but he now fights the Taliban from an air-conditioned box in the Las Vegas desert. When he and his crew start taking orders directly from the CIA, and the stakes are raised, his nerves — and his relationship with his wife — begin to unravel.
