Lighten up ...... it's only science fiction ...... or is it ?
2 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like something out of the pages of "The National Enquirer", "The Listening" is entertaining, as long as you don't let facts get in the way of a good story. After all, the best science fiction, is believable science fiction. Michael Parks goes up against the government's National Security Agency and a private corporation supplier, trying to save an innocent Italian woman from their abusive silencing techniques. Though the movie has it's flaws in the logic department, the intriguing subject matter overcomes any glitches in the story. If you are one of those people who is paranoid about "big brother" listening, this is a film you might want to avoid, because it will definitely strike a nerve. - MERK
