Trivia

The IR Camera that Ben uses has the same settings (.95/20/0 degrees C), day or night wherever and whenever it was used because the on-loan IR camera was dropped and broke during the filming. Then IR footage was created using video effects to resemble actual IR camera footage. (According to director Daniel Myrick). See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie Benjamin Keyes is introduced as Agent Keyes. Members of the CIA are called intelligence officers, an agent is someone hired or recruited from the outside. See more »

I Loved this movie
29 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

A thinking man's psychological thriller, The Objective takes you on a journey that will chill you AND make you think. I saw this at Tribeca and it was a sell out with most of the audience staying for the intelligent Q and A, always a good sign.

The music too was very strong, as was the performances of all the actors involved.

If you're seeking a different movie, one that is original in story, tone and character, THE OBJECTIVE is a must see for you!

A fun film!

I say check it out big-time!
