Colonel Katherine Powell is a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from "capture" to "kill." But as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute, reaching the highest levels of US and British government, over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare.Written by

Towards the end of the movie, it is day time (possibly late afternoon) when Alia (in Nairobi, Kenya) is taken to the hospital. Drone pilots Steve Watts and Carrie Gerson (in Nevada, USA) leave the control cabin at what is supposedly sunrise. Col. Powell (in London, UK) leaves at the same time but is shown driving at night. It should have been around noon in London. See more »
This movie was all of a sudden for me. "GoodKill" was the previous movie I saw which was made on the pilot behind the control's of the drones. But this took the movie to another level and did not let it stay stagnant.
I went into watching this movie with no idea, apart from the fact Aaron Paul and Helen Mirren are in it. It took me on a edge of the seat, nail biting suspense to understanding of all the decisions and effort that goes into putting a mission into effect.
If you wanna see a rare movie, shot splendidly, beautiful cast, perfect emotions and acting - this is a movie to watch. It might even crack your tears up if your so engrossed into the role these actors play in this movie.
One to watch, and I feel one to definitely own in Blue Ray.
