Approximately an hour into the film, the team engage in an operation in Yemen. Vera Suarez says, "I've never been to Yemen, sir," and the footage cuts to the drone camera over a traditional Yemeni home with open courtyards. This is actually a movie set, constructed in Ouarzazate, Morocco for the Jerusalem sequence in Ridley Scott 's Kingdom of Heaven (2005). By agreement with the town's government it remained standing after the film wrapped, and is a popular location for productions involving similarly medieval architecture. It was recently featured during Season 4 of the TV show Game of Thrones (2011). Despite being mostly complete, you can identify it as a movie set from the shot in the film, by noting the scaffolding on the bottom of the structure revealing an incomplete wall. A battering ram prop from Kingdom of Heaven (2005) can be seen next to this scaffolding. See more »

How stupid are wars and how can we justify collateral damage?
Even though I hate every war and soldiers on this planet I did enjoy this movie. It's all about the ethics of war. Who has the right killing other people? And is it fair for the innocent bystanders to get killed and being considered as collateral damage? Because let's be honest, the people that are at the top of every government and/or army, the people that decide if we should go to war or not, those are the people that will never get killed because they are the biggest cowards on this planet. They risk absolutely nothing but still get the credit in case of a victory or whatever. In Good Kill Ethan Hawke plays the soldier that has to push the trigger to kill people from the other end of the world, without being in the front line. He has to follow the dubious orders from maleficent evil people that have only greed and possessions as values in their lives. I thought it was a good movie, if you want to think a little bit further then the mainstream war propaganda we see every day. A good movie if you are like me thinking that every war is completely ridiculous. If everybody would mind his own business then there would never be wars. But then again, we are humans, the parasites of this planet, and thinking this madness will ever end is just an utopian idea.
