A Las Vegas-based fighter pilot turned drone pilot fights the Taliban by remote control for 12 hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other 12. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he's killing? Is he fighting a war without end.Written by

The name tag A1C Saurez gives Major Egan has her rank engraved on it. Air Force blue name tags do not have rank engraved on them. The nametag also had a stick pin type attachment on the rear. Air Force name tags have two pins with push on retainers, commonly referred to as "frogs". See more »
Egan says he took his wife up in his F-16 on their first date. F-16s are single seaters. Actually there are some two-seaters (general officers have to fly with another pilot), but civilians very rarely get a flight in an F-16. Usually congressman, VIPs, special press, but NEVER girlfriends or spouses. 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.
