This movie highlights important societal issues. Drone warfare is the future and soon many drones will be flying over US soil. Not just military drones mind you, but your local police will have them as well.
The reality is this. The US kills many innocent people with drones. For example, in Pakistan alone 41 men were targeted but 1,147 people killed. If you wish, you can search on this statistic and it will take you to the article about this.
It is time America dealt with the reality of what it is doing and this film is a small step in that direction. I will not write an exhaustive review because I hate spoiling movies for people, but the movie is worth watching and more importantly, thinking about.
