Storyline

The documentary follows people on both sides of the drone technology. The unique access to drone victims in Waziristan is juxtaposed to drone pilots who struggle to come to terms with the new warfare. The film covers diverse and integral ground from the recruitment of young pilots at gaming conventions and the re-definition of "going to war", to the moral stance of engineers behind the technology, the world leaders giving the secret "green light" to engage in the biggest targeted killing program in history, and the people willing to stand up against the violations of civil liberties and fight for transparency, accountability and justice.

Interesting but nothing new
31 January 2016 | by donmn763See all my reviews

This is an interesting documentary but hardly groundbreaking. We've been debating American policy on using drones for a decade or more. This documentary does very little to answer any questions. We hear from soldiers, citizens, business leaders and policymakers who are either opposed to drone use or favor it. It simply puts pictures to a debate we've been having for a decade.

The most interesting and perhaps the most important question is left totally unanswered: If not drones then what? More troops? Do nothing? If you're looking for answers, this is not the documentary where you'll find any.
