User Reviews

 
Heavy handed scripting and bad acting ruin a decent story
17 November 2017 | by mancinibrownSee all my reviews

Sean Bean plays Neil, a military contractor. Unlike other contractors his contract involves flying drones from back home in the USA, not boots on the ground. He does his job, goes home and lives his life.

The legality and morality of drone warfare is a current hot topic, and is the core of this thriller. When Neil is introduced to Imir, with the intention of selling his recently deceased father's boat, all of that comes boiling out in some well played scenes.

Unfortunately, those scenes don't overwhelm some of the terribleness earlier on and later in the movie. The director and writer clearly had a message they wanted to say, and they say it with some of extremely heavy handed dialogue. These scenes potentially also lead to some of the bad performances of the actors, as in other, more intimate scenes, the acting can be decent.

The movie also throws in a couple like sideplots which don't really go anywhere. The movie wanted to show that everybody has secrets, but it doesn't really contribute to the main storyline, and wasn't needed.

The movie isn't horrible, and there were certainly times it was enjoyable, but the reverse is also true where there were points that were awful.
