Eye in the Sky
A joint British, American and Kenyan operation to capture three of the most wanted individuals on the US President's East African terror list enters murky territory when issues of potential 'collateral damage' arise.
'Eye in the Sky' is a depiction of conflict in the 21st Century executed with the use of high technology whilst political, warfare and ethical issues are discussed, finessed, bent and arguably ignored.
This is an unexpected and quite brilliant thriller on matters that we read about in the news but about which we have little real knowledge. I don't know how accurate are the depictions of the deployment of missile carrying drones and the decision making processes that go into employing them but this all has made for a very fine movie with much for the audience to debate about afterwards.
