Most of this film takes place in a metal box on an air base in Las Vegas, where “pilots” fly drone bombing missions over the Middle East. The other scenes follow Ethan Hawke with his wife (January Jones), as he tries to rectify his work and maintain his marriage. The tactical scenes are both compelling and unsettling, while the personal moments could have used more dramatic punch. In addition, the commanding officer (Bruce Greenwood) is asked rather transparently by the script to continuously supply the debate points surrounding this controversial procedure. While it effectively raises some contentious arguments on both sides, the film would have had more punch with a more potent emotional parallel.
