Colonel Katherine Powell is a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from "capture" to "kill."

Written by Bleecker Street

Alan Rickman is wearing his parachute wings on his uniform chest above his medals. Qualified parachutists serving in the British Army wear their parachute badge on their right sleeve at the shoulder. Those who do not serve with a parachute unit are permitted to wear a parachute badge without wings (known as a lightbulb) on their left sleeve. Serving personnel who qualified as Special Forces parachutists are allowed a different badge. During the Second World War, they wore this badge on their chest above their medals. The badge shown on Alan Rickman's uniform appears to be the Mess Dress Para Wings Qualification Badge. It would still be worn on the shoulder, not on the chest. Only pilots wings are worn on the chest above medals. The confusion appears to be that American personnel wear their parachute qualification badge on their chest. The British do not. See more »

Good Movie
12 June 2016 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

Unlike Good Kill, which is more focused on a drone pilot's life this movie is focused on a military joint operation between UK, US and Kenyan Forces against Al Shabab terrorists.

This movie is about ethical conundrum of drone attacks and killing innocent people in the process.

It's an intense film well acted and it really reflects how difficult it gets to give clearance for an attack when an innocent life gets in close proximity to a target.

There is a conflict between human ethics and achieving military objective.

Can 1 innocent life be sacrificed in order to save many? That's the question on which the whole movie revolves around.
