A powerful film, superbly directed

This is an honest, powerful film, unflinching in its examination of violence and the false dichotomies created when we cast ourselves as heroes, and other human beings as the "enemy."

Director Jason Bourque focuses his lens on American "contractor" Neil Wistin (Sean Bean) who is at once removed from, and directly responsible for the loss of innocent lives literally blown apart by the missiles launched from drone aircraft he pilots remotely. We witness a day in Neil's life, where, from a sparsely-furnished office, he directs a drone to fire a missile into a Pakistani city, causing "collateral damage": another man's wife and daughter are killed. Neil then goes home to his own family in the suburbs where, in contrast to the warm, vibrant images of Pakistan, colors are drained, washed out, as bloodless as the violence Neil appears to inflict thousands of miles away.

But as Bourque makes clear in his film, the loss of human life – the loss of a wife, a child – is far from bloodless. We are shown the impact of Neil's remote violence up-close and it is as immediate, raw and disturbing as it should be.

The camera lingers on mirrors, suggesting that our own culpability is reflected back to us. This is a difficult idea to accept, and one that is bound to make people uncomfortable – as it should. Bourque raises some difficult topics of conversation that his own characters prefer not to discuss at the dinner table. This is not a film about polite conversation. It is about the disturbing realities of modern warfare, and the very real pain we inflict on others. In Drone, the political is made personal. And the inescapable conclusion is that we are all victim to our own prejudices.

Drone On...

This is a totally unoriginal story. Very similar to the recent Pierce Brosnan film IT. This narrative has been played so out so many times in so many films you can skip the unsurprising ending. If you want to save a dollar just watch the trailer, you have the whole unimaginative story.

Sean Bean & Patrick Sabongui are excellent actors and their performance are first rate considering the material but the rest of the film is a complete dud and hard to watch. Looking on the producers list of past films he is not known for ground breaking or original stories and this is waste of 90 minutes of your life.

true to its name

The movie was slow to develop, Sean and Patrick acting was OK, but the ending was good. I've seen a couple of movies with the same theme but this was a bit interesting as it involves interaction with the victim's family.The Neil's family crisis was highlighted too early to begin with i thought Imir's character should be develop further on. Worth a watch at least once.
