Drone

 (381)
5.41 h 29 min2017X-Ray15
An electrifying, edge-of-your-seat thriller, starring British acting legend Sean Bean. A private drone contractor (Sean Bean: Game of Thrones) spends his workdays flying covert missions then returns to his suburban family life - without his family knowing about his secret life - until a whistle-blowing site exposes him to a deadly threat. A supremely timely, heart-stopping thriller. Unmissable!

Tedious drivel
Verified purchase
I assumed the title of this film referred to an unmanned aerial vehicle, but it seems that instead it speaks of a dull plot, woefully inadequate writing, and Sean Bean's awful accent. After an hour of what appeared to be French new-wave inspired long-form editing in which no superfluous minutiae was left on the cutting room floor, I finally tired of the wooden cast, stilted plot, pitiful script, and a plot in which literally nothing happens; and switched off. Maybe this turkey's vinegar strokes in the closing minutes are a roller coaster ride of action, insight, pathos, and much needed denouement; but frankly I was beyond caring. Come friendly JDAMS, fall on whichever studio exec gave this turd election to proceed.

Sean bean and the rest of the cast deserve special mention.
An absolute tour de force screen play in a awesome film.
Very underestimated and highly original-- Eye in the Sky comes a poor second place to this.
100% adrenaline.
Highly recommended
Please ignore the bad reviews they are clearly completely out of touch with cinematic compliance.

Total dross.

Absolute rubbish, I can only assume Sean Bean did this to pay for a divorce or something. AVOID.

Politically Loaded Drivel
Verified purchase
This film is honestly rather poor in every single aspect you can think of, making it boring and monotonous more or less throughout, so absolutely not an "electrifying, edge-of-your-seat thriller" at all. If you manage to watch it through to the end, you will discover that the sole purpose of this film seems to be pointing an accusing finger at the USA, for actively fighting terrorism in far away places using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or drones as they are also known as.

That Sean Bean is the leading actor is of course a warning in itself, more or less suggesting that no proper actor was willing to take on this role. In these cases turn to good old Sean Bean, who seems to be happy to do absolutely anything for money.

Not an edge-of-your-seat thriller!
Verified purchase
I have so many issues with this film in terms of it's tone, pace, casting, the dialogue, unrealistic character behaviour.

To be clear the plot is ok ... but just ok, nothing more. The script turns the film into 75 minutes of a study into family grief with the last 15 minutes being the edge-of-your-seat thriller that the description claims it to be ... and that's being generous. It's quite disjointed and the actual subject matter is not properly explored until the very last act. By the end of the film I think I learned more about grief than I did about the consequences of remote warfare and whistleblowing. I don't think that was the objective of the filmmaker.

There are better films out there that explore this subject ... I would recommend searching them out instead of watching this.

Drones on a bit
Verified purchase
Very slow, a bit of excitement at the start, then a bit more after 60 minutes of not much. If you want to see a film that really explores the morals behind drone strikes, watch "Eye in the Sky".
Although I quite like Sean Bean (Or Seen Born, as one of my friends refer to him) he cannot do a convincing American accent. When he wore a green jacket, and basically played himself as Sharpe, he was good. Despite being a bit old for the part he made a commendable showing in "When Saturday Comes", and I'm no football fan. It was sad to see him die as Ned Sharp in "Game of Thrones", but playing himself with an American accent does not work.
I gave it 2 stars because I fancy Mary McCormack, and Patrick Sabongui puts in a very creditable appearance as the grieving moslem father/widower, otherwise, I recommend not watching it.

Poor title good film
Verified purchase
OK it dragged a bit here and there but got its point across very well. Always good to see Sean Bean in normal clothes.
Not keen on the succinct title as it does not help you find it amongst others with similar titles.
Whatever your feelings about remote control weapons you should give this a moment of your time.
