presents a scary manipulation of UK citizens through cyber terrorism by Russia's FSB. Their objective is to get people fighting the government, each other, and also using social media for setting up violent confrontations. Elections are targeted as well.
The story begins following a young, brilliant, female Muslim computer scientist working at cybersecurity in UK's intelligence division.
Wonderful actors, including Mark Rylance, are featured.
A rich (supposedly) politician selling national top secrets.
Too bad his working class cultists can't see that.
A lieutenant general (Alan Rickman) and a colonel (Helen Mirren) face political opposition after ordering a drone missile strike to take out a group of suicide bombers in Nairobi, Kenya.
Release date: April 1, 2016 (USA)
Director: Gavin Hood
Starring: Helen Mirren; Aaron Paul; Alan Rickman; Barkhad Abdia, Jeremy Northam; Iain Glen
It was a well done movie, reflecting the steps involved in ordering a drone strike, requiring international cooperation, changes in the mission, and especially, evaluating collateral damage. The techy spy stuff was fun, too.
