Movies 'Eye in the Sky' and 'Good Kill'

Recommended Posts

There are two movies, both on Netflix Now, that concern fictional USAF drone crews.   They are Good Kill and Eye In The Sky .  I'm long retired and never had anything to do with drone operations.

Real drone crews and  also current USAF members.  If you saw either or both of these, what did you think about them?

Good Kill just reeked of stupidity from the trailer so that was a hard pass, but after my dad told me that he really thought Eye in the Sky was good, I gave it a shot. Big mistake. My alternate title for that movie is, "Two War Criminals and 25 Dickless Idiots Conduct an Airstrike." I had to apologize to my wife afterward both for making her watch the movie and also for having to put up with me ranting the whole time...

A buddy told me the only thing they got right about the drone community, or RPA depending on your take, is the alcoholism.

I turned off Good Kill when he turns right leaving Creech to return to Vegas.

Then you missed his stopover in Pahrump.

Anyone seen the new Jack Ryan series on Amazon?

Nice to see some off-color 42d patches.  Also Creech appears to be a huge B-52 base located somewhere near the Grand Canyon.

Quite entertaining.

It is also a BUFF base with LA tail codes somewhere in the Virginia or DC area.

Also one that can be easily serviced by the USCG station at Elizabeth City.

That's not even mentioning the path he took to work on his bike.
