Eye in the Sky (Blu-ray release 2016-6-28) shows a hypothetical drone strike against terrorists, although most of the movie consists of politicians, generals, lawyers and soldiers debating and avoiding making controversial decisions – the most important of which is the likely sacrifice of the life of a little girl.

The thoughtful movie achieves its purpose in presenting different views on the issue.  I think I learned something here, but it is not the type of movie that I’d call entertaining.  The acting is uniformly excellent.  For me, the most important thing is this is the last time we see Alan Rickman (1946-2016) on screen.
