Good Kill 2015


Major Thomas Egan (Ethan Hawke) works in the middle of nowhere. It’s a very particular patch of nowhere: a metal box around 10 by 10 by 30 feet in size, in a U.S. military airfield on the outskirts of Las Vegas, Nevada. When he arrives in the morning, he walks past a sign that reads “You are now leaving the U.S. of A.”, before sitting at a battery of consoles linked to a fleet of drone aircraft in the skies above Afghanistan. They’re 7,500 miles away. Legally speaking, so is he.

The “good kill” of the title – a clean, efficient air strike in which the bad guy is dispensed with, at minimal risk to the dispensers – is what he’s paid to carry out. Afterwards, he climbs in his car and drives home, where his pretty wife (January Jones) is preparing dinner. Egan wears a dark green flight suit to work, but for all the flying he does, it might as well be a suit and tie. This former F-16 pilot, now half a world away from danger, is foundering: he’s lost touch with the means of destruction.

Andrew Niccol’s new film is a sophisticated, provocative and thoroughly modern war film that makes Clint Eastwood’s recent American Sniper look slow to find its target. It’s fascinated by the dehumanising effects of combat at a distance, and also the queasy convergence of violence and entertainment. Behind his bank of monitors, joystick in hand, Egan looks like a hardcore video-gamer, and at one point, a character balefully points out that “war is now a first-person shooter”. Like Niccol’s script for The Truman Show, Good Kill is keenly aware of the intoxicating, corruptive power of a God’s-eye view.

As Egan scan his screens, he sees with astonishing clarity the faces of the men – and sometimes, unavoidably, the women and children – he is about to execute. Over time, he gets to understand their daily routines, watching them eat, stroll and sweep.

But then his unit, which previously answered only to Bruce Greenwood’s defiantly old-school colonel, is sub-contracted by the C.I.A., who want to step up the attacks, act on flimsier evidence, and mount fast, repeated strikes to wipe out the crowds (“probably sympathisers”) that congregate around each smoking crater. These commands come from a low voice on the other end of a speaker phone: unlike the targets, we never see the face of the person issuing the orders. They’re just one step higher up the God chain.

This prompts a long-brewing personal crisis in Egan that’s handled deftly and persuasively by Hawke and Niccol (the pair have worked together twice before, on Gattaca and Lord of War), and it’s a pity that the surrounding dramas never quite keep pace with it. Greenwood’s character is fun and useful at first, explaining the mechanics of drone warfare to his new recruits (and also us), although soon enough he’s reduced to little more than a catchphrase-growling machine. (“It’s not our concern if this is a just war. For us, it’s just war”, “let’s go, people, warheads on foreheads”, and so on.)
