Blu-ray Release: Good Kill

August 25, 2015

By John Corrado

Good Kill Blu-rayAfter playing at TIFF last year, Remstar Films is releasing Good Kill on Blu-ray today.  Major Thomas Egan (Ethan Hawke) is a drone pilot, locked in a bunker firing unmanned missiles at selected targets in Afghanistan, before going home to his wife (January Jones) and kids.  But he can only manage living this privileged suburban life for so long, before the trauma and guilt of his work catch up with him.

Ethan Hawke sells this role every step of the way, turning in compelling and nuanced work that brings fascinating complexity and genuine emotional depth to this conflicted character.  His performance, and the morally ambiguous questions posed even just in the title, are what make this thought provoking modern war film worth seeing.  My full review can be found right here.

The Blu-ray includes no bonus features.

Good Kill is 112 minutes and rated 14A.
