In the taut thriller Cellular, a cell phone saves Kim Basinger's life, but the cell phones in Echelon Conspiracy work more like homing devices for a killer. Security consultant Max Peterson's (ER's Shane West) problems begin when he receives a new one while on assignment in Bangkok. The sender is unknown, but their anonymous text messages prove beneficial to his physical and financial well-being, so Max follows the advice they provide--not a particularly wise move considering that Max's job is to "protect data from hackers" (but there'd be no movie otherwise). When he wins three million euros at an upscale casino in Prague, Max comes to the attention of Reed, the Head of Security (Ed Burns), who reports to business tycoon Mr. Mueller (Jonathan Pryce), and FBI Agent Grant (Ving Rhames), who reports to NSA Director Burke (Martin Sheen). Max also meets the doe-eyed Kamila (Tamara Feldman), who may or may not be part of the conspiracy against him. Together, Reed and Grant try to help Max unmask the player behind a plot to turn the world into a global police state, and speed is of the essence since the previous cell phone recipients have all met their respective makers. Despite the name cast, Greg Marcks's follow-up to 11:14 never hits the same dramatic heights as similarly-themed techno-thrillers like Eagle Eye and the Bourne series, but it's a reasonably diverting entertainment, especially if you like a healthy dose of paranoia mixed in with your gunplay and car chases. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

When Max Peterson (Shane West) receives a series of mysterious cell phone messages that promise him untold wealth, he soon finds himself the victim of a deadly international plot. Chased by a lethal team of government operatives, Max races across the planet in a desperate attempt to unravel a conspiracy that threatens the stability of the entire world. Edward Burns, Ving Rhames and Martin Sheen co-star in this techno-charged edge-of-your-seat action thriller!

Very similar to last year's "Eagle Eye," but with Shane West instead of Shia LaBeouf. This movie has a bit more intelligent script, but contains a lot less special effects (although there are several pretty good car chases). The theme of the U.S. government creating a machine for "national security" that then turns against them is nothing new and hardly science fiction these days, but the movies about it seem to be abundant. "Echelon Conspiracy" doesn't strike too far from the herd but it's still quite entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! March 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay, I know people say this is a copy of Eagle Eye, and if you look at the trailer they are alike, but honestly I believe it when they say Eagle Eye is the one that is like THIS movie. Echelon Conspiracy was done around same time Eagle Eye was, only difference is Eagle Eye was released in theaters first. I vote for this one to be quite honest. Seriously, this movie keeps you on your toes about what happens. ABSOLUTELY recommend this movie!

2.0 out of 5 stars ONE CALL, THAT'S ALL September 9, 2012
Format:DVD
PLOT SPOILER REVIEW***

The film starts out as an excellent thriller/mystery in spite of the lead being Shane West. Shane stars as Max "glass jaw" Peterson a man who installs programs in computers to prevent hackers. Max gets a strange phone that sends him text messages which saves his life and gives him money. We also know the government is after this device and other people have received such a phone and have died from following its instructions. At this point the film is an excellent thriller/mystery.

There are few suspects and clues in this production and then we find out who's the culprit and the film becomes boring. Max saves the day from a stunt he saw in "War Games" or if you prefer, the Star Trek episode "The Changeling." At this point I groaned. Perhaps if you have never seen either of those two productions, this might seem pretty darn good. As for me, I got bored when I realized you could kill the "bad guy" by tripping over the plug.

Ving Rhames always does a good character job. Outside of that, the film lacked. Might work as a rental. Better than most of the "Red Box" action.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bombs, no nudity, brief love scene.

3.0 out of 5 stars Let the Mystery Unfold August 24, 2011
Format:DVD
"Echelon Conspiracy" is a fairly good thriller. Director Greg Marcks who won an academy award as a student keeps the pace brisk and the mystery unfolding. Of the actors, Tamara Feldman comes across the best IMHO. She plays Kamila. From the first moments where she bumps into Max in a hotel hallway, we know she is not all she appears to be. Feldman, who has done lots of recent TV from "Gossip Girls," "Royal Pains" & "One Tree Hill," gives the character depth. Her reaction frames as she slouches wounded against the bathroom wall are powerful. Shane West, who I have been enjoying on the series "Nikita," plays the lead Max Peterson. He allows the story to be more interesting than his character's reaction to events. The flat performance doesn't give much of a springboard on which the film can rebound. Edward Burns who I actually did see in "27 Dresses" plays John Reed, the casino security and ex-agent. Martin Sheen's Raymond Burke is the bad guy bureaucrat who raves and twitches in Washington DC. Ving Rhames doesn't have as much to do as he did in "Mission Impossible II," but adequately goes through the paces. Jonathan Pryce who has been in numerous "Pirates of the Caribbean" films plays his usual ruthless tycoon. Sergey Gubanov plays the computer whizz Yuri Melanin in what is a great role for the young actor, allowing him to show several different layers. If you like the espionage genre, this is a good flick to kick back and just let it entertain you. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - [...] - @tss5078 May 31, 2013
Format:DVD
For the first 40 minutes, I was mesmerized by this film. The beginning was as thrilling and intriguing as any film I'd seen all year, but after that, the big secret is revealed and it became almost a shot for shot remake of Eagle Eye. It was seriously ridiculous how the two stories became almost exactly alike. Realizing this, the writers decided to throw in a big twist at the end, that might have saved the film had it made even a single bit of sense. Echelon Conspiracy begins with computer programer, Max Petersen (Shane West), anonymously receiving a brand new, state of the art, cell phone in the mail. The phone gives him instructions which lead to him winning a lot of money. Everything is going great for Max, until he disobeys the phones wishes and the FBI shows up. Shane West was fantastic in this film, it really makes me wonder why he doesn't do more stuff like this. West seems to prefer romantic dramas, but is clearly missing his true calling. After seeing a performance like this, I'd easily put him at the top of the list for any major action film. West was paired in this film with Edward Burns who was terrific and Ving Rhames who was Ving Rhames. I say that, because sometimes he's the perfect fit for a role and other times, he couldn't be more out of place, a perfect example of which is his role in this film. As I said, this movie starts out great, but becomes exactly like Eagle Eye, I would venture to say that the two films are so much a like that the producers of Eagle Eye have a case for copyright infringement, it really was that close. Besides that, the film was a decent action film, with some nice performances. Had I not seen Eagle Eye, I may have thought more of this film, but as it stands, Echelon Conspiracy is just another low budget rip off of a semi-decent major motion picture and not much else.
