5.0 out of 5 stars The NSA is watching us... December 17, 2007
By Alex
Format:DVD
Intriguing movie based on the realities of US spying technology and what it could mean for all of us.
A superb cast headed by Michael Parks (From Dusk to Dawn, Kill Bill, Vol I and Death Proof) who is 'frequently cited by longtime fan Quentin Tarantino as the world's greatest living actor' - he does the quote justice.
The story is about one man's struggle to protect an innocent woman from retributions, as she unknowingly becomes embroiled in the sinister world of international espionage, big business and the NSA. Overall very entertaining, a definate one to watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! A great surprise! December 5, 2007
By Hannah
Format:DVD
I hadn't heard about this movie, but I'm glad I saw it. The NSA can listen to us, even if our cell phones are off? Yikes! Apparently this movie is based on fact! And it's a really good film. Visually, it looks great. And the story is captivating.

4.0 out of 5 stars prescient view of the NSA April 5, 2014
Format:DVD
This is a pretty amazing movie for its prescience.

It about this Italian girl who runs afoul of US intelligence and is in danger of being assassinated. This inside guy in the NSA sees she is in danger and contacts her. A chase ensues ala Jason Bourne with NSA hot on her trail via their technical-hacking methods. The inside guy determines that the only way to get her out of danger is to expose the NSA and its capabilities to the world. It's so amazing because it was made in 2007, six years before Snowden dropped a dime on the NSA. All the things we've learned in the past year about the NSA from the likes of Snowden are laid out in this movie.

Having said that, it has pretty low budget with actors you never heard of with chase scenes that aren't that compelling. It went straight to video and It's not even listed on IMDB. A lot of this has to do with the nature of the technology they're depicting. It's just hard to get excited about two parties staring at computer screens yelling about highly technical things. example: "oh no! they've detected our intrusion into their network, we've gotta run!" and so on. Still, amazing for its careful explanation of NSA methods and capabilities. Just to think, if some investigative journalist had got a hold of this movie when it came out and taken it seriously, Snowden's expose woulda amounted to, "tell us something we don't know."
