Variety - Guy Lodge
Just as Niccol's narrative structure is at once fraught and immaculate in its escalation of ideas and character friction, so his arguments remain ever-so-slightly oblique despite the tidiness of their presentation.
Empire -
It's "Top Gun" with gamer's thumb. Ethan Hawke shines in a complex, satisfying character study turned combat thriller.
HitFix - Drew McWeeny
Niccol is working in a very stripped down and direct mode, and I think overall, it works. "Good Kill" is unsettling, and the entire cast does spare, unsentimental work.
The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
Niccol weighs the human toll on both aggressor and target with intelligence and compassion, while questioning whether technological warfare is inevitably destined to be an unending cycle.

Good Kill (2014)

A Las Vegas-based fighter pilot turned drone pilot fights the Taliban by remote control for 12 hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other 12. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he's killing? Is he fighting a war without end.
