In this quirky dark comedy inspired by a real-life story, astonishing revelations about a top-secret wing of the U.S. military come to light when a reporter encounters an enigmatic Special Forces operator on a mind-boggling mission. Reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor of ANGELS & DEMONS, MISS POTTER) is in search of his next big story when he encounters Lyn Cassady (Academy Award?-winner George Clooney), a shadowy figure who claims to be part of an experimental U.S. military unit with unparalleled psychic powers that can read the enemy's thoughts, pass through solid walls, and even kill a goat simply by staring at it. Intrigued by his new acquaintance's far-fetched stories, Bob impulsively decides to accompany Lyn on his search to find the program's founder, Bill Django (Academy Award?-nominee Jeff Bridges). The reporter is trapped in the middle of a grudge match when the pair runs into renegade psychic Larry Hooper (two-time Academy Award?-winner Kevin Spacey) and his personal militia of super soldiers. In order to survive this wild adventure, Bob will have to outwit an enemy he never thought possible.

Not that this was a bad movie. It's just that the Wilmot copy is bad and one cannot see the last 1/2hour. I never got to see them actually stare at a goat. Dang!

Huh? Watch this movie and you will soon feel like you are the "goat".
Little about remote viewing, a lot about inane, improbable script writing and acting.

I was expecting better, as I recalled the news regular TV reviews when the movie was released. It has a solid foundation, but the script is weak, and the only nice thing about the film were the goat views at the very end. The film circled about the comic degeneracy of the US Army's physic warfare division developed in the 1960s until the 2000 years where it ends in the film.

Was really expecting more from such a great cast. If this is based on a true story, then the american military is more trouble than I thought lol
