All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

Combines a righteous message about out-of-control government surveillance with the old computer-gone-haywire plot to make - well, not very much, actually.

A by-the-numbers international thriller in the Bourne vein.

Echelon Conspiracy is a more evocative title than a movie this stupid deserves.

In the right hands, this premise might a good movie make -- a fable like Aladdin's lamp updated for the iPhone era. This convoluted and half-baked conspiracy thriller does not.

Apollo Guide

When the only elements that could be called professional are the photography and the poster art, you can consider this a movie only the producer's mother could love.

The movie isn't so much outright bad as it is simply flat and routine.

Audience Reviews for Echelon Conspiracy

I actually like this movie more than the similar plotted Eagle Eye. The acting was much better. In general a world setting is more believable than an U.S. only setting like in Eagle Eye and more interesting. The threat was more believable also. I am gay and will say Tamara Feldman was HOT in her role and kept my attention much more so that the Eagle Eye "heroin"!

What starts as an intriguing thriller quickly devolves into just another movie where suddenly everybody is some sort of covert spy and things blow up. That's okay but if you're looking for anything the least bit original look elsewhere.
