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.

  • 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.

    Jul 15, 2009 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie isn't so much outright bad as it is simply flat and routine.

    Interesting, reminds me a lot of Eagle Eye. Pretty entertaining, but my two problems with this are with the way it is filmed, and paced (to some extent). During a lot of the action sequences, there's a lot of annoying jerky camera movements. Plus there's a couple of action scenes that are really unnecessary to the film, especially this boring 10 minute car chase in the middle. Aside from that it's a fun film to watch.

    Eagle eye clone but this has some terrible plotting. Would of enjoyed this more if the lead role wasn't so miscast. it is a giant turkey of a movie with nothing to recommend it.

    (2009 Director: Greg Marcks) Surprisingly interesting mystery with mystery beginning from the ground up. [more review to follow]

    The basic premise was interesting, and then this film bogged down in a pedestrian mire of contrived, trite, formulaic caricatures and cliches.
