Information/Cyber-Operations on Steroids
January 27, 2011
I admire the level of detail by the several top reviews I read here, and enter this review primarily to draw those who follow my work on Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog, to the DVD and the other reviews.
This was the last of five movies I watched over the course of sixteen hours in the air, and it comes very close to making the cut toward six stars. This is–for the intelligence and information professionals–advanced Information Operations and Cyber-Psychological Operations on steroids.
I found the movie compelling. It is not perfect, but Leonardo DeCaprio and the totality of the production easily earn a solid five. This is much more serious than Minority Report (Widescreen Edition). It is not as good as the Seventh Veil [VHS], but for a modern movie exploring levels of consciousness and how to implant, steal, and manipulate ideas inside people over the course of ten years, it is quite worthwhile. I recommend it be watched along with What the Bleep Do We Know!?
