The Psychic Military: Soldiers or Jedi Warriors?
The Men Who Stare at Goats
This motion picture, featuring fine acting spectacles from George Clooney and Ewan McGregor, is about a reporter who uncovers a strange story when meeting special forces agent for the United States Army. The agent reveals the existence of a secret, psychic military unit whose goal is to end war as we know it. This group claims to share similarities to fictional characters known as the Jedi, as many men claim to have mind reading abilities, the ability to use telekinesis, and the ability to persuade the human mind. The founder of the unit has gone missing and the trail leads to another psychic soldier who has distorted the mission to serve his own ends.
It seems like there is a lot of hype about this movie, as many people have started rating the film. IMDB users have rated this 8.2 out of 10 with a total of 288 votes. The film also jumped up by 38% popularity on the site. Looks like George Clooney still has some acting potential left in him.
The Men Who Stare at Goats is set to release November 6, 2009.
