Print
Reporter Bob Wilton is trying to lose himself in the romance of war after his marriage fails. He gets more than he bargains for when he meets a special forces agent who reveals the existence of a secret, military unit whose goal is to end war as we know it. With unparalleled psychic powers, they can read the enemy's thoughts, pass through solid walls, and even kill a goat by simply staring at it. Now, 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.

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.

Don't watch this film unless you wanna be totally gay.

Really enjoyed the first hour of this movie, the last half is ok but drags. Ewan and George are great together. A fun movie crazy movie. Worth watching.

10/10 one of those movies you never forget and appreciate having seen in the first place.

remarkable cast with remarkable stories to tell.

I read the book and loved it, so, inevitably I guess, I was disappointed by the movie. It "Hollywood-ized" the story by falsely inserting a happy ending (sort of), when in fact, like many true stories, there is no pat feeling of closure. Sometimes, nobody really knows what happened to the goats...

You have George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges, and Kevin Spacey in a movie together where there exists a faction in the U.S. Army dedicated to psychic warfare. The premise alone explains why you should check this film out.

Without a doubt, “The Men Who Stare at Goats” has a stellar cast. Even so, some stories are better left untold.

One of those movies you really like because of its quirkiness or really dislike because of its quirkiness.

I selected this one based on the cast. I was unpleasantly surprised. Dull, ridiculous.
