The Manchurian Candidate (2004 version, Netflix streaming)

In the midst of the Gulf War, soldiers are kidnapped and brainwashed for sinister purposes.

Tinfoil hats on, anti-government mistrust in full force, and lots of money being paid out. Go.

Took a bit for me to get into, but rather meh movie overall. For the tinfoil hat movies, I think Enemy Of The State was quite a bit better. It was a bit more plausible, even as over the top it presented itself. Denzel plays the calm, cool character that you should probably listen to, Jon Voight is not as MUCH of a dick as he usually is, and Liev Schreiber is the dry personality that actually is an okay guy. Any of those sound familiar? ;)

I was curious about the movie, and it satisfied my curiosity. That’s about it.
