    Echelon Conspiracy is a more evocative title than a movie this stupid deserves. show more

    There's nothing in Echelon Conspiracy as suspenseful or entertaining as your average episode of "24." show more

    All Echelon can offer is some wobbly action and views of Red Square. show more

    Given the passivity of computer use, the "hacker thriller" is film history's great running joke, but special attention should go to Echelon Conspiracy's authors for conceiving a climax that tries to juice tension out of someone using a search engine and staring at a download countdown. show more

    Unlike, say, "Eagle Eye," Echelon Conspiracy doesn't put enough conviction behind its stupidity. It's mostly just bland. show more

    Ehhhh, it was ok. It got suspenseful for awhile, but I felt something was missing and could've been a better movie if the plot was a lot bigger than something so simple. I'm only giving it 3-stars because it got me going from the beginning.

    Bourne Fan: I consider myself a fan of action-thriller-espionage movies. This was a stinker. I mean its not worth it even if you are really bored.

    This was an excellent movie. I and my wife were impressed by the long cast of veteran actors. The plot and acting was good. There was an unexpected twist at the end. The plot reminded me of a Startrek episode with the M5 computer and parts of "Colossus, the Forbin Project" of many years back. We need more movies to be made as well as this one. If you don't see it, you'll be sorry. Those reviewers who reported they didn't like it seemed to have an agenda or were just having a bad day.

    A really crappy version of 'Eagle Eye' which was stole its story from a way better X-Files episode in the 7th Season (I think).

    horrible movie. pathetic acting. The viewers never really engage w/ the story or characters. This is a remake of some movie but I can't put my finger on takes on mind of it's own, blah, blah, blah.

    This movie seemed okay at the beginning. The acting wasn't great but the story showed some promise...then it turned into a big pile of anti-Bush, anti-patriot act, anti-America, pro-Putin, pro-Russia garbage. It was a total propaganda piece. I feel practically feel guilty for having contributed money towards it.
