This was a very well done docu-drama that provides viewers with a picture of what Snowden, the man, was really all about and the sacrifices he had to make in order to get the truth out about how the US government was spying and collecting data on law abiding citizens of the US , and other countries, without just cause or due process. The movie will really open your eyes to a reality that is quite disturbing.
Excellent movie. JDL is such a talented and versatile actor. The story of Edward Snowden and how his eyes were opened to the corrupt and terrifying underworld of the NSA and CIA. I'm personally thankful for his sacrifice of freedom to show the American people just how corrupt and dishonest the government can be. A democratic government is supposed to protect the values and privacy of its people, not abuse and infiltrate it through their own personal devices. The world needs more transparency and honesty. Thank you to Snowden for being brave enough to stand up for what is right. I guarantee you will cover your devices cameras after seeing his story. Call me paranoid but every single one of my devices has been and will always be covered since I discovered his story.
very good movie
Excellent! Only thing that bugged me was he unnecessary talked in a deep voice and wasn't consistent about it. Oh well. Good movie. Covered a lot that I didn't know.
Cyber security is a part of the future.
The detail is compelling and I might see it again in case I missed things. Appreciate the viewpoint offered on this vital event that turned the tide of American history and its connection up to the present -- a gov't that must keep him a criminal. His remarks about being at peace with himself -- we all strive for such peace. Snowden came into the world with the grit, resilence and depth of soul to see it through. May he have refuge when needed anywhere in the world. May he stay a free man.
This was a great movie. I was shocked that the US government allowed it to be shown. It was interested to see that the producers were not main stream Hollywood movie producers.
The actors in this movie did a great job sharing the fear of what the US government is doing to their own people. Keep making these kind of movies that bring enlightenment of our present situations.
I am a retired golden ager who knows little about computers yet I had no trouble following the technical explanations. The film is excellent, not only does the viewer clearly understand what motivated Snowdon and the personal sacrifices he has made but also appropriately reminds one to question government. Government's role is to create policy which serves the needs of its population, not spy on personal emails or follow private citizens' search engine requests.
This man is a genius he found out what everyone was thinking and he showed it to the world every secret agentcies dirty laundry
