Jon Ronson in his non-fiction book with the same title told of coming upon a secret branch of the U S military involved in New Age-style paranormal research. Critical opinion has divided about how successfully this notion, including, yes, killing by staring, has been turned into a fictional movie. The 'crazy comedy of military madness' (Philip French, The Observer) has a high-class cast: Ewan MacGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges are all present and correct.
The movie has one big element in its favor, and that's George Clooney, who is as good here as he's ever been.
