I just recently watched this movie about mental psychic experiments in the army. Now whether or not any of this is true, it was kind of a boring movie. George Clooney plays his role well, but it is still a pretty boring movie without much plot or story to it. I found it to be a waste of time.
The gist of the story is that after the Cold War Russia was supposedly doing psychic experiments on their troops and was trying to create soldiers that could do things above and beyond regular soldiers. So the US Army had to combat this by making their own psychic super soldiers.
They called them Jedi soldiers and the it was the Jedi project – like something straight out of Star Wars and science fiction. Apparently they’re a leader had sampled everything from hippies and pot to who knows what in his quest to figure out a near death vision he had. And in his quest he put together a mental psychic training regimen for soldiers.
I don’t see how that could possibly qualify someone to train soldiers to be psychic. And if psychics really could see and experience things like they supposedly can than you would think that they would be retained on a consulting basis by the army, navy, CIA and other government agencies.
The press would use them so they could know what BS was really occuring at the White House and so they could sift through all the lies. If psychics could really see into another person’s mind and see what they’re thinking then we would’ve long ago known the truth behind the JFK murder, who was really behind the 9/11 tragedy, if President Obama was really born in Africa, etc…
There are thousands of psychics out there today and many proclaim that they can tell the future and see things that most people can’t see. Yet not one of them was able to predict 9/11 before it happened and not one of them can find the missing children on milk cartons. Nor can they find the top 10 most wanted criminals on the FBI most wanted criminal scumbags list.
Whether or not the army truly did do this psychic experimentation with their soldiers or goats I don’t know, but I do know the CIA has done some pretty bizarre experimentation similar to that of Mengele the Nazi witch doctor scientist that was guilty of so many human rights violations that no one knows the real count.
So, it is possible that this wasteful experimentation occurred, but that doesn’t make the movie any better. There are far better movies out there that would be a better way to spend your time.
