Echelon Conspiracy, 2009 film starring Shane West, Edward Burns, Ving Rhames and Martin Sheen. With the advent of the net and computers the conspiracy nuts of the world have come up with so many different scenario’s that the governments could use to betray it’s people. This is just such a film.
A young computer genius working abroad gets a free phone delivered to him that secretly sends him text messages. He begins to follow the messages as they have kept him alive and made him some money. Soon, after tangling with the casino boss and the feds he realizes that whoever is behind the phone has a more sinister roll for him and he tries to get out. I wont give up much more if you haven’t seen it even though it was made 8 years ago.
This was a well made spy/conspiracy flick and I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Cast and visuals both good.
