Echelon Conspiracy


I had thought that this show was something like the tv series 24 but nope – it was more a thriller/drama.  Not a bad show but quite confusing and the ending well – lets just say wasn’t something I enjoyed.  But nevertheless a movie that can be watched with the entire family.

Max Peterson is a globe-trotting techno-whiz who installs security systems on computers. In the Czech Republic he receives an anonymous gift: a phone which sends messages that enable him to win at a casino. Max soon finds himself pursed by hit men, the casino’s security chief, and a CIA operative. Who’s sending Max messages? Previous recipients of similar windfalls have ended up dead. After a couple of close scrapes, Max realizes he’s in danger, so he tries to find out the root of the conspiracy – which seems to have access to every security camera in the world – before he’s the next victim. Why is this happening to him, and who can he trust?
