    Usually movies are reflective of the times in the nation, while I think it is pretty obvious, does anyone expect the movie to touch upon drones, terrorism (again!) ,government execution of suspects without trial, etc.?

    Good question. AOE may touch on those topics in a non-obvious way, though, using the elements of the story to do so-kinda like how George Lucas touched on the patriot act in the last Star Wars prequel.
