The title of this movie was unique, and not a figure of speech. The Men Who Stare at Goats, literally talking about a man who believes he has a psychic power, which can kill a goat just by staring at the goat. The story about the journalist Bob Wildon (Ewan McGregor) is disappointed that dumped his wife, decided to go to Kuwait and see the Iraq war. Then there he met with Lyn Cassidy (George Clooney). Lyn is behaving very strangely, confessed to Bob, that he never became the American army, special units, which consists of people with supernatural abilities. They called the Jedi Warriors, the supernatural ability to be trained by Bill Django (Jeff Bridges), the founder of these special military units. From here the film begins with very interesting story.

Cuteness and silliness to dominate the dialogue between Bob with Lyn. Most of the dialogue was funny, some are smart enough, and the rest seem sarcastic. Behind the scenes ridiculous, The Men Who Stare at Goats, which was directed by Grant Heslov (Oscar-nominated best writers, for the film Good Night and Good Luck), and lifted from the novel, by Jon Ronson is really having a deep meaning.

In this films, Heslov and scenario writer, Peter Straughan, clearly illustrates that the U.S. military is currently developing a new method to pry information from detainees, suspected of being terrorists. But because the film is packaged in a comedy, with the cover story of the little absurd, Heslov and Straughan like to give comical conclusion in these films.
