Body of Lies stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a CIA agent Roger Ferris working in the Middle East. Russel Crowe is Ferris' boss Ed Hoffman. They're hunting a terrorist who might as well be Osama, Saddam, whatever.
Roger's plan to catch him gets screwed up and Roger becomes involved with a Jordanian women in the process. There's a lot of trickery between the terrorists, Jordanian intelligence and the C.I.A.
There's a lot of play, almost manipulative on the movies part. There are scenes where Hoffman is talking on a headset to Ferris, while dropping his daughter off at school. It gave a feel like "This is what we do to protect our children".
Not only that, but there's a false flag attack by the United States, posing as terrorists and blowing up a base in Turkey!
The movie comes of kind of bland but still kind of exciting, Leonardo is great but Crowe doesn't really have much character.
Rated: 14-A (ONT) R (USA)
P.S. Ridley Scott does a wonderful job directing.
