Fabulous Movie Review©

Body of Lies
Released: 2008
Rating: R (Restricted)
Length: 2 hrs 8 mins
Genre: Action, Suspense
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Alon Aboutboul, Vince Colosimo, Giannina Facio
Directed by: Ridley Scott
Cinematographer: Alexander Witt
Composer: Marc Streitenfeld
An entertaining albeit forgettable espionage film starring the squishy post-modern anti-hero Leonardo DiCaprio, complete with fuzzy facial hair, and my least favorite Australian hothead in a role that would have been perfect for the late J.T. Walsh, Russell Crowe. I must begrudginly admit that Mr. Crowe was pretty good though.

Don't expect to watch this movie and shout to all your neighbors that THIS IS THE GREATEST MOVIE YOU HAVE EVER SEEN, but you will probably look over to the person sitting next to you, or in my case Cat in the Hat and Rocket J. Squirrel, and say, "Not too shabby." Oh and I am contractually obligated to mention that it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than that Syriana snoozefest from the delightfully hatable George Clooney.
7 out of 10 (Good)
