Fresh off of their success with director Martin Scorsese's The Departed, star Leonardo DiCaprio and screenwriter William Monahan team with director Ridley Scott for this screen adaptation of David Ignatius' novel Body of Lies. When CIA operative Roger Ferris (DiCaprio) uncovers evidence indicating that a major terrorist leader may be operating out of Jordan, he enlists the aid of CIA veteran Ed Hoffman (Russell Crowe) in infiltrating the elusive saboteur's vast underground network. During the course of his dangerous mission, Ferris gradually comes to question how much he can trust his presumed allies -- who include not just Hoffman, but the outwardly helpful head of Jordanian intelligence as well. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
Best terrorism movie I have seen to date. Excellent performances by Leo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe. Mind opening movie. This movie demonstrates the intelligence of terrorists and also that Arab nations are also combating terrorism because it is bad for business. This movie also demonstrates how vulnerable we are because we believe in democracy and freedom of information. We will not change our democratic way of life and the terrorists will always be among us. The battle will never end. A fantastic movie.
Being a big Leo Fan he could not do a movie I don't like but this was border line just becuase of the story taking place in other parts of the world which I did not care for easy to get lost in all the political stuff.
