A compelling, nail-biting spy thriller.

It has none of the sweep of, say, Syriana, as if that mattered to the audience it's gunning for.

Russell Crowe has finally realised he's just an ordinary fat guy now, and taken a role he can accurately portray.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Body of Lies is an extremely well paced, tightly wound, and intensely violent thriller. There is no damnation or congratulations here. As Russell Crowe muses as the end: "No one is innocent"

...[Ridley] Scott's most entertaining and involving effort since 2001's Black Hawk Down.

It doesn't help that those action scenes all blend together, relying overmuch on speeding convoys of big black SUVs and surveillance planes that can see you picking your nose from miles up.

Visually, the film is quite striking. Few modern filmmakers handle desert landscapes as well as Mr. Scott.

Short on thrills and shorter on political insights

Window to the Movies

A certain rawness and despairing urgency is never quite achieved for the message the film wants to deliver, and so it remains a well-intentioned, well-produced, yet generally unmemorable entertainment.

Passable entertainment -- but definitely not on par with the usual DiCaprio, Crowe, or Ridley Scott output.

Apollo Guide

For those of us who want movies to be about something and not just empty action with minimal shallow 'moral of the story' tacked on, Body of Lies is a disappointment.

If you're going to have a mall-ready entertainment about the war on terror, you might as well have this one. [Blu-ray]

When Russell Crowe gives a lackluster performance, you know how meager a year it's been at the movies. In Body of Lies, Crowe is bogged down in a thankless role in a thankless movie.

Básicamente un buen film de entretenimiento sobre un tema "serio" como el combate al terrorismo, armado de manera eficaz aunque superficial.

Como diversão, Rede de Mentiras merece aplausos. Isto não impedirá, claro, que ele seja relegado ao esquecimento completo dentro de poucos anos.

Better than the vast majority of the post-9/11 terrorist yarns, Body of Lies is both more ambiguous and ambitious than such heavy-handed duds as Rendition and Redacted.

Perhaps Scott's ever-restless shooting style doesn't quite differentiate between the peaks and troughs of the narrative, yet it's still an engrossing account of the intersection between process and ethics.

Like Syriana without either the balls or the brains, Body Of Lies is perfectly presentable. You just expect better from the likes of Leo, Russ and Ridley.

Times [UK]

But despite the immaculate production values, the satire is so unspeakably crude that it ceases to matter. A shame. Scott has been an instrumental director in the Hollywood evolution of war films. But Body of Lies is a one-note rant.
