A compelling, nail-biting spy thriller.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

Elliott Noble
Sky Movies

With high-class acts to match the hi-tech savvy of Scott and his trusty crew (cinematographer Alexander Witt, editor Pietro Scalia, composer Mark Streitenfeld), this is as taut and engrossing a couple of hours as you'll experience all year.

Total Film

Syriana, this ain't. Ridley Scott's latest misses the scope, texture or depth to dig into the moral mess of the war on terror. But this entertaining techno-thriller feeds greedily off star performances from Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Strong.

Daily Mail [UK]

Body Of Lies lacks the epic sweep of Gladiator and the emotional pull of Thelma And Louise. But it's enormously competent, with a couple of fine supporting performances from Crowe and Strong.
