Lord of War Reviews

Page 1 of 8
Nick Rogers

A carefully choreographed devil's dance in which Nicolas Cage finds fleet-footed rejuvenation as a man aware evil can't exist without good, but that evil often wins. This uniquely unsympathetic, world-weary film earns the right to fling that truth.

A fine, grown-up movie, half thriller, half black comedy.

The movie ultimately crushes itself in a vise of self-loathing.

Niccol is no stranger to hot-button issues, but he outdoes his previous efforts by injecting this satire of war profiteering in the Halliburton age with a wicked arsenic wit.

I'm beginning to get discouraged about Andrew Niccol.

Satire is rarely so hard-hitting, or high calibre.

This film fails so miserably don't be surprised to find yourself often rooting against the supposed good guy.

That the CIA engages in these activities with all sorts of Orlovs no doubt slithering around in the mix somewhere, is a far more intriguing huge chunk of vital information that sadly never made it to the screen.

ELord Of War drops the hammer slowly, laying out the fascinating parameters of Cage's world before opening up its argument in an astonishing denouement.

Lord of War has a surreal edge, despite being enmeshed in world events, with absurdity and dark humor laced throughout.

Una película frívola y superficial sobre un tema serio e importante como el tráfico de armas. Entretiene, pero como denuncia cínica se queda corta.

The movie's too flippant for good drama and not funny enough for satire, but the morbidly fascinating subject and Cage's reptilian performance hold our interest.

Impressive performances, fascinating info-bytes and pertinent editorial, but in the end, it feels too much like an illustrated lecture.

The film's approach to violence is unflinching: this is what poor people are doing to each other with the guns the West sells them, it screams -- but there's no suggestion it might be stopped, or slowed.

The film is totally engaging, even though not always on an emotional level; there are so many issues striding through the screenplay it's hard to relate too closely to Yuri, although there are moments.

Unlike most Hollywood movies being made today, Lord of War actually has something to say even though it goes about saying it clumsily . . .

Niccol seems to have bitten off more than he can chew here, substituting feverishness for character development...

The high point is Niccol's script, which turns weighty subject matter into dark comedy.

This film entertained me throughout, but it also provided me with a truly insightful look at the amoral world of trading man-killers.

O anti-herói complexo oferece ao brilhante roteiro a oportunidade de analisar, de forma inventiva e fascinante, o mercado negro (abastecido por grandes governos) das armas de fogo.
