Body of Lies Reviews

    The performances are good and the action scenes are well done, but for most of the movie I wasn't really interested in the story and it felt like it was longer than than it actually was. Not bad, but not very memorable for me.

    Body of Lies isn't quite as good as DiCaprio's similar thriller Blood Diamond. But Russel Crowe and Ridley Scott help make sure that it doesn't fall too short.

    there are few good parts with some great action and suspense but they're few and far between. The overall theme is Muddy and I found myself going to a review site to figure out what the hell it's supposed to be all about. I ended up giving up on it after one of the third of the way through and decided to watch Lord of the Rings instead.

    DiCaprio is easily the highlight of the film. Scott directs some thrilling action and intense interrogation scenes, but the movie otherwise is quite boring. A love story becomes central in the second act that isn’t necessary.
