Ithis is a career making movie, then its writer/director David O. Russell who deserves the credit with this very creative effort from the debut filmmaker.

Far more intelligent and perceptive than most actioners, yet with enough thrills and spills to satisfy adrenaline junkies.

A damning yet idealistic satire about the motives behind U.S. foreign policy.

(The) screenplay abruptly changes tone after the first half-hour, eventually incorporating some genuinely harrowing sequences... The final picture becomes something noticeably deeper and smarter than its first reels suggest.

Go see it for the effects, action and treasure hunt story, but enjoy the intelligence, too.

A map that leads as near to the Iraqi heart as we can find in American movies.
