Macovei's Review of Lord of War
Lord of War(2005)
"I have failed at everything, Yuri... but I won't fail as a human being"
The problems that this movie speaks about are definitely more serious than the movie itself.But I guess that it was never meant to be too serious, since Nicolas Cage is playing the main character.
Besides the obvious message that this movie delivers about war, crimes gun-traffic, violence, I see in this story what defines a big majority of us like "men". We get a job that we think is going to bring us big money, we want more with the more we have, we get involved with all our mind and body in the business, and we forget about our wife, our children. We run for this fake pleasures until we get tired, old and realize that the life passed and we didn't live it.
The most important thing you need to know about this movie is that it will not make you feel good, though you'll love it.
