Lord of war food for thought - Lord of War review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
27/07/2007

If you are expecting an action packed fight fest forget it. If you are expecting a laugh out loud comedy thriller, well the comedy is there but it's definitely got a dark vein of humour running through it.

If you are expecting a dramatic film that's going to leave you thinking then this is it.

Nicholas Cage is on cracking form in this film about a gun runner, selling arms to the highest bidder, to men in the most volatile and bloody regions of the world.

So successful is he, that despite all the wealth it brings him, it costs him far far more in a personal way and leaves him walking a dangerous line.

Married with a kid and the government after him, can he survive rival businessmen, war zones and personal crisis?

His character is hard to consider as a hero, and yet there is a chord of sympathy struck for Cages character in this first rate, well directed and beautifully shot film.

But the cage isn't the only reason why this film will stick in the memory for a long time after watching, because it highlights the hypocriscy of governments and politics in a way that few other movies do.

Rent it and think about the films message which is, what's more important, profit or lives?

Thought provoking and chilling, if I could award movies oscars, this would get one from me for being one of the best movies I've seen in recent months.

Surprisingly good view on the arms trade. - Lord of War review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

If you're expecting a big budget crime/action thriller about an arms dealer you're going to be disappointed. 'Lord of War' is very similar in tone to the Richard Linklater film 'Fast Food Nation' in which a character based drama is used to highlight the moral ambiguity of an industry. The film charts the rise of Yuri Orlov a Ukrainian born American small arms trader who grows rich after the end of the cold war by selling ex-soviet arms to third world African dictators and warlords. Set over a number of years the film, part narrated by the character of Yuri, explores his life, his personal relationships, his constant pursuit by Interpol agents trying monitor illegal arm trades and his personal demons which question the morality of his business. Expertly written, well directed and with a surprisingly good performance from Nicolas Cage this is well worth a rental.
