"DICAPRIO'S IN TOP FORM. CROWE IS A LIVE WIRE."
-Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE
The CIA's hunt is on for the mastermind of a wave of terrorist attacks. Roger Ferris is the agency's man on the ground, moving from place to place, scrambling to stay ahead of ever-shifting events. An eye in the sky - a satellite link - watches Ferris. At the other end of that real-time link is the CIA's Ed Hoffman, strategizing events from thousands of miles away. And as Ferris nears the target, he discovers trust can be just as dangerous as it is necessary for survival.
Leonardo DiCaprio (as Ferris) and Russell Crowe (as Hoffman) star in Body Of Lies, adapted by William Monahan (The Departed) from the David Ignatius novel. Ridley Scott (American Gangster, Black Hawk Down) directs this impactful tale, orchestrating exciting action sequences and plunging viewers into a bold spy thriller for our time.
A good movie that is entertaining and well acted, but is far from being anything particularly noteworthy on the resumes of its stars or director.
