4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Thriller, 7 April 2009
By 
This review is from: Body Of Lies [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I'm a big fan of DiCaprio as I think he's made a string of excellent films (The Departed, The Aviator etc.). While Body of Lies isn't as good as either of these, it's still a solid effort that keeps you gripped with a plot that ebbs and flows with twist and betrayal across a variety of well-shot locations. The film has enough depth to keep you interested and moves along at a fair pace without seeming over long.

My only big gripe is the annoying American angle on it, whereby every middle-eastern character after 2 sentences of arabic (to give it "realism") suddenly bursts into perfect English. Iraqi insurgents, Jordanian secret service, ultra-secretive terrorist leaders, no-one is immune!

Probably not one for the collection, but definitely worth a rental or 2nd hand buy.
