Product description

Product Description

Tense thriller about the arms industry and gun-running, starring Nicolas Cage and Ethan Hawke. Yuri Orlov (Cage) starts his career as an arms dealer on the streets of Little Odessa in the 1980s, selling handguns to mobsters. By the 1990s, after entering into a partnership with an insane African warlord, Orlov is one of the most successful arms dealers in the world. But success comes at a price, as Orlov's career damages his relationships with his wife and his younger brother, and as determined Interpol agent Jack Valentine (Hawke) decides to bring him down. Drunk on his own success and plagued by his inner demons, Orlov spins rapidly out of control.

From Amazon.co.uk

The lethal business of arms dealers provides an electrifying context for the black-as-coal humor of Andrew Niccol's Lord of War. Having proven his ingenuity as the writer of The Truman Show, and writer-director of Gattaca and the under-appreciated Simone, Niccol is clearly striving for Strangelovian relevance here as he chronicles the rise and inevitable fall of Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage), a Ukrainian immigrant to America who makes his fortune selling every kind of ordnance he can get his amoral hands on.

With a trophy wife (Bridget Moynahan) who's initially clueless about his hidden career, and a younger brother (Jared Leto) whose drug-addled sense of decency makes him an ill-chosen accomplice, Yuri traffics in death the way other salesman might push vacuum cleaners (he likes to say that alcohol and tobacco are deadlier products than his), but even he can't deny the sheer ruthlessness of the Liberian dictator (a scene-stealing Eamonn Walker) who purchases Orlov's "products" to expand his oppressive regime. Niccol's themes are even bigger than Yuri's arms deals, and he drives them home with a blunt-force lack of subtlety, but Cage gives the film the kind of insanely dark humour it needs to have. To understand this monster named Yuri, we have to see at least a glimpse of his humanity, which Cage provides as only he can. Otherwise, this epic tale of gunrunnng would be as morally unbearable as the black market trade it illuminates.-- Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.
