Review: Syriana

A pretty serious movie about not very much actually. The trailer makes it look like a deep intricate drama thriller, but when you’re in the movie theatre, it doesn’t feel that thrillery or dramary at all. The multiple story line converging style doesn’t seem to work either. With Magnolia clocking in at three hours, it made perfect sense. With this movie running at two hours, it feels too long (you’ll notice it already during the start and first half). Something as valuable as oil can drive whole goverments and big companies to the dark side, but this movie doesn’t display anything new or surprising, and only shows the few obvious and predictable moves everyone expects (in a slowmotion kind of way, that is).6-.
