Review: Body of Lies

Lies it is. Mainly the trailer, which is so cut up and edited, it seems more than the movie really is. The conflict is not as you expected and is only mild and monotonous. The story isn’t that good either. There’s some drama, but overall, it’s mediocre.
As a drama actor, DiCaprio is okay, and Russell Crowe is cast well as an obnoxious supervisor. The story doesn’t take much out of them though.
Since The Gladiator and Black Hawk Down, it seems Ridley Scott doesn’t seem to be able to make any intense movies anymore (Kingdom of Heaven *yawn*). Will Nottingham be his downfall (a Robin Hood movie) ? 6½.
