Lord of War

Lord of War (2005)

Lately, Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage) has had some misgivings about his day job. As the world's leading arms dealer, he's embraced the glamorous profession so soundly that it's hard to let it go. The thing is, if he wants to dodge the cunning Interpol agent (Ethan Hawke) on his trail, he'll have to let go. Writer-director Andrew Niccol helms this taut action-thriller co-starring Jared Leto, Bridget Moynahan and Donald Sutherland.
My Two Cents: Downward sprial biopic ala Blow/Goodfellas, but proves truth is a little more compelling than historical fiction

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 7/10


Porter's Two Cents: Cage's usual overacting works well. Well done but kind of preachy at end. Rest of cast did well and nice direction.

IMDB Rank: Really Liked It

Robert's Two Cents: Preposterously Asinine.

NetFlix Rank: Hated It
