Movie: Lord Of War


Directed by: Andrew Niccol

An interesting film about gun running. Over all I think it was a great idea, with some really clever writing, but again Nicolas Cage's lack of emotion brought the whole thing down a few notches. He acts the same in every movie I've ever seen him in, from Birdy, to Con Air, to the remake of Gone in 60 Seconds. He seems out of it half the time, like he doesn't even know what's going on.

Overall, it's worth renting, but I wouldn't recommend buying it.

Oh, the historical milestones really do add to the film, rather than detract.

Out of 5 stars, I give this film 2.5 or 3
