Body of Lies

Thriller . Drama . Action . Romance

Body of Lies follows CIA operative, Roger Ferris, as he uncovers a lead on a major terrorist leader suspected to be operating out of Jordan. When Ferris devises a plan to infiltrate his network, he must first win the backing of cunning CIA veteran Ed Hoffman and the collegial, but perhaps suspect, head of Jordanian intelligence.

More Info:
  • Perry Seibert

    The crisply photographed and edited Body of Lies reveals some ambition, for while it certainly works as pure entertainment, this tale of a good man trying to extract himself from an impossible situation offers some commentary on America's feelings about being in Iraq.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Body of Lies neither panders nor condescends. It involves current events and has a political viewpoint, but it overplays neither.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Its generic attributes (and title) notwithstanding, Scott's film may be the sharpest of all the post-9/11 thrillers--and also the most purely entertaining--in the way it maps the vectors and currents of the modern intelligence-gathering game without losing us in its dense narrative thicket.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The result is commendably non-West-centric, but no less sentimentally conceived.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Body of Lies is a James Bond plot inserted into today's headlines. The film wants to be persuasive in its expertise about modern spycraft, terrorism, the CIA and Middle East politics. But its hero is a lone ranger who operates in three countries, single-handedly creates a fictitious terrorist organization, and survives explosions, gunfights, and brutal torture.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Fascinating and flawed spy thriller.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    It's a genre film - the action is fierce and nonstop - with a brooding undercurrent of unease that aims for the complexities of John le Carre.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Leonardo DiCaprio brings straight-razor reflexes and rooted emotion to the role of a deceptively rugged CIA man.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • William Arnold

    As good as it is in pieces, its protagonists are distancing, its story is tangled, its film-noir cynicism is oppressive and unglamorous, and it just doesn't leave us with the satisfying unity of the kind of great movie it wants to be.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    It's not like the screens are so flooded with decent movies that we couldn't use another, particularly a timely, clear-eyed thriller about the Middle East and the role of the U.S. therein.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    It may not be as much fun as old spy movies starring Cary Grant or more recent entertainments such as "Spy Game," directed by Ridley's brother Tony, but it feels all too accurate.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Always crisp and watchable. But as the film's episodic story gradually reveals itself, it ends up too unconvincing and conventional to consistently hold our attention.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    With its urgent post-9/11 context and often brutal violence, it seems off-key to describe Body of Lies as a nifty political thriller, but that's what it is.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Denby

    The movie is smart and tightly drawn; it has a throat-gripping urgency and some serious insights, and Scott has a greater command of space and a more explicit way with violence than most thriller directors.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Ftrangely emotionless. There's little offered in the form of rooting interests or compassionate characterizations, making the film ultimately as ephemeral as its title.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Doesn't have much new to offer in either style or substance. It's got the same glossy-gritty urban warfare sheen as "Black Hawk Down" and every other Third-World geopolitical action thriller of the last few years.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The most interesting thing about this slick but frustrating picture is the way it puts Crowe’s Hoffman at the center of our mixed feelings.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    It's a generic, clunky title. The movie isn't quite as disposable, but it's not exactly memorable, either.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    A tautly paced, well-acted espionage thriller with the requisite explosions and action sequences. Still, it ends up leaving the viewer rather cold.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Scott doesn't bring much to the table as an action director, and his keen storytelling abilities go invisible here.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The romance seems tacked on as a way to humanize this character; there's no reason the nurse would take up with a brash, secretive American.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The film has one indelible asset: Mark Strong, who plays the Jordanian spymaster Hani. He's sleek and lounge-lizard sharp like a young Andy Garcia, and he could be bigger than Garcia. The Jordanian holds all the cards, and opposite two superstars, Strong is the only actor who holds the camera.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Aside from a nifty new way to avoid surveillance in the middle of the desert, there's nothing here we haven't seen in many other movies - including "Spy Game," directed by Scott's brother Tony before 9/11.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Lacks, a story that makes it feel personal.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The sickly feeling that Body of Lies leaves at its conclusion isn't just about the brutality of its subject; it's the realization that real-life barbarism translates so easily into adrenaline kicks for the multiplex.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    As it is, the movie is a hodgepodge of borrowings and half-cooked ideas, flung together into a feverishly edited jet-setting exercise in purposeless intensity.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    DiCaprio and Crowe, two supposedly high-wattage movie stars, are remarkably dull to watch together--perhaps because so many of their scenes together take place over the phone.

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    In all, Body of Lies is a mixed bag of treats and trials, but it should be seen by audiences, and emulated and improved upon by other top directors.

    Time Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A mostly formulaic approach that becomes more disappointing as the yarn unwinds.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    For all of Ferris's desperate struggles, and for all the director's efforts to emulate the remarkable verisimilitude he achieved in "Black Hawk Down," his new film remains abstract and unaffecting. It's a study in semisimilitude, more Google-Earthly than grounded in feelings.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Like Scott's last picture, "American Gangster," this is a little too slick and commanding for its own good; despite Crowe and DiCaprio's best efforts, their characters keep getting flattened by the steamroller narrative.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It's a lot easier to follow than "Syriana." But intelligibility is about the only thing this international thriller has going for it.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    It's like torture, though Body of Lies has nothing to spill.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Depressingly inert.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    For all the enthralling visuals and action, the film feels garbled.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Excessively intricate and extremely dull, the latest example of a filmmaker giving us a disjointed, overlong movie that’s unnecessarily confusing to follow. Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Most of this just seems, you know, so three years ago, so "Bourne" again.
