In the time of today’s Middle East crisis Ridley Scott comes with his own version of truths & lies and it’s really worthy to watch film of the year. The film portrays the face of today’s Smart Jihad driven terrorism & how they are outsmarting techno-savvy US intelligence. Its movie about sketchy distorted premise of Middle East crisis & damn good detailing execution of America’s CIA involvement with Ridley Scott’s honest effort.
It’s pathetic to see the waste of such a fine actor like Russel Crowe with often repeated ‘down the specs gesture’ without exploiting even 10% of his talent. But Leonardo DiCaprio has done totally commendable job here & he’s really growing up as more & more refined actor & showing really fine & gritty performances back 2 back after his collaboration with Martin Scorsese (Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed), And he absolutely remains the real scene stealer here whether it’s his restrained romance with nurse or stuck in a situation job of CIA man.
Impressive & engaging drama.
