A machine gun fire of clichés

This movie is lost time and overrated. I saw the first half hour and I am particularly annoyed that you have to accept everything for true. The structure of the story is miserable. The main character played by Nicolas Cage sells weapons but it is not clear where they come from. He has customers all over the world from shadowy areas to which he can deliver weapons. Never is clear how he get this customers. He has an unstable brother with whom he cooperates and who can not bear the wealth when they have succes. He goes to the coke and then goes downhill with him. He tries to help him with a lot of tearjerking brotherlove. An other thing, he gets a handsome woman who does not find his work completely pure and suffers from remorse. This problem also must be resolved. In short, this movie has a machine gun fire of clichés whereby the critical film viewer has dropped out before the end

Just An Incredibly Well Made Film

Apart from the very serious topic, this is just an incredibly well made film. There are many scenes in this movie which stay with you long after the credits have rolled, the darkly funny ones as well as the truly horrific ones, and to me this is something only the best movies ever achieve. Intelligent and stylish: this is one of very few so called "films with a message" that I can watch again and again, because it's so cleverly constructed and so beautifully shot and acted. A personal favorite, 10 stars out of 10.

In Fall 2005, Lionsgate film distribution, founded in 1962 Montreal, Canada presents this crime-drama meet dark-satire-indulging genre mix to a surprisingly-prevailing original directorial effort by auteur Andrew Niccol, known for "Gattaca" (1997), who takes this movie-owning, towering actor Nicolas Cage as Ukranian immigrant to the U.S. Yuri Orlov moving around the globe as weaponry/armory trading entrepreneur starting out with tight corner New York neighborhood trades on minor half-automatic pistols, revolvers and their caliber-ranging ammunition before filling whole ocean tankers with warlord-merchandise from a dissolving U.S.S.R. (1922-1991) to constant-shifting no-surprises quality cinematography by Amir Mokri, who hit his peak with visualizing "Man of Steel" directed by Zack Snyder, when "Lord of War" utilizes skillfully voice-over-indulging "Goodfellas" homages to entertaining as controversy scenes of African Sierra Leone backyard trading warlord Baptiste Senior, with full convictions shot-on-sight performance by Eamonn Walker, and his Rambo-movie-loving Junior, when Yuri Orlov convinces not only the top-modeling character of Ava Fontaine, portrayed by good-face-given Bridget Moynahan, to further overpowering accelerations of Yuri's brother Vitaly bringing support as conflict to full-throttle entertainment sharing 115-Minute-Editorial by Academy-Award-winning editor Zach Staenberg, when "Lord of War" becomes an underrated modern classic of what cinema can do on audience's mind-setting consumptions to witness a devastatingly honest scene of power-struck, boundaries-overtaking conversation between Nicolas Cage and Ethan Hawke, who puts out an remarkable pushing as struggling nemesis-character as Interpol special agent Jack Valentine.
