The New Yorker
A raffishly ironic and insinuating movie--and probably the most sheerly enjoyable film of the year so far.

Lord of War skims along like a dance routine. Political morality doesn't usually get such fleet choreography in the movies.

This is the story of an immensely successful fictional gunrunner played by Nicolas Cage. It is a very enjoyable movie, it's witty and exciting and at times a bit grim. Enjoy the great one liners, but don't expect a unique view on the moral dilemma's...

Lord of War is one of those movies that I enjoyed, but I can?t seem to figure out why. The story never seems to know which direction it?s headed in, and the tone of the film is all over the place. But the acting is great, and even though nothing...

Man, there's alot of action in this movie. From the very beginning when he's a small-time gunrunner, up to the end where even the government is protecting him, it's alot of fun to watch Nicolas Cage's Yuri stay one step ahead of Ethan Hawke's Jack...

"Lord of War" is at once somber and full of black humor. As we watch the rise of an international arms dealer who profits from the misery and death of others, we're given many reminders of who the biggest arms dealers of all are and how they all...

Everybody's living their own war for money and power… Nobody cares about anyone else and there's no stopping it. I liked this film and its powerful messages.
