PerfectionBy DirtyHarry (104 reviews) from HARROGATE , 17 Oct 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]Non-stop drama as events unfold. Say what you want, but please don't label this as more US propaganda material. It is unbiased and open in its approach, and is quite revealing in portraying both sides of the story in telling what resources (and deceipt) go into tracking terrorist cells and what very likely happens politically behind closed doors. Leonardo DiCaprio finally came of age in Blood Diamond, and here he just gets better, and more convincing. Job well done!

unmemorableBy a customer from Bourne , 22 Oct 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideOddly I don`t really recall much that occurred during the film (I watched it a few weeks ago). I tend to think this means I wasn`t that overawed by it. The content is normally something that interests me, seeing different sides of what goes into tracking down terrorist cells etc. and Leonardo played a good part but I just wasn`t that struck by the film. Although I followed the plot, my partner kept getting confused which didn`t help. Not impressed by the once again theme seen in many films of `hard man falls in love with girl and it gets him in hot water` which is totally against what would happen if the situation arose in reality. All in all ok to watch but I can`t say I`d have missed out if I`d not seen it.
Very Good FilmBy Laineyr76 (65 reviews) from Cambridge , 20 Oct 2009Hadn't heard much about this film and once it began I thought 'oh no not more films on terrorists', but I was pleasantly surprised.
Becoming quite a Leo fan, his last few films have been very strong watches and shown his versatility as an actor
Body of LiesBy a customer from Fleet , 19 Oct 2009I was terrified throughout this film. Full of deceipt with horrendous consequences for many. It made me feel quite sick. However it was a really good film and was believable. It is one of those that stays with you for a while. My husband was equally riveted which is quite a rarity! Leonardo and Russell were both very good in their different ways.
Body of LiesBy a customer from Lincoln , 18 Oct 2009A great film, a little too honest, close to the bone but it grips you through out the film and well worth renting!
