Body of Lies, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe now in Theaters

Spill.com, known for its irreverent animated movie reviews, has released a review of the film Body of Lies, an Action/Spy thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe.

Lies, directed by Ridley Scott, is based on the David Ignatius novel of the same name. The plot follows CIA operative Roger Ferris, (DiCaprio) who is sent to Jordan to track down an elusive terrorist by his supervisor, Ed Hoffman (Russell Crowe) who monitors his movements and progress remotely on a giant monitor.

Ferris teams up with the head of the Jordanian General Intelligence Department, Hani Salaam (Mark Strong), to track the terrorist Al-Saleem (Alon Aboutboul) by inventing a fictitious rival terrorist and enlisting the help of an informant with knowledge of Al-Saleem's whereabouts.

The film also stars Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani, Ferris' nurse (and love interest) in Jordan, Oscar Isaac as Bassam, Ferris' translator in Iraq, and Simon McBurney as Garland, the computer genius who aids Ferris and Salaam in their search for Al-Saleem.

Early criticism of Body of Lies has centered on what some feel is a generic, lackluster plot-line and less-than-inspired performances from both DiCaprio and Crowe. Other reviewers, though have been more positive, commenting on the stunning special effects and seamless cinematography as the film's action is divided between suburban Virginia, Jordan, Qatar, Iraq, Dubai, and the Netherlands.

Of course, Spill followers know better than to believe any early hype, positive or negative about any new release until they've gotten the real, unbiased story from the Spill Crew. Remember the Spill motto: "If it's crap, we'll tell you."

This film has been rated R by the MPAA and has a running time of 126 minutes.
