Ever since it was announced that Guy Ritchie would be hailing as the director of a 'Sherlock Holmes' movie, I was excited. While the guy can't grasp the ability to write a good script, he has shown promise as a director, and I was anxious to see the end result. Speculation arose when the film was pushed back to a Christmas Day opening, and I can honestly say that come November, my excitement had dwindled a bit. So, when I stepped into the theater, I was prepared for the worst - a preparation that was mindlessly wasted.

Body of Lies

score: 
C+
Director: 
Ridley Scott
Cast: 
Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Mark Strong, Golshifteh Farahani
Running Time: 
128
Rated: 
R
Anytime you put three such names as DiCaprio, Crowe and Scott on a single poster, buzz and hype are sure to accumulate. There is no exception with Body of Lies, a political thriller that has as much promise as star power. Unfortunately, even though DiCaprio gives a stellar performance as Roger Ferris, a CIA operative stationed in Jordan, the film fails to materialize, falling short of expectations as it is unable to register with the audience or provide for an entertaining escape.
