A real sleeper. Crowe and DiCaprio are super as expected.....But Mark Strong really makes the movie with his acting. Highly believable. Seems as real as it gets !

A real action thriller that shows both ugly sides in this current event. Worth seeing and intense.

Who knows what's going on in this movie? Another one with a lot of action and noise, but no logical, accessible plot. If you can form a thought, you won't like it.

The New York Times
As it is, the movie is a hodgepodge of borrowings and half-cooked ideas, flung together into a feverishly edited jet-setting exercise in purposeless intensity. Full Review

Washington Post
With its urgent post-9/11 context and often brutal violence, it seems off-key to describe Body of Lies as a nifty political thriller, but that's what it is. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
A tautly paced, well-acted espionage thriller with the requisite explosions and action sequences. Still, it ends up leaving the viewer rather cold. Full Review
Dana Stevens
DiCaprio and Crowe, two supposedly high-wattage movie stars, are remarkably dull to watch together--perhaps because so many of their scenes together take place over the phone. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Body of Lies neither panders nor condescends. It involves current events and has a political viewpoint, but it overplays neither. Full Review
