as an 85 year old person it iis hard to see politicians making decisions like they do..perhaps a draft for their own sons would affect their decisions.

I just finished watching this so very real movie. It is not fluff. This is a movie for all of us. The message is there for all of us. I love the last part when professor is telling the complaciant student , the decsions we make now can't be altered later and define who we become. I cried, I got angry and I felt gratitude that someone is willing to say it like it is. Thank you Mr Redford.

I just watched "Lions for Lambs" at times standing up tensely for those willing to stand in harms' way for us .... its not trite, its real, visceral, needed. Acting on convictions instead of taking the easy way out. And definitely a movie to thoughtfully watch again.

Lions for Lamb is one of my favorite films I've seen at this moment. Robert Redford delivers a powerhouse performace, Meryl Streep gives a high flawless performance, and Im not a big Tom Cruise fan, but He gave a good performance, but at the same time, trying too hard to make his role so convincing. As far as the movie, I loved this movie. I loved every moment in the film, and the film was
