On "Body of Lies"
From The Dispatch:
But overall, the action sequences lack pizzazz and feel decidedly old-hat for Scott. It's almost as if another director is trying to imitate his style instead of the work of Scott himself. What we end up with is a perfectly adequate and perfectly unextraordinary thriller that goes through all the perfunctory motions without so much as bothering to offer either a clear point of view or a complex moral dilemma. Add to that an undercooked romance between DiCaprio and an Iranian nurse, and you have a recipe where all the ingredients are in place, but the final product doesn't quite taste as good as it ought to.Click here to read my full review.
