I watched Lord of War in the plane on our trip to Pakistan. Yes, I am far behind in my movie reviews.
Lord of War was on a topic made for me. I think the perniciousness of the military hardware industry and dealers (as well as countries) was well on display in the movie and coincided well with my views on the subject.
The movie started out well. However, later it got too clichéd. Instead of making its point subtly or even normally, it decided to hammer it in with a sledgehammer. That didn’t go too well.
Overall, I would rate Lord of War 5/10.
