By chance I stumbled on a"Lord of war", because it the First channel was chosen for displaying a quiet Saturday night. The evening really turned on surprisingly quiet, so much so that when watching this Thriller main goal was not sleep hold up interchanges boring plot.

Us, Russian, always fun to watch over the efforts of foreigners more to get into our skin, but when a Russian officer Dmitry calls a Russian speculator, "Mr. Yuri", it is, to put it mildly. About Russian Mat nothing can, translation was duplicated.

Nicolas cage — character actor, but here is the charisma from it is completely absent (do not believe — compare with same Jared Leto, without the discounts visual appeal of the latter). I have no doubt in his talent, but... Yuri Orlov is just terrible, in every sense. I would like to recall another one work by cage — in the movie "Happy event", which we also suggested TV at this week. Not the topic a little bit, but that movie it was nice to watch, there had an idea cage there was quite different. Maybe all the case in that here the main character — not just a banal villain, but the villain without the meaning of life. Others at least the world want to capture or a new world war to inflame, and this does not necessary. to be honest, I its incredibly sorry. but help does not want.

Don't know, a strange impression the movie left. "Evil wins" — is it such slogans should sound screens?! Then why to fight and why to remove all the remaining world the movies, who say what hope dies last?! not understand.

Emigrants from Eastern Ukraine, move to the residence United States settle lead your little ones at the same time impersonating the Jews, business. Just say — the film very much: a competent satire, black humor, balancing each other, these fundamental components that make the success of this, of course, outstanding tape. Based on the events took place in real life, the picture tells the story, albeit somewhat veiled, about the cold war between the great powers on the fall of the human spirit in the system, that some of the events and phenomena in our lives, cannot be prevented.

Yuri Orlov nothing is able to do, like only sell the death. He knows that. Shame, conscience, honour — do, torture if those invented by humanity concepts? The answer will find everyone for itself. Talent Director Andrew Nicola, on a second screenwriter, the legendary satire "the Truman Show", on my opinion is revealed here in full. The bloody dictator of the impoverished country, or rival at Simon business wise, the main thread of the narrative, is a line across the horizon of human relationships, sometimes putting personal interests above public. The author, showing the Russian warehouses, bursting with unused weapons, such as it tells us, asks — " society and democracy, gave us they nurtured Communist slogans, where we now to go, any ideals to achieve?" Yuri Orlov as not suffering such theories. He knows what is coming.

Cage have coped with the role fairly complex, relatively well, in any case, positive impressions of its games are remembered. It is important. Jared Leto. Why is this fellow difficult to understand. Even in the film "Requiem for a dream", which is considered a cult by many, this may say the actor, not have shown themselves in any way. So here. We know in advance its response, it is predictable. The character Ethan Hawke, in films of this kind an integral part of the narrative. Clumsy and callous, almost removes the points, he pursues our hero almost the whole of the picture. The representative of the Western justice — the antithesis of the East, good way the "loyalty" indicator, on which saying with a grin our Western brothers.

Summary: the cold war is not over, gentlemen. Great tape not understand why, and with what limits and part, criticized by many "experts" from the world of cinema.. Watch for all fans of cage, and also a satire on the theme of relations between East and West.
