Niccol's look into the dark world of international weapons trade says guns are evil but its vivid imagery suggests something very different. Yuri Orlov (Cage), a Ukrainian immigrant living in Manhattan, would like to put a gun in the hand of every person on the planet. Aided in business by his brother Vitally (Leto) and pursued by Interpol agent Valentine (Hawke), Yuri slickly operates in his frightening underworld of bloody regional conflict. His fabulous life is fueled by profits extracted from the ever-growing stack of dead bodies. Cage's performance is at the center of a satisfying movie experience.

Lord of War
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

Lord of War came out in 2005. It has a running time of 122 minutes. It might sound like a long movie but there’s non-stop action throughout the whole movie. I really like this movie. Nicolas Cage (as Yuri Orlov) and Jared Leto (as Vitaly Orlov) star in Lord of War. Yuri Orlov and his brother sell guns all over the world. His job is rather secretive. Already knowing all the damage and conflict he’s contributing through his selling of gun, he does it anyway. Now, he’s being pursued by an agent to stop and bust him, he has to find ways to avoid him.

This movie was very good in my opinion. It had a lot of action. I thought Nicolas Cage did a great job. He plays a man who sells guns all over while an agent is trying to bust him. Theres a bit of comedy but this is definitely an action film. I'd say it's more of a guy flick, but I know of some girls who've enjoyed watching it.
