While it certainly looked interesting, the story unfortunately uses a lot of words to say nothing new.

I'm voting 2/10 because of Redford's direction of Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise; I found their characters very believable and found the casting perfect. Cruise as the senator looks like a smart a$$ (pardon the expression) and Streep is perfect as the journalist.

"Nowhere else have I seen such lions led by such lambs."

Lions for Lambs marks the first feature from the now Tom Cruise owned company of United Artists. Despite its poor box office profit and heavy pasting, I found the movie to actually be quite decent.

The film is three different stories told in parts throughout the movie. The main story is concerned with action in... read more

This movie has many flaws and it isn't much loved by viewers but I liked it anyway. Of course, it is not a masterpiece but I found the subject is very interesting and very well developped. The best part is the confrontation between Meryl Streep and Tom Ctuise. If you enjoy movies about politics like I do, it is definitely worth a look.

"22.5 DVD Kelpoa kritiikkiä Irakin sodasta, jota Yhdysvallat harjoittaa erinäisistä ohkaisemmista syistä. Redford ohjaa varmalla otteella, sillä kokonaisuus on varsin ehjä. Isoa plussaa siitä, ettei kokonaisuutta ole venytetty parituntiseksi, vaan juuri sopiva alta puoltoistanen, joten mielenkiinto pysyy yllä."

"Katsottu 8.1.2011 TV Happy Birthday Iraq and Afghanistan! Almost a decade later nothing but a year has changed! Amerikkalaiset ovat ajaneet itsensä dilemmaan. Kun Irakin ja Afganistanin rajaseutua on myllätty kohta jo kymmenen vuotta, on lähteminen yhtä hankalaa kuin sotimaan jääminen. Ainoa konkreettinen muutos tuntuu kulminoituvan alati kasvavaan miestappiolukemiin. Amerikkalaiset vannovat tähtiristilipun nimeen ja patriotismi ajaa heitä eteenpäin. Ainoastaan suunta tuntuu olevan huk"

"1.3. I don't know what this movie tries to be. It's not pro-Bush or anti-goverment political drama - this is more like a speech in which every party can say what they want. Lions for Lambs is way too careful for my taste to like but it's still interesting movie. "

"Lions for Lambs kuvaa Afganistanin sotaa ja siihen liittyviä ongelmia. Tarinaa kerrotaan kolmesta näkökulmasta. Washingtonissa toimittaja Janine Roth (Meryl Streep) on haastattelemassa senaattori Jasper Irvingiä (Tom Cruise). Irving tarjoilee uutta strategiaa Afganistaniin. Toisaalla valtiontieteen opiskelija Todd Hayes (Andrew Garfield) käy keskustelua professori Stephen Malleyn (Robert Redford) kanssa. Samanaikaisesti Afganistanissa ollaan toteuttamassa uutta strategiaa, mutta asia ei suj"

Mediocre propoganda.

“"Nowhere else have I seen such lions led by such lambs."

Lions for Lambs marks the first feature from the now Tom Cruise owned company of United Artists. Despite its poor box office profit and heavy pasting, I found the movie to actually be quite decent.

The film is three different stories told in parts throughout the movie. The main story is concerned with action in Afghanistan by U.S. soldiers. Two soldiers end up wounded and vulnerable on the top of a snowy mountain. Low on ammo and low on energy, their superiors back at base do what they can to launch a rescue mission. The next story is about a journalist (Streep) who visits a congressman (Cruise) to interview him for a story. The final tale is about a young student (Garfield) who arrives one morning in the office ” read more

And the final 2/10 is for Philippe Rousselot's cinematography work.

Not as interesting as it could be.

Watch only if you must.
