Storyline Heading
Roger Ferris uncovers a lead on a major terrorist leader suspected to be operating out of Jordan. When Ferris devises a plan to infiltrate his network, he must first win the backing of cunning CIA veteran Ed Hoffman and the collegial, but perhaps suspect, head of Jordanian intelligence. Although ostensibly his allies, Ferris questions how far he can really trust these men without putting his entire operation - and his life - on the line.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Thriller - This is a serious espionage drama that does not have as much action as the commercials may suggest. Fans of Russell Crowe may be disappointed by his fairly limited screen time. The talky nature of the film may appeal more to older adults, but the film's sometimes graphic violence may turn them off.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good For those who care about there being more to a thriller than pointless car chases and over-edited fight sequences, Body of Lies offers a satisfying dose of truth.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good "Body of Lies" contains enough you can believe, or almost believe, that you wish so much of it weren't sensationally implausible. No one man can withstand such physical ordeals as Ferris undergoes in this film,

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The plot occasionally becomes convoluted and murky, but when it trains its focus on matters of treachery and intrigue, Body of Lies is exciting and compelling. ...a tautly paced, well-acted espionage thriller with the requisite explosions and action sequences. Still, it ends up leaving the viewer rather cold.

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 98 moviegoers:
TEENS:Great reviews from teens. Everyone enjoyed it very much. Over half rated it very high. Recommended.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:These are not the greatest reviews. About half rated it above average and half rated it average. These aren't bad reviews but they aren't high enough to strongly recommend this movie.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Roger Ferris (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the best man U.S. Intelligence has on the ground, in places where human life is worth no more than the information it can get you. In operations that take him around the globe, Ferris' next breath often depends on the voice at the other end of a secure phone line—CIA veteran Ed Hoffman (Russell Crowe). Strategizing from a laptop in the suburbs, Hoffman is on the trail of an emerging terrorist leader who has orchestrated a campaign of bombings while eluding the most sophisticated intelligence network in the world. To lure the terrorist out into the open, Ferris will have to penetrate his murky world, but the closer Ferris gets to the target, the more he discovers that trust is both a dangerous commodity and the only one that will get him out alive.
