Genre: Crime/Drama/Thriller/Action

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Mark Strong, Goldshifteh Farahani, Vince Colosimo, Ali Sulaiman, Alon Aboutbol


A CIA spy, Roger Ferris (DiCaprio) is posted in the middle-east and his task is to gather as much information as possible about terrorist activities and pass them on to his superior, Ed Hoffman (Crowe). A video of Al-Saleem (Aboutbol) the head of a terrorist organisation gets intercepted by Ferris who learns that Saleem plans to carry out a series of bombings across Europe and the America's. Following the lead, he learns of Al-Saleem's safe house in Amman, Jordan and approaches Hani Salaam (Strong) the head of the Jordanian General Intelligence Department (GID) for assistance. Hani tells Ferris that one of his own men is posted in the organisation who could assist Ferris in the operation. Hoffman wants to take Hani's operative in custody and question him, which Hani does not allow. Hoffman tries to conduct a side operation with Ferris' aide Skip (Colosimo) without either Hani or Ferris knowing about it. The movie has a spectacular plot, just what the doctor ordered. Fabulous performances by both DiCaprio and Mark Strong takes the entire movie to a whole new level which makes it even better. The first half has a lot of activity and hence seems a little lengthy and slow but as the movie progresses towards the climax it only gets better. A simply amazing movie and I particularly love Leonardo's beard style.

Thumbs up: Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Strong
Thumbs down: A slightly slow first half

Rating: 8.3/10
