Lord of War

Nicolas Cage is perfectly cast as a Ukrainian-born, American-bred international arms dealer whose business is booming

Nicolas Cage is perfectly cast as a Ukrainian-born, American-bred international arms dealer whose business is booming.

Walking into the world’s trouble spots in a smart suit and with a witty line, he thinks he’s king - and his life seems perfect when he also marries dream woman Bridget Moynahan.

But his brother Jared Leto and persistent lawman Ethan Hawke spell big trouble…

With brilliant sequences (don’t miss the bullet’s-view opening shot) and fantastic performances, this clever movie involves and grips, and has a lot to say about the sorry state of our gun-happy world.
