    Underrated and almost forgotten story

    There are many factual representations in this movie that I cannot give away without spoiling the movie, but it's one that holds those same truths without many people knowing they actually exist. Gun smuggling / reselling is real. Little is known about that side of the world, but this movie tells that untold story. While it may be a bit over-the-top, because it had to be made for Hollywood, the underlying aspects are real. You'll be intrigued you knew so little about how gun gets circulated and you'll also realize it's pretty dangerous too.

    I was expecting more from this cast, but was disappointed. The movie basically repeats the same process over and over again until he finally gets caught, but by then the movie has dragged on for so long that you never really feel a climax. Instead, you just know that this is suppose to be a big moment. I know they were trying to send a message with this one, but it was poorly delivered.

    Suprisingly entertaining

    I had avoided this movie because I figured it would be another drug-running, people-dying, no plot movie. However one day I was forced to watch it and was surprised at how entertaining the movie was. It was both funny and sad and made it very easy for you to understand Nicolas Cage's career as a weapons dealer. It has twists and turns that keep you interested throughout.

    This is a great movie, my wife and I love it! It shows you ins and outs of gun and weapon selling, and where and how other countries get thier weapons. Even though this movie has some dark comedy, it still makes powerful statement. I highly recommend this film! Also, some other good Nicolas Cage movies to come out recently are Next, Bangkok Dangerous, and Knowing.

    Warlord

    Lord of war is an action packed comedy mixed in with some drama. This is a movie about a young man that has dreams of making a lot of money. His first sale was a pair of Israeli made Uzi's which he almost died from, but with a bit of humor saved his life. In the end he has a chance to keep from losing everything. But will he take it?

    the story follows an arms dealer as he goes from continent to continent selling illegal weapons to foreign countries all the while being chased by the FBI. One of Nic Cages best roles. The story never lets up and it has a great supporting role from Jare Leto as Cage's brother.

    Okay, I'm not the biggest Nick Cage fan. Well, I'm not even a Nick Cage fan. I honestly can't even stand the guy, but I bought this one simply because I heard it was underrated and I should give it a chance. By golly it was actually an entertaining movie.

    This is one of my favorite Cage movies. The story flows well, the acting is good, and it is very engaging. It is a good high definition copy, and as it is older but does not have many special effects they are not made to look cheesy by the quality.

    Has some good cinematic scenes with heavy armor (tanks) and the story line is supposed to be historically based on several accounts concerning West African arms deals from the 1990s. Contains some black-comedy and crisp dialogue throughout.

    Probably Nicolas Cage's Best Movie

    We all know Cage isn't really known for his acting but he nails it in this movie. Having Jared Leto as a supporting actor also helps. The topic is great and opens up your eyes to a side of war you may have not been too familiar with.

    Harrowing (true?) Tale

    Another intense outing (is there another kind?) from Cage. This movie is a fascinating inside look at international arms trading. I don't know how accurate it is but it's still harrowing to think that it COULD be this way.

    Love this movie as one of my all-time favorites. Nick Cage does a great job of depicting a father struggling to keep his work and family separate. He and his family enjoy all the luxuries a man can buy, but at what cost?

    I first saw this movie at a friends, bought it and can't stop watching it. The movie might not be Oscar material-it is great entertainment with a twist in the end. If you like Nicholas Cage-you'll enjoy it.

    This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The plot is interesting, the movie interweaves drama with dark humor. It is sad, funny, horrifying. The movie is quite entertaining. Definitely not for children.

    Is it my imagination or is Cage making a TON of movies recently? Although none of them are Oscar performances and most are low budget, but Cage is still enjoyable to watch.

    You can say what you want about Nicholas Cage, but this is one of his finest performances ever. In a way you want him to win but well he is the Lord Of War lol.

    Great movie that shows what happens when gunrunners sell weapons to countries that are ignorant to the effects of them. Hits home at the end when Nicholas Cage goes free.
