But it does help if you have the help of two of the biggest actors in Hollywood at the moment, those being Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe who has worked with Scott on two previous films, Gladiator and A Good Year. Ed plays the situation like a kid playing a video game, and has the resources to change the rules anytime he feels like it, dispensing his orders from his office, from his backyard, from his daughter's soccer game, for Pete's sake! Both, Islamophobes and Islamophiles--or those on the extremes of any aspect of the political spectrum--will probably find ample elements to dislike about this film. Satellites and cell phones, bodies and lies: modern warfare. One thing's for sure if anybody can, Ridley Scott can. Though the plot is indeed complex, with many layers and sub-layers, deceit and treachery, Scott never lets you lose sight of the overall picture. Just like KoH, it's all about even-handedness and realizing that 1 every side in a conflict has a point of view, which, to itself, is perfectly valid; and 2 every side has people you'd probably like and some you really wouldn't, 3 the way to peace lies with understanding 1 and 2 ; and not with having just one point of view, no matter how righteous it may appear.
Roger kills Nizar after obtaining the information for fear that he will reveal his identity to his friends. Its observations on Jordanian intelligence in particular are very much spot-on. But oh, how that's all changed now. The movie isn't perfect, and there's a key scene at the end which feels very didactic and heavy-handed although judging by the twentysomethings who left the theater talking about how cool one of the torture scenes was, even a message delivered this bluntly just isn't getting into their thick skulls , but it somehow gets away with being an enjoyable genre piece and a genuinely thought-provoking and perceptive film but not one which focuses on these elements to the point of being overbearing , with actual understanding of mid-eastern politics and culture, wonderfully involving characters including the refreshingly non-sexual love interest Aisha, played by Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani , and even a surprising sense of humor. Al-Saleem and his men decide to kidnap Omar.
He travels to Jordan alongside Hoffman where he meets Hani Salaam. Salaam warns Roger that he suspects Omar is a terrorist and not an innocent man as he thinks. I just wish the plot had something fantastic in it to make it into a great film. Satellites and cell phones, bodies and lies: modern warfare. As he adjusts his plans it feels as if the story starts back from the top. What follows is the push and pull between the three men's methodology on capturing the terrorist.
Crowe and Strong, down to Golshifteh Farahani as Aisha, the nurse DiCaprio is drawn to and especially Oscar Isaac who plays Bassam, DiCaprio's go-to guy for information. However, this one was quite forgettable. When Hani rebukes Ed's demand that Jordan allow the Americans to use one of Jordan's double agents, Roger and Ed hatch a plan to bring the cleric to them. His performance is just the right side of slightly hammy, and works wonderfully well. He offers himself in exchange for Aisha. There are twists and turns and it's a lot of fun.
Satellites and cell phones, bodies and lies: modern warfare. The movie confirms what I've known for a long time: Ridley Scott apparently can do no wrong. They get to the house and find many people there. It's the question the audience may ponder during the course of this film where it seems that even those on the same team aren't always working in each other's best interests. He leaves for Iraq alongside Bassam to search a house based on information given by Nizar.
Salaam and his men arrive and rescue him. After the attack, Al-Saleem comes out of hiding in search of Omar. A lesser director might have chosen to ramp up the action, sacrificing intelligence for entertainment. The plan is complicated by its being a secret from Hani and by Roger's attraction to a local nurse. Well, here's a newsflash for the poli-preachers on all sides: it's possible to have it all, and just watch Ridley Scott do it. He informs his friends, and they vacate the premises.
Roger returns home that day and finds out that Aisha had been kidnapped. He provides Roger with reliable information about Al-Saleem.

Thing is, you can't leave politics out of a political movie; and so what do you do? But the week after someone asked what movie I saw and I couldn't remember. A lesser director could have taken this story of espionage and twisted it into a convoluted and indecipherable Gordian knot.
A fight breaks out, during which Bassam is killed and Roger severely injured. Ferris uncovers a lead on a major terrorist leader potentially operating out of Jordan, and chooses to act on it, involving Jordanian intelligence leader Hani Salam, played brilliantly by Mark Strong. It's ironic to think that the last time these two actors shared the screen was back in 1995, with the cliched-but-entertaining oater The Quick and the Dead. Now here's where I'm going to start sounding really bizarre: I know I just said it was a lot of fun, but there's a good amount of substance here and a good deal to be learned about middle-eastern politics having lived there for many years, I can assure you that this film works as a primer on the mindset and cultural feel of the locations it is set in, and of the political system there. There are scenes where the film gets really dark and serious, and they completely work as well. One minor complaint is the pacing of the film. But the performances are excellent from DiCaprio; who is the only actor his age who could tackle this role with the any type credibility and depth.
They devise new strategies to track down Al-Saleem. When Hani rebukes Ed's demand that Jordan allow the Americans to use one of Jordan's double agents, Roger and Ed hatch a plan to bring the cleric to them. It's more of spy thriller with a cautionary tale on America's foreign relations mixed in. Films involving 'current events'--particularly those relating to anything happening in the Middle East and Terrorism--tend to be soaked in the writers', producers' and director's politics, which usually end up very much in-your-face and spoil the film, because you suddenly lose the story and drown in the preaching and proselytizing. Others of a more moderate and even-handed disposition will find much to like and appreciate. All of this, rather profound, stuff is wrapped up in a gritty Ridley Scott production and direction, that keeps your full attention for its full 2+ hours.
