It's on dvd now, with Nicolas Cage... It's about an arms trader's rise and fall. I have to say, this is a guy drama if there ever was one. Women are scarce and when they are involved, they're objectified in a bad way or they're too dumb to realize what is going on. :rolleyes: The movie seems to be going nowhere as we follow this selfish greedy guy through his life, but it ends with a pretty strong political statement.

I'd say 7/10.

I've seen this movie at the theaters and I loved it.
It was hilarious.

The movie tried to dramatize/humanize the life of a gun salesman/dealer. It opens a peephole into the world of arms dealing and the politics around it.

I felt it was a comic/action/drama flick of a regularly heavy issue.

Really? You found it funny? :confused:

Hmm...I wonder if you're thinking of the same movie Joanna. I saw this in the theater and found it very serious and mildly disturbing. It was certainly entertaining but not something I would watch again.

Definitely some strong political messages.

I thought it had a great ending.

Definitely not your typical hollywood happy ending.

Nope. It's true too. "We" need these people, unfortunately.
