Body of Lies is a crisp and watchable American spy film based on the novel of the same name by David Ignatius set in context of the middle-east and the war on terror, unfolding the story of three men battling a terrorist organization, and each other. Leonardo DiCaprio as Roger Ferris, a CIA operative who is sent to Jordan ;Russell Crowe as cunning CIA veteran Ed Hoffman, a manipulative CIA boss who teams with Ferris ; Golshifteh Farahani as Aisha, Ferris' nurse in Jordan.
The plot begins with an elite anti-terror squad targeting a terrorist safe house. The terrorists detonate an explosive device , killing civilians and members of the elite team. It is then revealed that the C.I.A. is trying to track down the leader of the terrorist organisation, Al-Saleem, with the help of an infiltrator (Di-Caprio) in the middle-east. In Amman, Roger works with Hani Salaam, Jordan's head of security, whose only dictum is "Don't lie to me." Ferris has information that Al Saleem may be behind terrorist attacks, but lacks any evidence to apprehend him or any of his associates. His plan to implicate Dubai-based Architect, Omar Sadiki, not only fails, his Iranian girlfriend, Aisha, gets abducted, and he must decide whether to surrender himself to her abductors to negotiate her release or leave her to their mercy. With Satellites and cell phones, bodies and lies its a modern warfare. WELL MADE FILM
