About this movie

Roger Ferris (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the best man U.S. Intelligence has on the ground, in places where human life is worth no more than the information it can get you. In operations that take him around the globe, Ferris' next breath often depends on the voice at the other end of a secure phone line--CIA veteran Ed Hoffman (Russell Crowe). Strategizing from a laptop in the suburbs, Hoffman is on the trail of an emerging terrorist leader who has orchestrated a campaign of bombings while eluding the most sophisticated intelligence network in the world. To lure the terrorist out into the open, Ferris will have to penetrate his murky world, but the closer Ferris gets to the target, the more he discovers that trust is both a dangerous commodity and the only one that will get him out alive.

I feelthat it was wrong for us to play i felt some type of way we had. Been auguring. For about two days before. and i could not figure it out i told my daughter he was trying tobdo something to me and he was at the time he started making. False reports too. The police deptment thtrathong me hurting my feelings calling me bitched bastard ehohe tramps not beleaving. In me talk about me so bad wishing i was dead. Not caring about my well being setting me up like im turning a trick as if im a prostatute. And i sell my body guess what im not i not i was just chasing the drug and i had to tell the truth i relasped after. 21 years and now i need recovery in my life its all over facebook so i ask if they would keep me safe because he is going to kill me once the the truth is out im not blaming him i just afaid for my life everyday he promise not. Hurt me but im so scared and one more thing he is so cool his swagg is cool i love alot thing abot him the part i hate is that he need his medicine to keep him calm he never became this volient i never seen him with so much rage agaist my daughter and me calling all the fowl names and oulling knives and poking me in the forehead i was so sxaresx.

I really wanted to like it, but it does drag at times. Russell Crowe gives another great performance in a film he's barely in

The underrated Leonardo DiCaprio outperforms himself yet again with another oscar deserving performance. Absolutely thrilling and detailed.
