Default Lions For Lambs....

Surprised to see no review of it here. Checked it out last night. It was great. Well worth the rental. Dialogue-driven, but still a great Redford movie.

Rather dry and boring in my opinion.

I enjoyed it for the most part. I'm one of few. Lots of people hated it.


Truth hurts, I guess.

]I enjoyed it for the most part as well, but falls into the "once was enough" category for me.

I thought it was decent. Good acting with a solid cast, but weak storyline. It's a buy for me though.

I agree that the political slant on this movie certainly favored one side as Robert Redford often does publicly.

The problem I have with Lions For Lambs is that it thinks it has a message, when it actually doesn't and just ends up going round in circles without saying anything. The glitz of the three stars is almost enough to distract you from this, but it can't change the fact that it's the cinematic equivalent of someone who has read the newspaper this morning and based his entire political outlook on one story.
