Lions for Lambs

Chicken or Lamb?

Tom Cruise plays a U.S. Senator trying to become the next President. He's interviewed by a reporter, Meryl Streep. The movie starts off okay, but nothing really happens. People talk about politics and ideology. Their conversations become louder and more heated. Then more talk. Blah blah blah. A couple college kids join the army to prove that they're making a difference in the world and then they get shot by Afghans. Oh no. More pontificating. More diatribes.

The Highs: Good sound effects when the army helicopter goes by and gets shot down. A good discussion on war and politics.

The Lows: Too preachy; Can't get Tom Cruise as a crazy scientologist out of my mind; nothing really happens in the movie.

The Verdict: A Political Science major's dream movie.

My rating: D, 61.
