Goodfellas with Arms dealers.

An implied execution of many civilians. A bloodless gang shooting with 2 causalties. A burned skeleton is shown. A man is bloodily executed by headshot, with the window behind him splattered in detail.a man is dragged away and leaves a blood trail for a couple of seconds after being shot. A machete massacre happens, yet we only see a blood splat behind a tent and a hand grasping for life. A character is shot repeatedly with AK47bfire but with little blood. 5 scenes of cocaine snorting (one character is an addict in and out of rehab). One scene haas 2 men briefly have sex with 2 fully naked women yet no sensitive parts are shown. 2 sleeping womens rear ends are seen in a shack. A womans dress slips exposing a breast briefly. A couple of scenes with scantly clad women preopositioning a man. 45 F words and scattered milder profanity. A decent movie with some good thrills, ironic laughs, sad commentary, pretty good pacing and a well executed atmosphere. A few underdeveloped characters and some unnecessary voice narration but fairly colorful and ot TOO obvious most of the time.

Compelling cautionary tale

Spectacular catuionary tale about how arms dealers are no different than those who use their weapons. It's a troubled look into a world that has no moral code and has no conscience. And by the end, As payment for Yuri's sins, he loses everyone and everything he ever cared about, because he places his worth in his sales-pitch skills, and is left at the end with nothing but his guns and his money, a sad alternative, the movie shows us. Yuri is repayed for ALL of his sins by the end of the movie, and it's clear that the filmakers are trying to show us that his lifestlye is a very bad idea. This movie rings true on EVERY level, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who can handle the offensive content (some mildy R-rated sexual content, some violence, and strong language). .

talk to your kids before you decide them watch this

Lord of war is a good political thriller that delivers action,thrills,humour and relationships. Violence is realistic but still not over the top sex and other stuff is pretty much what you would expect in an r-rated movie. Also as your kids probaply have played counter strike and call of duty so they would likely love this film and how its told i dont care what other people say that the violence is graphic or not its a little bit harsher than you would expect a PG-13 movie. So if your kids are 13 and up feel free to watch them this movie
