Complicated but a great movie
I watched this and there were so many story lines I had no idea what was going on, so I turned it off half way through. But I went back and watched the whole movie and it was great! It was nominated for some Oscars but I don't think it got the publicity it deserved because in today's society, Arabs are all portrayed as "evil." (However, I am not saying they are evil. I am just saying in a post 9/11 world, there are many steriotypes towards people in the middle east.) At the end of the movie, you actually sympathized with the suicide bombers. There are a few scenes where a character is tortured (including the removal of his fingernails, which really disgusted me) and there are about 10 uses of the f-word, which is small, compaired to a lot of today's movies. Like the last reviewer said, it is a good idea to have an adult there because kids will have questions. (I know I did!)
But if you are tired of movies that anyone with two brain cells can understand, try watching Syriana.
