Hard hitting or missing

Syriana is a thriller through and through; it has a lot of winding plots and character arcs and it eventually a satisfying viewing experience. All of that said it is a little convoluted and i wouldn’t blame anyone with less than tabloid knowledge of the Middle East and the oil problems to fell a bit, well patronised by this film. The dialogue is so full of political tosh that most regular movie goers will hate this.

Some of the characters are well picked and played though; Matt Damon is brilliant as the suffering father. George Clooney is fantastic, his dedication to this role is clear at plays it with utter conviction; just wait till you hear his Arabic. I’d write more but pizza’s on its way...
