Nicholas Cage made a torrent of movies juring the time before and after this was made, and by far this seems to be the shining star. The critics Overlooked it, and the movie stores stocked up on it, but not too many people recognized this movie for how brilliant it really is.
Mr.Cage plays Yuri Orlov, the man who siezed the arms buisness and made a profit of billions, at one time selling to BOTH SIDES of every existing war. He started off a Ukranian-born son of immigrants who pretend to be jewish, for personal reasons. His brother and him start off with light ammunition sale, when one day Yuri has a brilliant revolutionary idea of massive arms trade. Yup, Yuri is the smartest of smart, and with salesmans charm. His brother eventually gets messed up in the drug buisness and Yuri goes solo, but when he meets his boy-hood dream girl (fantasized about at a young age) He marries her and he is living the life of a President, but then it all goes down hill, his brother realizes what the guns were doing and in an attempt to stop a group of guerrilla forces, is killed. His Wife discovers his job, and the C.I.A are after him. His life went from an all-time high, to an all-time low.
A Spectacular movie, worth every last penny.

Lord of war is a very effective movie.it is well written and there is a
decent back story to the main character via numerous flash
backs.Nicolas Cage plays an arms dealer being pursued relentlessly by
an interpol agent(Ethan Hawke).I liked the first person narrative with
Cage doing the voice-over.it worked well with this picture.you could
say this movie is a bit preachy.However i think it's best when watching
this type of movie,to just try and think of it in terms of
entertainment.so hopefully the movie is well made and has some
entertainment value. for me,Lord of War is one of those movies.it is
immensely entertaining,with good performances.i love this movie. 5/5

By Moodywoody TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 4 2011
Format: DVD
Lord of War is a tale about an arms dealer, effectively narrated by Nicholas Cage, who also the star of the film.

The film tears away the veneer of respectability of arms dealers, and makes the convincing argument that much of the butchery occurring in Third World places could be mitigated if we just didn't them access to all these weapons. Though there is a scene in the film where an atrocity is done with machetes, the point is that it makes it easier for the perpetrators to do massacres with guns rather than machetes.

The film does a good job mixing its message along with an interesting storyline and history lesson, making this film something like a docudrama about the arms trade. It offers the moral arguments and rationalizations of the arms dealer, the counter argument being the death and destruction these arms do. However, the end of the film, it offers the depressing scenario that there is too much money and power behind the arms trade, including the complicity of the permanent leading nations on the security council, to have anything ever change.

Le film Lord of War est un film que je voulais dans ma collection, mais celui-ci n'était pas dans la bonne langue (Français) et je me suis plaint de ce problème au vendeur qui a réglé ce problème à ma satisfaction. Il m'a remboursé.

I found that the movie telegraphed the plot too much. I knew within 20 minutes many of the plot elements, although I didn't guess the final scene. However, seen as a fictionalized account of the real world arms trade and all the harm it can do, this film is well worth watching. Although turning such a serious issue into entertainment may seem frivolous, it serves its purpose in both entertaining and provoking some thought. Watch it, and see what you think.

By Daffy Bibliophile TOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 2 2012
Format: DVD
This is a movie about a salesman, if you're looking for a shoot-em-up war movie look elsewhere. What does Yuri Orlov (Nicholas Cage) sell? He sells conventional arms to anyone who will buy them: assault rifles, grenades, helicopters, APCs, Orlov has them all. He sells weapons to anyone with money, never taking sides and never passing judgement. Orlov marries the girl of his dreams, has a son and everything seems okay but an Interpol agent is after Orlov and soon his life comes apart at the seams. Living his multiple lives eventually catches up with him and with the people closest to him.

Okay, so Interpol doesn't send agents after people to arrest them and there are other typical Hollywood concessions made in order to keep the plot moving. But there is an important message in this film, a message that the Interpol agent delivers when he refers to the assault rifles and grenades that Yuri Orlov sells as "the real weapons of mass destruction", that and the fact that private arms dealers are very likely used by nation states to supply groups which it would be "embarrassing" to be publicly associated with.

As I said, this is not a silly John Wayne-style war movie, this movie addresses serious issues in the real world of international arms dealers, "revolutionary" groups in the Third World and the complicity of major world powers in the whole rotten system. As entertainment it flows well and the acting is very good. I especially liked Nicholas Cage's blase, morally disconnected portrayal of a man who succeeds beyond his wildest dreams and hates himself for it.
