Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe join forces for the political action thriller Body of Lies

Ridley Scott gives us his typically muscular take on the War on Terror with Body of Lies, a political action thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe as strategically and temperamentally opposed CIA men. DiCaprio’s the agent in the field with a feel for Arab culture; Crowe’s the paunchy desk jockey who knows how Washington works.

Yet when DiCaprio’s agent concocts a fake Islamist terrorist cell in a bid to track down a shadowy terrorist mastermind, it’s the meddling of Crowe’s wily strategist that threatens to scupper the plan and puts his life on the line.
