But the writers couldnt make ends meet...The concept is great, potential is unlimited but the ending didnt deliver...i mean It didnt make sense to go through the entire movie promoting change, potential, courage, a promising future...and to end it without any of these aspects...ummm great concept not much connection. it was pretty good though
0 out of 0 users found this helpful Worst movie I have ever seen
The trailer is misleading....I watched this move in about 30 minutes, forward fast is a great tool. This was the most boring, politically motivated piece of junk I have ever seen. Robert Redford should run for office if he wants to espouse his political views not force them on the public disguised as "entertainment". If you haven't seen it, don't waste your money!

How could anyone who actually sat through this torture even consider it a movie worth going to see. I have never walked out of a movie, I paid for it, I'm going to watch it no matter how much I disagree with the viewpoint or just in general don't like it. However, in this case I should heve walked out as soon as it started. If I wanted to watch Mr. Redford's political views about the present administration I should have saved my money, and more importantly, my time and waited for him to bring out a documentary on PBS, which is where this horribly acted fiasco should have been. Along with Cruise and Streep, Redford really stunk up the stage. If you saw this movie and know what these three "performers" are capable of, I cannot believe that anyone would even consider this as anything other than a very poorly expressed political statement of a has been loser. Mr. Redford, Shame On You! You can now keep your political beliefs to yourself because after this you have no credibility as an actor.

The majority of reviews on this site further illustrate why this government is getting away with all of the ,'In Your Face', atrocities we continue to experience. What will it take to pull these heads out of the sand?
1 out of 2 users found this helpful I Love this movie
I love Tom Cruise and his movies, and i can't understand why many people didn't like Lions For Lambs however Robert Redford with him. i went to the movie 2 times then i downloaded it. i think people who didn't like it have to watch again. you can downoad it from egweb.25u.com and also read reviews about it.

Time for Redford and Streep to hang up their oscar reputations. Cruise should have passed this one up too. Sorry Hollywood, this one is a real bummer. 1 Star for Charity and past performances

Rate this movie doesn't allow NO stars. That's what this deserves. The Gross didn't even cover Streep's salary. Unless, she did volunteer work. When is Hollywood gonna wake up and realize that we Americans won't sit back and stand for this commie propaganda. Seems like everyone involved in the atrosity did very well here in A-M-E-R-I-C-A. God love it and Bless it!

Typical Hollywood garbage. Redford, Streep, and Cruise all grandstanding their political agenda's under the guise of acting. The movie was boring and a feeble attempt to sway the 5 people watching with me to accept their political views. No thanks! Save your money and sanity.

The biggest pile of crap. This is what this movie is. I have no idea who in their right mind would give it more than 1 star.

I saw this movie after reading numerous critical reviews on this site and consequently went to this movie not expecting to see a very good film. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a movie that treated a serious subject in a thoughtful way. When I left the theater, I felt more like I had just watched a commentary on PBS rather than seeing a movie, a point-counterpoint discussion between Pat Buchanan and Michael Moore presenting the conservative and liberal sides of US’s involvement in Iraq. Rather than being told which side to support leaves it up to the viewer to decide for himself. The movie does not present any new information and anyone the least bit aware of what is going on has already heard most of the arguments before. I was glad to be given a movie that challenged me to think for myself without telling me what to think or believe. If you like thoughtful movies, I think this movie is worth a look. I enjoyed it, but I can see why others might not.

Don't listen to the other reviews panning this movie. This was one of the best movies my husband and I have ever seen.

I truly think this is the most important movie to hit the screen in my lifetime. I've never been more appalled by the selfish nature of this administration, masquerading as purveyors of peace and good will when in reality only furthering their self serving motives. We as blind lambs believe whatever is shoved down our gullets and the most appalling thing is Americans can't wake up and open their eyes to see what really is going on. We are universally scorned around the world (even from our allies)for our support of an administration which not only has caused us to pay $3.50 a gal for gas, made us LESS secure and created so many more American-hating factions, gave up on a hunt for the man who took down the WTC to go in - UNPROVOKED into a country hoping to set up a presence to get more oil. Wake up. It's time we stop letting an evil puppeteer manipulate a brainless mouthpiece. This movie holds a mirror up to the ugly reality of the face and fate of america.

First, I love a good political drama ... but this film felt way too preachy to me. I think the dialoge was too heavy handed. I also think Tom Cruise, while a gifted actor before he became Koo-Coo, was not up to par. I think his acting in this movie was very poor, and he was obviously trying to prove himself too hard. Robert Redford's acting was even worse. Save your money, don't see this movie, it's not even good enough for your Netflix queu.
