      For a thriller, Body Of Lies has a lot of exposition - most of the scenes are just DiCaprio talking to Crowe on the phone - but the dialogue is thankfully sharp enough to keep interest levels high until the sporadic action scenes. Breathless in detail and information, the meandering plot really only settles down after the halfway mark, interrupted only by an initially unwanted and distracting, but then welcome, love story between DiCaprio a nurse. DiCaprio is fine as usual and Crowe doesn't have a lot to do but talk on the phone, so that leaves the movie to be stolen by Mark Strong; in a role that could have been forgotten easily, Strong steps up and gets himself noticed as the tender/brutal police chief. It might be a tad dated and be too much of a 'talkie' for a thriller, but the film's quick pace is undeniable and just may be the winning factor. 4/5
