About this product
- DescriptionStephen Gaghan, who won an Oscar for Best Screenplay for TRAFFIC, makes his directorial debut with SYRIANA, an espionage thriller set in the Middle East. George Clooney stars as Bob Barnes, a longtime CIA agent preparing to slow down his life and spend more time with his teenage son (Max Minghella). But his last secret mission, getting rid of Prince Nasir (Alexander Siddig), turns out to be more complicated than he imagined, placing him in the middle of a dangerous conspiracy involving government corruption, oil, and international terrorism. Matt Damon, who starred with Clooney in OCEAN'S ELEVEN and OCEAN'S TWELVE (and made a cameo in Clooney's CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND, which was also about spies and conspiracies), plays Bryan Woodman, an energy man whose ethics become vulnerable after the horrific loss of one of his sons. Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., lawyers Bennett Holiday (Jeffrey Wright) and Dean Whiting (Christopher Plummer) also must choose between the government's special interests and what's best for the world (as well as their own special interests). Gaghan gives SYRIANA a documentary-like feel, using handheld cameras and shooting on location, adding to the believability of the complex plot. To heighten the realism, Clooney learned to speak Arabic and even put on thirty pounds for the role. A fast-paced, heart-pounding, relentless film, SYRIANA was inspired by the true story of former CIA agent Robert Baer, told in his book SEE NO EVIL: THE TRUE STORY OF A GROUND SOLDIER IN THE CIA'S WAR ON TERRORISM.

It had a plausible story line, although was more drama than action I felt it dealt more with character development than having enough action. Had a sad ending as well.

An intelligent, chalenging drama that's not afraid to offend.
This movie is surprising, gripping and challenging. It is one of the lesser known gems that doesn't assume the viewer is an idiot with no knowledge of current affairs, or the way the world works. Too often American made films and media have a very one-sided view of the world. This film goes some way in portraying the effects of globalisation and commerce in the Middle East as well as the reaction of the USA to the attenuation of its reach and power. The all-star cast does a great job of portraying the complexity and subtleties of the issues tackled.

This film failed to entertain
The acting was good, but the film was slow. If you like an involved arms deal type film that takes concentration rather than entertaining then this is for you. I believe the film to be boring and could not watch it to conclusion. I donated it to the RSPCA and two weeks later it is still on their shelves so I cannot be alone in my personal summary of this film and also a friend's opinion who watched it with me.
