Quick Review: Body of Lies

I try to avoid Halloween anymore. Part of it is being an old geezer and part of it is that Ron died three years ago on Halloween. So after work Friday, I went to see Ridley Scott's new movie, Body of Lies with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe. Ridley Scott rarely directs anything really great, but he does know how to entertain. Body of Lies is an action-packed movie set in the Middle East, about terrorism...can you believe it!? The plot is a bit thin and the acting is average. I was rarely left guessing or being impressed. But for a couple of hours, I didn't have to remember that day three years ago.
