DiCaprio and Crowe In "Body Of Lies" - Review And Movie Trailer

Trust no one. Deceive everyone. That's the motto for "Body Of Lies".

The upcoming thriller is based on Washington Post columnist David Ignatius' 2007 novel about a CIA operative, Roger Ferris (Leonardo DiCaprio), who uncovers the whereabouts of a major terrorist leader suspected of operating in Jordan.

When Ferris devises a plan to penetrate his network, he must first win the support of crafty CIA veteran Ed Hoffman (Russell Crowe), and the friendly, but perhaps suspect, leader of the Jordanian intelligence group.

Although seemingly his allies, Ferris questions how much he can really trust these men without putting the entire operation - and his life - on the line.

When asked about the urgency of tracking down the evil al-Qaeda operative known as Suleiman he says,

''We think Suleiman is coming to America next, maybe with nuclear or biological weapons,'' says Ferris' CIA superior. ''He has all the strings in his hand. And one of these days, he's going to pull them.''

The film was directed by Ridley Scott, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Roger Ferris, Russell Crowe as Ed Hoffman, Mark Strong as Hani, and Golshifteh Farahani as Aisha. It is rated R for strong violence including some torture, and for language throughout. The film opens October 10.

The film is certainly full of explosions, lies, bad neighborhoods, terrorists, secrets and disguises. The script is well thought out, and no detail was overlooked - even while trying to create German street scenes on U.S. street film shoots. But the filming took its toll on the actors.

Leonardo DiCaprio was left so shattered after a torture scene that he was ill for days. The actor prepared for the scene in a former Moroccan jail for months, but had no idea the intensity of the shoot would leave him drained and sick. DiCaprio told reporters,

"We did that scene in the middle of some medieval torture tomb. There was some kind of horrific dust in the air. I got sick for two or three days afterward because of the intense energy it took."
