It was difficult to follow the story line. Great photography and believable acting.
Great movie. Riveting stories. Execellent acting!
Loved it. Had to watch it twice to fully understand it. Will happily watch it a third time. Matt Damon was particularly good.
I absolutely loved this movie and hope they do something else similiar of sequel if possible. It kept me on edge and thinking, Great movie
Storyline confusing - not worth paying to go see it at the movies!
I loved it....
I thought it was a brilliant and accurate portrayal of what`s REALLY going on with the global oil markets and the middle east.
A compelling drama that left me wanting more. Beautifully filmed and the acting makes you forget the incredible starpower involved.
The movie was very political but if that was what you were expecting it was really well done.
Good Movie, George Clooney was very good.
From director Stephen Gaghan, George Clooney heads up a star-studded cast in this action-packed, timely, thriller. Clooney at his best! "Syriana" is definitely a movie not to be missed.
I liked the movie, but I did find it hard to follow.
It was great to see George Clooney take on a very unglamorous role. He did a great job and this movie will hold your interest, especially in light of current world events.
I thought George Clooney was excellent in his role as a CIA operative. How one could not trust anybody they were dealing and negotiating with. Very powerful movie!
It was an interesting take on the oil "crisis" and the political intrigue surrounding the need for commodities. Some very realistic scenes, most notably the graphic torture scene with Clooney. May be a bit difficult to follow at times.
clearly identify the depth of the crisis we live in!!! it is truthful in showing the real stories behind the greed and thurst for money, power, money and blood.
Realistic and a good strong story.
To slow and long... the subtitles get to become a lot after the first hour
Hard to follow at first but good.
Amazing movie, very gripping. The storyline comes around perfectly. Will see it again for sure. Clooney at his very best.
I was hard to follow.
I think I should have read the book first, I couldn`t keep up with the intrigue.
A bit too long, George Clooney was great.
it was very well done! i especially liked cloony`s de-movie star take!
Very true to the book which is fantastic. It really illuminated issues that the media refuses to address. Talented acting cast and a well written piece.
A movie that made you sit-up and pay attention as alot of different stories are being told which all fit together in the end. Refreshing and honest look at the state of our current world and the corruption and greed that is destroying lives and encouraging disaster around the corner.
Can`t wait to see it again.George Clooney shows a new depth-does a superb job.
It was thought provoking.
I enjoyed the clever intertwining of the events in the lives of the main characters.
It is a very compelling and intriguing movie, one that allows the viewer to challenge their own opinions about politics, among other things.
IT wasn`t a super action picture but well done and told a great story that I could see as being true.
This movie reminded me alot of "Traffic";with the great intertwining(and `believable)stories,and as well,superb cinematography.I`m especially pleased that George Clooney FINALLY got the acting recognition he so deserves.Too bad he didn`t get the best director award also.Oh well,maybe next year!
worst movie george ever did
Worst then garfield.
For those of you like to be in a constant state of ignorant bliss, go see some fairy tale movie like Narnia. For those of you who actually would like to open your EYES and see the problems of the outside world, go see this movie.
its a huge reality check to all the people who refuse to worry themselves with the world`s growing problems...
Not a very uplifting movie. Interesting story from many perspectives. Makes you think about our reliance on oil. I may have to see it a second time to get all the story lines, but don`t particularily want to.
I thought this movie was not good ,because it`s not reflect the Arabs truth,also it`s an American way to show off
I thought this movie was not good. George Clooney should try and get a job on All my children or some important show like that. He just has no acting skills. Maybe he should have been a plumber!!!
an amazing movie that shows you how the american government works to take your economy down if it means that their economy grows. or destroy you if you think about doing something that would bring down their economy. its all about money, and like that dude said, `corruption is why we[america] win!`
It seemed to want to make a point, but just didn`t make a point at all, except that business people are the reason why the world is so screwed up. Too long, and too boring. It was like a bad documentary.
Great movie if you have a brain and know how to use it. If not...don`t bother.
it was a very interesting movie, it held my attention all the way through.
the first movie that shows the truth finally!!
