i just wanted to say thanks. i finally watched Lord of War after a thread you started weeks ago. this film definitely deserves 2 thumbs. impressed with film angels, acting, the ak-47. this film deserves an academy award! for further discussion, i kinda felt that this movie was anti-gun and anti 'american government'. whatd you guys think? and second, i like the part at the end where it says "this film is based on actual events" at first, it made me think that this movie is based off a true story. but now that i think of it... cold war, wars in africa, genocide, etc. those are actual events. i felt like i was tricked into thinking it was a true story. another reason for the anti-gun and anti-american government theory!
