Lord of War

The movie Lord of War is about the rise and fall of an illegal arm dealer Yuri Orlov (Nicholas Cage), from his early days in the early 1980s in Little Odessa, selling guns to mobsters in his local neighbourhood, through to his ascension through the decade of excess and indulgence into the early 90s, where he forms a business partnership with an African warlord and his psychotic son. The film also charts his relationship through the years with his younger brother, his marriage to a famous model, his relentless pursuit by a determined federal agent and his inner demons that sway between his drive for success and the immorality of what he does. Good movie anyway but I like the statement at the end of the movie:-
The top arm dealers in the world are UK, USA, France, Russia and China and all of them are the members of UN Security Council....

So..., What Say You?
