Movie Review - "Lions for Lambs"

... movie with Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, and Robert Redford. Tom plays a U.S. Senator with aspirations for the Presidency. Meryl is a News Reporter covering the war on terror. And, Robert is a Professor teaching Political Science at a university somewhere in California.

The movie takes viewers through three storylines that are interrelated.
  • A Senator and a News Reporter battle wits during an exclusive interview about a new strategy to win the war in Afghanistan.
  • A Professor and a gifted Student discuss the young man's plans for school and why he is not trying to achieve at the level he is capable.
  • Two of the Professor's former student are in Afghanistan as Army Special Forces Officers supporting the Senator's new war strategy.

Movie has been out awhile but was able to catch it at the discount theater in my area. May be slow in action for some. Directed by Robert Redford, overall a good movie. Check it out some time! -JM
