Many people found the movie boring, but that may be because of the nature of the subject matter. If you're looking for an easy-to-understand movie where you don't really have to think or do anything else, then Syriana is not for you. Be prepared to watch certain parts over again, but it's worth it. For those who understand the plot, Syriana actually IS an action-packed movie. It might help to read a summary online before watching the movie, so that you understand the plot. Don't write the movie off within the first half-hour or so. Stick with it, stay awake, and keep your mind open. You'll be surprised with what you discover.

Another over rated film from Hollywood

All the big wigs in Hollywood were saying how great this movie was and how wonderful George Clooney is in it. Being a sucker that I am, I went and rented it. What a mistake! This movie is just one boring scene after another. I guess all you have to do is make a movie that shows America causing all the problems of the world and you'll have everybody in Hollywood kiss your butt. I just wish they would make BETTER movies showing how bad Amercia is. Maybe I would take their side. Don't waste your money. Wait until it comes out on T. V.

    what in the world!!!!!!!!!

    before i saw this movie i was expecting a fast paced and suspensefulll movie. all the critics were calling it a masterpiece, so i decided to see it for myself. after the first 30 minutes of the movie i was completly lost. it seemed like the entire movie was talk, talk and more talk, with the occasional fights or explosions. it got to a point were i just gave up, because everyhting they were saying made no sense to me! in my opinion this movie is not as nearly as thrilling as they advertised it. if you are into these kinds of movies go seet it.but if you are looking for a fast-paced action, sunpense thriller movie, syrriana is not for you.
