| Partially insulting, but mildly engaging
Here we have what will likely be a divisive movie that, despite intentions to admirably show American ambiguities and hypocrisies lying on many sides of the terrorism debate, rears an unmistakable liberal sentiment underneath a dumbed-down script (realizing who wrote this further's the disturbance) and overly dramatic performances.

Three inter-cut narratives (two excessively talky/preachy, one repetitiously bland) do little at forming a cohesive whole until everything shoddily comes together near the end, but despite all that the film goes by generally quick with enough "provocotive-popcorn" moments to engage a large crowd of people who like their reality-based dramas spoon fed.

I suppose it is a good thing Lions for Lambs manages to fit in an empty mind's worth of quotable, bite-sized flavored, crispity controversies when addressing all us knuckleheads who let others do much of the dirty laundry our country currently washes. Those engaged by some of the US/Mideast documentaries to emerge over the past half-decade though, stay away to avoid suppressing your inner cynic.
