Lord of War

Lord of War ★★★ 2005 (R)

Niccol's look into the dark world of international weapons trade says guns are evil but its vivid imagery suggests something very different. Yuri Orlov (Cage), a Ukrainian immigrant living in Manhattan, would like to put a gun in the hand of every person on the planet. Aided in business by his brother Vitally (Leto) and pursued by Interpol agent Valentine (Hawke), Yuri slickly operates in his frightening underworld of bloody regional conflict. His fabulous life is fueled by profits extracted from the ever-growing stack of dead bodies. Cage's performance is at the center of a satisfying movie experience. 122m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD . US Nicolas Cage, Jared Leto, Bridget Moynahan, Ian Holm, Ethan Hawke, Eamonn Walker, Sammi Rotibi, Eugene (Yevgeny) Lazarev; D: Andrew Niccol; W: Andrew Niccol; C: Amir M. Mokri; M: Antonio Pinto.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
