O que se diz lá fora acerca de BODY OF LIES:
«BODY OF LIES contains enough you can believe, or almost believe, that you wish so much of it weren't sensationally implausible.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«Working from a screenplay by William Monahan, Scott takes rusty '80s clichés from the days when we were playing nuclear chicken with Russia and retrofits them to the post-9/11 world. He exposes how weary those old spy tropes really are.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«BODY OF LIES is a film in disguise. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, except in this case the disguise is better than what it's covering up.»
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.
«As it is, the movie is a hodgepodge of borrowings and half-cooked ideas, flung together into a feverishly edited jet-setting exercise in purposeless intensity.»
A.O. Scott, New York Times.
«Neither the location-based verisimilitude of Ridley Scott's shooting style nor the estimable Middle East expertise of source-material author David Ignatius can disguise BODY OF LIES as anything other than the contrived phony-baloney it is. »
Todd McCarthy, Variety.
