This is going to go on my list of litmus test movies along with stuff like Glengary Glen Ross, Sideways, and Crash (the last one being a [censored] terrible movie). If someone thought Syriana sucked then I can trust that they have terrible taste in intelligent movies.

Thankfully, I can still turn to these people if I need a good review of Vin Diesel Extreme: Part III.

Well I liked it. I had no problem following the plot and the myriad of characters.
Then again, I also liked The Constant Gardener.
Not having my mind degraded by TV and video games also helped.

I thought it was fairly good; however, I was pretty tired when I went to the theatres and wasn't prepared for as heavy a movie as it was, so I left pretty confused... I would like to see it again.

I agree, it was a really good movie. As was Constant Gardener.

I had to see it a second time and make sure to read up on who the characters were before going back, but after the second time watching it I thought it was damn good. The first time, I saw it tired and was totally unprepared for what it was.

I like intelligent movies.
