Lord Of War Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Lord Of War script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Andrew Niccol movie with Nicolas Cage and Jared Leto.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Lord Of War. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!

Lord Of War Script





There are over 500 million fire arms in the worldwide circulation



That is one fire arm for every twelve people on the planet



The only question is



How do we arm the other eleven?



You don't have to worry



I'm not gonna tell you pack of lies to make you feel good



I'm just gonna tell you what happened



My name is Yuri Orlov



When I was a boy, my family came to America



But not all the way



Like the most Ukrainians congregated in Brighton beach



It reminded us of Black Sea



I've soon realized, we just swapped one hell for another



Even in hell angel sometimes makes an appearance



I have worshiped Eva Fountain since I was ten years old



Of course, she did not know I existed



I've started to think she had a point



But the first    years of my life,



Little Odessa was to me what it is to the q-train



The end of the line



Oh! I did lie about my name. It's not really Yuri Orlov



There have been few occassions in the   th century



when it has been an advantage to be a Jew



But in   s to escape the Soviet Union



Our family pretended to be Jewish



Little about my life has been Kosher ever since



How is it going brother?



That is Vitali. My younger brother.



He was as lost as me. He just did not know yet



My father took his assumed identity to heart



He was more Jewish than most Jews



which drove Catholic mother crazy



How many times? I can't eat shellfish. It is thrift



You are not Jewish



I like it



I like the hat



to remind us there is something above us



I like that



I'm going to temple



You are not going to temple. You go to temple more than the Rabbi



Get off my back woman



God will you ever wise up?



Yuri, don't forget to check the specials at the palace



Growing up in Little Odessa, murder was in everyday part of life



Russian mobsters had also migrated from Soviet Union



and when they came to America, their baggage came with them



There is always some gangster getting wacked in my neighborhood



But,I have never seen with my own eyes



I had the snack of showing up five minutes before something went down



or, five minutes after. Not that day



It hit me. It couldn't have hit me harder if I was the one who murdered and shot



You are going to the restaruant business



because people are always going to have to eat



That was the day I realized my destiny laying for fulfilling



another basic human need.



The next Sabbath I went to temple with my father



However, it was not God I was trying to get close to



My contact with Synagoge lended me first Israeli made Uzi submachine guns



First time you sell a gun, is a lot like the first time you have sex



You have absolutely no idea of what you are doing,



but it is exciting and one way or another it is over way too fast



Gentlemen! The new Uzi machine pistol. Big fire in small package



This little baby uses  mm hole points   -   rounds of simple mags



Preferable adjustable size. Size come standart. Excellent recovery action



Muzzled jumper is   %.   % improved noise suppression



You could pump a mag in a minute, right now



Never wake the guy in next room



Of course, that would eliminate your opportunity for pete business



I did have a natural instinct for smuggling counter band



Fortunately, back than the video camera was as big as bazooka



Here, I have been running away from violence my whole life



I should have been running towards it. It's in our nature



Earliest human skeletons had spearheads in their heads and ripcages



Where have you been? What do we have the customer?



God bless America



Be aware of the dog? You don't have a dog



You are trying to scare people.



No. To scare me. They are going to be aware of dog and me



Dog wants to fuck everything that moves.



What is the fight and kill like dogs



I guess it reminds me to be more human



You envy the dog part or being human. whereas the best part is



dog part. But what if you have two legs .......... like a dog



You are gonna need to see somebody.



I have always wanted to do something big with my life.



I just did not know what. Anyhow, I figured.



If I was going into the gun trade, I was going to aim high



Hey, Vitali! Stop fucking around! I wanna talk to you



You read newspaper Vit?



Newspaper? It is always the same



You are right! Everyday there is people shooting each other



You know what I do when I see that? I look to see what guns they are using



and I think to myself why not my guns



What? You gonna open a gunshop?



Orli! There more of those in America than McDonalds



Even with all the gangsters around here, margins are too low



You have worked out the margins






Forget gang wars. The real money is in actual wars between countries



Yuri! What the fuck do you know about guns?



I know which .... rather be on....



I made the first sale. We are already in business



Ooh! We?



I need a partner



I don't know. I don't know Yuri



Vitali I tasted your boreshit. You are no fucking chef



I can eat in the restaruant for free, but I still don't eat there



Fuck you!



We were doing nothing with our lives.



I mean. It's a shit. It's a shit.



It is true. May be doing nothing is better than doing this



I need you. Brothers in arms



Brothers in arms






Sir! Sir! May I interest you in the shelter fire SA  



They are all the Chinese models. Not so effective against modern



military aircraft. But deadly. If used against commercial airliner



giving them away at    .



It was the   s. Cold War was far from thought.



No ...... from government to government



It was mostly a private club with a lifetime club president



That is him!



This is the big shot ?



Simeon Weisz. Angola, Mozambique, his excessive missiles in the Balkans



........afford to gunpowder



We will be right back!



Mr. Weisz! Mr. Weisz!



It's OK. They are talking



May I help?



Yes. Mutual friend Ilay Curtsman from Brighton Beach Import Export



said to contact you. I have a business proposal. I thought perhaps



we could discuss



I don't think you and I in the same business.



You think I just sell guns, don't you? I don't. I take sides.



But in Iran-Iraq war you sold guns to both sides.



Did you ever consider that I wanted both sides to lose?



Bullets change governments far shorter than votes.



You are in the wrong place my young friend. There is no place for amateurs






and ecstacy



God...God. Oh, God!



You're beautiful. What's your name again?



The only option for Vitali and me was under-the-counter gun money



I got my first break in Lebanon after the suicide bombing



But I wasn't the only local kid making good



When United States leaves a war zone



they generally don't take the ammunitions.



It costs more to bring it back then to buy new stock



So, you sell by the kilo?



Second hand weapons but they are still OK



How many kilos would you like?



Five thousands



I had a flirt for languages.



But I soon discovered that what talks best is



dollars, dinars, drahmas, rubles, rupies and pounds fucking sterlin



army salaries were no better in the   s than they are today



and some of the brass like Litueanant Colonel Suddern



needed to raise money for his private wars.



good to make your acquaintance



this is bullshit money, Vi






This is small fucking potatoes



What do you wanna do?



No. More illegal



What I would give for a plate of cabbage and potatoes



It is not our fight



Vi, come on ! Let's go ! Come on !



Selling guns are like selling vacuum cleaners.



It may cause pound of payment, take orders,



I was an equal opportunity merchant of death



I supplied every army, but the salvation army.



I sold Israeli made Uzis to Muslims



I sold Communist made bullets to Fascists



I hope you are not thinking of selling these, Mr. Orlov.



Personal use



There's a hundred thousand bullets here



I'm kind of trigger happy



Trigger happy?



I even shipped cargo to Afghanistan when they were fighting my fellow Soviets



I never sold Usama bin Laden. Not on any moral grounds



Back then there were always balance and checks.



By the mid   s my weapons were represented in   of the world's top ten war zones



There is no problem living double life



It is the triple or quadruple lives get you in the end



Back then I carried a French, British, Israeli and Ukranian passport



and student visa for the U.S. but that is another story



I also pack   different briefcases depending on who I was that day



and region of the world I was visiting



North of Cartagena, Colombia -     



Without operations like mine, it would be impossible for certain countries



to conduct a respectable war.



I was able to navigate around those inconvenient little arms embargos



There are three basic types of arms deal. White being legal, black being illegal



and my personal favorite color, gray.



Sometimes I made the deal so commaluted



it was hard for me to work out if they are on the level



to keep authorities in the dark, I had often spoken code.



Rocket launchers were mothers, rockets children,



AK-   assault rifle was the angel king



It's Yuri. Yeah. Well.



Raul, Raul. The angel king will arrive tomorrow.



The point is, if I had done my job right,



an arms embargo should be practically impossible to enforce



what? OK. Just slow the fuck down!



I can't understand you.



What do you mean tipped off?



They know where we are? Where are they?



How long have I got? Not long ? What does that mean?



Do we try to lose them?



On this?



Yuri! We have to get off this thing.



No. No one is going anywhere. Slow ! death slow. Buy me time



Yeah, it is Yuri. Get that fucking flag down.



I need another handle for this prob. Something in our weight class



You! Over the side! We are changing the name. Now!



Yes! It's got to check out



The way I looked at it, what is in there?



Have you got a  name?



I often changed the registration of a ship or a plane.



But never in such short notice



What? KONO? How do you spell that?






What are we flying? Dutch? Got it



Get me a Dutch flag, will you?



Faster or I will save your ass in.



Yuri! I don't have Dutch






I've got Belgium



What the fuck use that is? Painted name in the register is fucking Netherlands



I've got a French flag






Turn the sideways, it is Dutch



That is why you are my brother



Alright! Good!



Everybody look innocent now.



They say every man has price. But not every man gets it.



Interpol agent Jack Valentine could not be bought.



At least, not with money.



For Jack, glory was the price.



It is KONO, not the Kristol






It is clean, Sir!



It is clean? It doesn't look clean



I'm gonna go aboard



Change the inner signs of Kristol to KONO



Even I was up against an overzealous agent,



I had a number of methods for discurging a search.



I rutinely mislabeled my arm shipments as farm machinery



and, I have yet to meet the lowly-paid customs official



who will open a container marked "Radioactive Waste" to verify its contents



But my personal favorite is the unique combination of week-old potatoes



and, probable heat



It smells.



Sir! Sign of Kristol,   North



Most importantly I kept a number of intelligence people on the payroll



to supply their colleagues with counter-intelligence.



Let's go!



The second rule of gun running is always insure, you have a full proof



way to get paid, preferably in advance, ideally to an off-shore account



That is why I choose my customer so carefully.



Say what you like about warlords and dictators.



They tend to have highly developed sense of order



They always pay their bills on time.



What is this?



Six kilos of pure cocaine.



I can't hand this to my fucking bank teller at Chase Manhattan



Listen, asshole, you should be thanking me



Have you checked the street price today?



With the seizures at the border last week, it's jumped thirty percent



I sell guns. I don't sell drugs.






I've got standards



You don't pay, you don't play



Fuck you!



What the fuck are you doing?



Fuck you!



No, you don't fuck him. We can work something out.



No, Vi!



We have a deal.



The first and most important rule of gun running is



never get shot with your own merchandise.






So, what do we do now?



We celebrate



That narco guerilla had his fax right,



after shipping at state side turned it to a  healthy profit



it would have been even better, except that one kilo never made it back



Vitali! Vit!



To this day, I don't what Vitali was running away from



May be just from Vitali



I found him twelve days, two thousand miles and     grams later



in bulletin board meeting house



Of course, my dreamgirl had gone there before me






Come on!



Yuri? It's my brother Yuri



He is my big brother



What the fuck is that?



Ukraine. I was young, but I remember.



Look. I started in Odessa. Right? I worked my way to Crimean



....You will be like fucking rich kid



Come on! We are going home!



You, fuck! Fucking fuck you



Fucking fuck! What the fuck is your problem



Come on Vi!



JFK Airport, New York -     



It is nice to be home



We are gonna get you. Come on!



St. Francis Rehabilitation Center, Later That Day



Get out of the car.



Vitali, I need you to get of the car.



Promised our parents.






Vitali, you gonna have great time. It is a top place



Two models checked in last week and



cute weather girl has been here since July



Please, Yuri!



You are a good brother



You are a good brother, Yuri.



OK. Alright. Get out of the car. OK. Get out of the car



From then on I was one-man operation.



I never understood what separated recreational drug user



from habitual. Before the grace of God, it could have been me



snorting lines as long as Bell Parkway.



However, I wasn't entirely free with the grip of addiction myself



There she was again.



Eva Fountain. In my neigborhood they say "good get out"



In our own ways, we both conquered the world






You can't force someone to fall in love with you



but, you can definitely improve your odds



It costed me    grand to book her for a fake photo shoot, another   



to buy her at the hotel.



It is popular hotel, huh?



Eva Fountain



Yuri Orlov



What brings you to St. Barts?



Photo shoot. At least that was the plan.



I guess the photographer got stuck in Miami. Hurricane



Though there is nothing on the news.



Those things can come out of nowhere.



So, the job has been cancelled and



whence you know there is no flight back to New York untill Tuesday



You can hit your ride with me if you like, I am leaving tomorrow



Meanwhile, why don't I take your picture.



In my experience, some of the most successfull relationships



are based on lies and deceit. Since, that is where you end up anyway



it is a logical place to start



I nearly went broke trying to convince her anything but



I knew Eva was not the kind of woman to be seduced by riding in the private jet



unless, you own the jet.



This is your plane?



That is my name



Of course, I was lying. Plane was a rental like the car standing there then



At the last minute, I bribed the crew for the paint job.



Luckily, by the time we landed, Eva wasn't looking anywhere, but my eyes.



I had no idea. I'm sorry I did not recognize you



Don't apologize. I put clothes on for living.



I guess you are taking them off.



I would be if the fotographers had their way



How about you?



I'm in transport. International airfreight mostly.



Business is good.



Where are you from?



I was born in Ukraine. But, I grew up in Brooklyn.






What ? You too?






Well! Here is to our hurricane. Without it, I would have never met you.



This is no accident, is it Yuri?



It feels like fate



I don't believe in fate



What do you believe in?



Is that a view!



That is a view



Thank you. Thank you all.









Always remember son. There is something above you.



Sure, dad!       dollar chandellier



Make yourselves at home. Go! Go!



I'm sorry. That must be tough.



I would be nice to have a couple more guests from my side of family



I am sure they are watching you right now.



Thank you. But, you don't believe that Yuri. Remember.



I know you, Yuri. I know you are not everthing you seem.



Don't worry. I won't ask a lot of questions.



I don't wanna hear you lying.



You take risks. Just, you won't risk us.



That is the trouble falling in love with a dreamgirl.



They have an habit of becoming real.



I have never been so glad to see Vitali



You fucking beautiful!



Brother, brother! Thank you so much for giving me such a beautiful sister



He was out of his rehab and out of his mind



Dance, dance, dance! We have to dance. It's wedding and celebration



But, for once he rescued me.






I was still living way on my knees. Mortgage to the hill.



Using one credit card to pay off another.



Anything to keep Eva in the style she had



Thanks largely to me. It's become a custom



Eva! Eva! This is too much!



And, suddenly, all my Christmas came at once



Nicky, nicky! You did it! Good boy!



Ha haaa! That is my grandson.



Yuri, don't you wanna know what your son is doing?



Who ever said it is better to give than receive



never got a Christmas present like the one I got in      for Michael Gorbachev



What the hell is the matter?



It's over! It's over!



What is over?



Cold fuckingn war. Soviet fucking Union. Evil fucking Empire



Michael says no Mos. It is on the tel. It's over.



Your son is walking.



That's incredible honey.



At least, there will be religious freedom.



Hmm! Let's hope so!



I think I will go back for a visit.



Do you stay in touch with Uncle Dimitri?



I'm not fool Yuri. I don't think you go there just to sell Pepsi Cola



Is this how you want to be remembered?



I don't want to be remembered at all.



If I am being remembered, it means I am dead.



Merry fucking Christmas!



Who is this Vitali?



I am Angel.



Her name is really Angel.She is a fairy.



Let's put her over the Christmas three.



I love you. I love you all.



Come on!



Take this.



Going back to Ukraine.



I miss Odessa.



I miss you



I miss you



Be careful Yuri. Those things you sell kill.






You're high.



That's true.



Hello, Christian!






During the Cold War, Red Army stationed nearly one million troops in Ukraine



because of its strategic military importance.



The day after the wall came down, paycheck stopped coming



Your papers?



There is nothing better for an arms dealer in the combination of



disgruntled soldiers and warehouse full of weapons.






I was hoping Major General Dimitri Volkov with a lot armory doors open



with a lot of military bases. For a start, he was family.



He was a highly decorated hero of the Red Army.



And, he was almost permanently shitfaced.



I can't just sell you government property Yuri



I have to report.



Report to who? Moscow?



As of last week, Moscow is a foreign country.



You flag new boss?



There is no new boss yet. They are all too busy



squabbling who is gonna get the presidantial holiday home at the Black Sea



It's beatiful.



Ones you know, don't care anymore. Ones you care, don't know any more



Show me you inventory.



Those    years of mutual hatred between the East and the West had generated



the highest weapons build-up in the history.



The Soviets had guns coming out of deamon hole.



Huge stock piles and now no enemy.



How many Kalashnikovs do you have?






It's more like a one



No, it is a four.



It is whatever we say it is, because no one else will know the difference



      Kalashnikovs for battalion.  Your stocks dangerously depleted Dimitri.



You sure there are more in the factory.



Some will work it home..... What happens then?



We'll cut them in.



The end of the Cold War was beginning of the highest time in arms dealing



Arms bizzare was in open



Guided missiles. Unguided missiles. Mortars. Mines. Armored personnel carriers.



whole tank divisions.



I'll tell you what I do. Buy isx, you get one free



I even landed a squadron of helicopter gun ships.



The most sophisticated fighting machines.



Built for war with America that never happened.



Son, get off there before you get hurt



I can take it apart with my eyes closed.



Thanks to me, it finally get to shoot in anger



I have a feeling it wasn't what Comrade Lennin had in mind



when he advocated the redistribution of wealth



But, I wasn't the only one offering crash course in capitalism



I had rivals.



Inform your commanding officer that Simeon Weisz is here to meet him



You don't know who I am, do you?



I don't give a fuck who you are



You're late.



So it appears



Thank you



My pleasure.



You sell guns?



May be you'd like to come to my room and I'll show you my...






You look a little lost Simeon. Is the world changing too fast?



I am here



Not all of you, I think. You have gotten so rich selling for the CIA



you can't seem to get that ideology completely out of your head



All the Cold War had its uses. Got the tensions frozen.



Now it is harder to determine which side one is on.



Things have become more complicated



No. It has gotten simpler.



There is no place in gun running for politics anymore Simeon



I saw the leftist and rightist.



I saw the pacifist, but they are not regular customers



Of course, you are not true internationalist



until you supply weapons to kill your own countrymen



This current state of chaos won't last forever.



will have to be order.



Instead of cutting each other's throat



may be beneficial if we work together



What do you think?



You know what I think?



I think you are the amateur now



I think you should go with your instincts,



with your first instinct



I am the same man who was not good enough for you before



and I am just not good enough for you now



The problem with gun runners going to war is that



there is no shortage of ammunition



This was the chaos that the old guard had always feared



As far as they were concerned, I was giving arms dealers a bad name



but they could hardly report me to the business bureau



In Ukraine wasn't the only former state with unpaid army



and stockpiles of guns.



There was Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Belaruss.



All there for the taking.



Of all the weapons in the vast Soviet arsenal



nothing was more profitable than of the mark Kalashnikova



model of     . More commonly known as AK-   or Kalashnikov



It's the world's most popular assault rifle.



A weapon of fighters' love



An elegantly simple   pound of algemation of forged steel and plywood



It doesn't break, jam or overheat.



It will shoot whether it is covered in mud or filled with sand



It's so easy. Even a child can use it.



And, they do. The Soviets put the gun on the calling.



Mozambique put it on their flag.



Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become



the Russian people's greatest export.



After that comes vodtka, caviar, suicidal novelists



One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars.



What fucking documents?



You listen to me, Lieutenant.



You keep them there. For as long as you can!



Fight to the death! Moscow is behind us!



It's an order!



I thought you were supposed to be watching out for those people



How can I? You keep selling my helicopters.



You are too greedy Yuri



I can't hold him forever



I have got paperwork



Not for the gunships.



You know the penalty for



selling the military helicopter is a major violation



Military helicopter?!



It's not a military helicopter. It's a rescue helicopter



Get to work, son!



No problem.



The laws are on our side



OK. I wanna see your papers



No, no. Put that away. I see your papers



Yuri Orlov.



Mr. Orlov. Always in the wrong place in the right time.



What the fuck is this?



We've met before. Off the coast of Colombia



What was the name of that freight. I can't remember.



Was it KONO? or the Kristol?



The crew called that vessel a lot of names.



None of them repeatable by my company



Answer the question.



Ohh! New MP . Would you like silencer for that?



I need to see your papers.



Get the fuck off me






End user certificate for this aircraft states Burkino Fassaou



Nice.Very nice. Did you type that by yourself?



The helicopter is to be used in humanitarian missions



Ohh? So you are humanitarian?






This is a military aircraft.



Not anymore.



Listen to the nephew.



What can they do with military hardware by converting to civilian



Anyone wants dive with this baby now is food dropper to



And this stuff over here? Is that going to Burcino Fassaou as well?



Ahh! Two different client and two different address.



That is just a coincidence. Is that it?



You take me for complete fucking fool.



Not complete Sir. Do I hesitate to tell you your job.



I must point out. When shipped seperately, the weapons and the aircraft



both comply with the current Interpol trade standarts and practices.



We both know that is an obscene bureaucratic loophole



It's gonna be closed any Goddamn day.



But it's not closed. While certain people might interpret this cargo



suspicious. Thank God, we are living in a world where suspicion alone



does not constitute a crime. And, where men like you respect the rule of law



I was as guilty as sin, but Valentine couldn't prove it.



He was the rarest breed of law enforcement officer.



The type who knew I was breaking the law,



but wouldn't break it himself to bust me






Valentine wasn't the only one trying to put me out of business



My Uncle had turned out a half dozen rival arms dealers



Sometimes with offers better than mine. But to the Dimitri



You couldn't put a price on loyalty



What was  he doing here?



He is hoping to bid your offer.



I told him to go and have intercourse with himself



But, Yuri, you need to make more payoffs



They are too many.



There are more VCRs, cigarettes. I left them in your new car



Yuri, even your enemy was admiring that car.



I am the luckiest man alive.



You are.









Baby? You know what time it is?



Sorry, I



How is that? Your audition?



Now going in another direction. Direction that someone who can act



They don't deserve you



Where are you?



Is everything OK?



A rough day at the office



Come home?






How is Nickie?



Misses you. We both do.



It's lonely without you here. You know I don't like nights



But, ever since my parents.



Yuri, what is that?



A party. I better go.



Just wanted to call and hear your voice



Kiss Nickie for me.



I love you



It's a ..... didn't die with my Uncle.



After the wall came down,    billion dollars worth of arms were stolen



and resold from Ukraine alone



One of the greatest hights of the   th century






Primary market was Africa.



   major conflicts involving    countries in less than a decade.



A gun runner's wet dream.



At the time the West couldn't care less. They had a white war



on what was left of Yugoslavia



I did the Balkan my business in Liberia



Land of the free. Originally established as a homeland for



freed American slaves. It has been enslaved by one dictator or another



ever since.



The latest was American educated, self-declared President Andre Baptiste



Mr. Yuri.



My father would like to meet you



What an honor! Thank him. But unfortunately I have other business



It's a shame. It's a very busy schedule.



It's not, how to say, option



My father is easily offended.



My schedule just freed up.



President Baptiste was my best customer



but I was in no hurry to meet him



He got the reputation for rutinely hacking of the limbs those who opposed him



His   years civil war has been described as



relentless campaign of sadistic wanting violence



That kind of sums up Andie for me



The clock is interesting



It is made of a palmer composite. Many of my clients feel that they can go through



airport security without seeing a lot of bells and whistles.



Personally, I do not recommend that.



On the other hand, if you are looking for traditional wheel gun



there is no substitute for six inches of muzzle energy of     mag



I mean, of course, it will never jam



Why did you that?



What did you say?



Now, you gonna have to buy it. It is a used gun



How can I sell used gun?



A used gun? A used gun?



That's a good one.



You know? There is no discipline with the youth today.



I tried to set an example, but it is difficult huh?



Personally, I blame MTV.



A used gun?



I think you and I, we can do business



If I thought I was scared of Andrei Senior, I knew I was scared of



Andrei Junior. Like father, like son!



The guava doesn't fall far from the tree.



He was also a cannibal. They say Andrei would give



They give the super human strength.



Monrovia itself was like being on a new planet.



Planet Monrovia. From the temprature, it was obviously planet close to the sun



I rearyly saw another white man. And, I never left town alone.



Outside town was hell of the edge of hell



I didn't want anything in gazing there.



This is your hotel. Two stucks



Do you bring the gun of Rambo?



Part one, two or three.



I've only seen part one. The M  .



Would you like an armoured person bullets?



Please. My father left a welcoming present to you






My God!



When I get to America I will not live in Printwood



Second floor



In the most AIDS infested region of the globe, one in four is infected



Andrei's idea of



He put a young Neeman and young Naomi in my bed



And, no condomn within     miles



Hi, Mr. Yuri.






We will be happy to make you happy.



I can't. I'd love to. But I can't



Yuri, You don't have anything



Hey, no!



Don't you really like it?



What if I have AIDS? Don't you worry?



You worry too much



Why do you worry about something that can kill you in ten years



We know so many things that can kill you today



Now, how can we make you happy?



By Levi



These are my Kalashnikov kids, my boy bridgades



I can see what you are thinking



We need every man we can get



Even if they are not man?



A bullet from    year old just as effective as



one from our    year old



often more effective



No one can stop bath of blood



It's not bath of blood. It's bloodbath



Thank you



But, I prefer it my way



I am not going to pay your asked price



Besides, market is already flooded with your Kalashnikovs



Do you realize in some parts of my country you can get one



for the price of a chicken



But you can't just look at the unit price



You forget auxilary costs, end user certificates that we forge the notary



shell company setup, insurance purchase, piles of cruise hired.



not to mention the bribes



You cannot get a nut and bolt out of Eastern bloc without a bribe



There is one bribe for the nut another for the bolt.



Andy, Andy, listen to me. This is an expensive proposition






I'm going to pay you in timber or stone



It's kind of hard to get a tree truck in my hand luggage



I know you are planing a new offensive.



If you can delay a week



I can get you armored personnel carriers



It greatly reduce your casualties.



And, give you a significant strategic advantage



You know, they call me the Lord of War.



But, perhaps, it is you.



It's not Lord of War. It's Warlord



Thank you. But, I prefer it my way.



Conflict diamonds are common currency in West Africa



Also referred to as blood diamonds



Since bloodshed is with a generally financed.



By the late     s, my wealth caught up to my lies about my wealth.



Even surpassed my lies.



I could even afford to be patron of the arts



I can't believe it. Of course, it's wonderful.



I just. I didn't expect it to happen so soon



Yes, that would be great too, yeah.



It's wonderful. Thank you so much.



Yuri, that was the dealer on the phone



She sold my first painting.



That is fantastic!



Well, who bought it?



It's someone important. They wanna remain anonymous



So, wonderful



How was your trip?



You know same all same all.



Where is Nicky?



Ohh! In bed. I'm sorry. He couldn't stay up.



Well, it is best.



My first painting



I'm officially an artist.



This calls for a drink



What doesn't?






Yuri, this is ... uhh






Candy, of course



Any friend of my brother is ... uhh



a friend of my brother



You have a beautiful everything



Yes, he does



Yes, I do



I'm gonna kiss Nicky good night






How are you brother?



No. You know. Still the resident family fuckup.



Yeah. Well. I guess someone has to do it.



Well, good night



Hey, Eva knows, right?



I never wanna say anything, right?



She doesn't have to know. She understands.



She is a survivor. Like me.



She may be a survivor. But, she is not like you



Really? She doesn't know how you pay all this.



We don't talk about it.



How many car salesman talk about their work.huh?



How many cigarette saleman? Both their products kill more people



every year than mine. At least, mine has safety switch.



Those guys can live there work at the office



So can I.



Goddam! You are good!



You know who they are



You almost have me convinced



Could you... uh? Could you help me out?









Why what?



Why? Why? Why?



I don't know.



Why what?



Why you so fucked up all the time?



Because I am.



I didn't know how much Eva really knew and



how much she ignored. She never questioned how I got



in transport business could afford    qarat diamond earrings



I guess she didn't really wanna hear the answer



Mostly, she seemed content that I was a good provider



and, as far as she was concerned loyal.



Despite the other women, I have always made love to Eva



as if she was the only one.



I am not saying I didn't have set backs



It's not called gun running for nothing



You gotta be fast on your feet.



Some revolutions blow over before the guns even get there



There is nothing more expensive for an arms dealer than peace



Truce? What do you mean truce? Guns are already on their way.



Peace talks.



Alright. Forget it! I'll re-route the shipment to the Balkans



When they see they're gonna have a war, they keep their word



Of course, new breed of gun runner requires new breed of cop.



Henry! Take Park Avenue



Take him on a tour to New Jersey



Yuri. There are men going through our garbage cans



It's probably some reporters looking for somebodyelse



I have a feeling they don't work for tabloids.



Yuri. Is there anything I should be worried about?



No. Nothing.






I love you.



I love you too






I was now best merchant of death alive






I didn't own my own plane, I owned the fleet



Running guns in Liberia, Sierra Leone or the Ivory Coast



at least once a week



Most trips I had phoney paperwork. If the deadline was tight



I had to cut corners, I had no paperwork at all.



But I wasn't overly concerned.



There was hardly any radar over most of Africa



Even fewer people to watch it



Charlie, Eco, India, Reroute to Kabala Airport



on heading    . Comply immediately!



Yuri. What the fuck is going on?



Colonel Suddern. It's Yuri.



I'm sorry to call you in this number. But I got Interpol all over my ass



I can't help you right now. It's not a good time.



Not a good time?






Charlie, Eco, India, Comply immediately!



This is your last warning!



When was the first fucking warning?



Flap your wings if you intend to comply.



I'm putting us down.



You land, we are all going away. I don't have paperwork



We are flying fucking bomb.



They are firing bullets at out bullets



I'm putting us down.



OK, OK ! Fuck !



This is Charlie-Eco-India. Request re-route to Kabala Airport



Bearin    .



There. The highway. It is our only hope.



Are you fucking mad? A butthole will set us off



You ..... yourself Alexi. You are the best.



You are the shit Alexi. You are the shit! You are the shit!



You are the shit!



Of course, Alexi wasn't the best. He'd come   nd out of    at



Moscow Fligh School.



What is he doing? Is this guy nuts?



I can't land there safe



Kabal is only    minutes away. He can't get far.



I want a truck and tar map



We're gonna be OK.



Where are you going?



As far from the evidence as we can get.



Wait! There is not gonna be an evidence.



Come here, come here!



Don't  be shy. Free sample



Help yourself OK! Free sample. Tell your friends



Come on ! Help yourselves!



No charge! Everything goes!



Guys, guys! Come on!



Move it! Guns! Grenades! Take them all!



Everything goes for free!



What a cargo crew Heathrow Airport does in a day



took a bunch of malnursed Sierra Leonean locals ten minutes.



By the time Agent Valentine got there, you could find more guns



on plane full of quakers.



Yuri Orlov. Ouch! Fuck! Fuck!



You run from us?



No, NBC No!



You can run with no legs



Let me make him disappear Mr. Valentine



Around here, people disappear all the time.



I can't do that.



Look where we are. Who will know?



We will.



He is gonna get what is coming to him



I am not as certain



What's the charge?



What are you doing in Sierra Leon?



I am on Safari



Yeah? You are hunting wild beast with submachine gun



Do you also work with the park service?



Hunting without a license. Is that the charge?



Why are we playing games? You traffic arms






Trade. Traffic. You get rich by giving the poorest people on the planet



the means to continue killing each other.



Do you know why I do what I do?



There are more prestigous assignments. Keeping track of nuclear arsenals



You think that more critical to world security.



But, it's not.



No. Nine out of ten, our victims today are killed with assault rifles



and small arms. Like yours.



Does nuclear missiles, they're sitting in their silos.



Your AK-  . That is the real weapon of mass destruction



I don't want people death, Agent Valentine.



I don't put a gun to anybody's head and make them shoot.



.....But shooting was better for business.



But, I prefer people to fire my guns in mass.



Just as long as they are firing.



Can I go now? You got nothing on me.



Except cuffs



Since you are so concerned with the law, you must know that



I am legally permitted to hold you for    hours without charging you



You might ask why I would do that.



I can assure you, it is not because I enjoy your company because I don't



No. The reason why I would delay you for every second of the permissible



   hours is I am delaying your deadly trade in the deaths of your victims



I don't think of it is taking a day from you. But giving a day to them



Some innocent men, women,or child is gonna



have an extra day on this earth



because you are not free



So. I will see you i    hours and    minutes



Valentine knew he did not have to guard me.



There was nowhere to go.



May be he was hoping locals would tear me apart



But they were too busy with plane



Like parking your car in a certain neighborhood in the Bronx.



You just don't do it



The way I looked at it, it is the way of Africa



Maybe life. Everything that comes from the earth



eventually returns



Even a   -ton Antenov    cargo plane



A gift. For you.



You know, you've arrived just in time.



I am so affraid that he might die before you go to a chance



to kill him



This man came here hoping to take your place



Is that not so?



No. I am not here to suppy Mr. Baptiste



I am here to supply his enemies



I fear it is a sale I shall never complete



He killed your blood. Your uncle



Then he tried to kill you






You want us to let him go






No. No. I...



You do want him dead. You just don't want to it yourself



So. We will do this together.



This will be a bonding experience.



You know you can stop this anytime that you want



But I don't think you do



Just say the word



Say it.









They will get you another room, my friend



What a match nice of you



He ordered you braun-braun









What is it?



Mix of cocaine and the gun powder



They give it to the young boys before they go to battle



They do anyting



Some other time



I suggest you try to .... once Mr. Yuri






Because it is your gunpowder



Even before that I started doing a lot of cocaine in West Africa



I never tried braun-braun before. And, I never killed a man either.



Ooh! I didn't do anything, did I?



I didn't do anything, did I?



You didn't do much.



What? Are you sick?






Ask the white man. He will know



Sir! Will my hand grow back?






Remember, Yuri! Take sides!



Stop! He is unconscious



Fuck Andre



I'm sorry. They don't usually do that.



Let me look at him. Maybe I can fix it. Let me see him



It's the magazine.



Fuck you!



I started to feel I have been cursed



The curse of invincibilty



Nicky, please go to your room



I don't believe you



Can you prove any of this



Mr. Orlov goes to a lot of trouble to make his business



look legitimate. Even to you?



Perhaps, especially to you



I don't expect to find anything here today



So, what do you want?



I was hoping that you would help me



I understand that your parents died tragically



The illegal firearms used to murder your mother and father



were taken from man like your husband



I would like you to leave



O.K. ! Gentlemen!






Eva, what is wrong?



I can't wear the cloth. I can't wear the jewellery



I can't drive the car. I can't live in this house



Everything has got blood on it



Blood on it?



What is the matter with you?



Don't be so melodramatic



It is melodramatic



I told you. These people. It's political.



They lie. They are liars. Look at me. Look



They lie to make themselves look good.



You can't trust them



It's not just...mmm?



Don't worry. Jack didn't say anything



They didn't have to



I sell people means to defend themselves Eva.



That's all



Yuri. I see the news, I see those pictures.






There is nothing illegal about what I do



I don't care if it is legal



It's wrong



Please! Stop!



It makes no difference if I stop



Someone will take my place the next day



Let them. We have enough



It's not about the money



And, what is it?



I am good at it



I feel like all I have done my whole life is be pretty



I mean, all I have done is be born



....not much good as mother



come to think of it that I am not that pretty anymore



I have failed everything Yuri



But, I won't fail as a human being



My enemy has finally found the weapon that could hurt me



For the next six months I stopped running guns



I went legitimate



This is an untapped market. I am talking over   million



cubic meters of timber first year alone. Over     exploitable



species. Between you and me. Oil. Ten thousand barrels a month



He must be lying. He is talking.



Listen gas reserves of Ivory Coast that OPEC doesn't know about



Phone numbers are all checked out. It's all legal



No wonder Valentine was confused



Thank God. There are still legal ways



to exploit developing countries



But the only problem with an honest buck is that they are so



hard to make. The margins are too low. Too many people doing it



Still. I promised Eva



Yuri. President of Liberia is on his way up



He is early. I will be back in a minute






What the fuck are you doing here, Andre?



We are here for peace talks at the United Nations



So, at the same time you thought to drop in your arms dealer



I was beginning to wonder that was still your profession



You know you are a hard man to get hold of all of a sudden



It is a shame



My son and I, we were hoping to do a little shopping.



While we are here in New York



You know they are watching you



Yes. I know they blame me for everything those hypocrates.



Witch hunt



Hostilities have escalated



They are making it very difficult for me to re-supply



That requires a man of your rare ingenuity



I can't help you. I'm sorry



I understand.



But, you should know this.



Due to our present situation we are compelled to be unusually generous



So, see you soon



Lord of War



You still haven't brought me the gun of Rambo



At four and half months old, a human fetus has a reptile's tail



A remenant of revolution



Maybe that's what I couldn't escape.



You can fight a lot of enemies and survive



Prep you fight your biology, you always lose



You guys are waiting to say goodbye



and I'm leaving for another ten minutes



Sorry, Nicky is ......



You know I'm kind of glad that you are going



You've been here so long,



you started to get on my nerves



This whole concession should be wrapped by Thursday



I'll be back for the weekend. We'll go somewhere.



The sea.



That will be fine



Hey, you trust me, right?



She looked me directly in the eye, the way I've looked



thousand customs officials, government bureaucrats, and



law enforcement agents.



Yes. I trust you



And, she lied without flinching



See you.



Bye papa



She learned from the past



That's him



Where are we going mama?



It's a game honey



Like hide and seek?



Yes. Like hide and seek



I can always sense when I am being tailed



I know what to look for



But, I've never been tailed by woman I love



I can put myself in Eva'a place



She might have understood if the combination was



last four digits of my social security number, my birthday



even her birthday. But not Nicholai's



My son's birthday unlocked with the government later



described as a catalogue of carnage.



Nicky. Stay right here.



Come on Nicky.



Come to see other helpless?



I miss your bosh.



Mom and dad say you are clean



Yeah. You too



You went legit huh?



It's hard to believe



That's because it is not true



Only you know



I'm leaving tonight on a job. I want you to come



I can't.



I got a girlfriend. I think she might be the one



Plus, I am thinking of opening my place.



Maybe this triple help. It's good money



Yuri. I've given my word.



No one has to know



We will tell them we are going for the law and order



What do you need me for all of a sudden?



I wanna stay  because fucked up



More than usual.



I can't trust anybody



I need you to watch my back



Brothers in arms









Welcome back.



Welcome both of you



Welcome to democracy



Democracy? What have you been drinking, Andy?



You have not seen the news. You know they accuse me of



rigging elections. But after this. With your Florida



Your Supreme Court of Kangroos now. The US will shut up forever.



How do you do this, Yuri? Huh?



How do you do this when they are watching all over my airspace?



Where there is a will, there is a weapon.



Come on. Where is my fucking money?



When it is delivered.



It is delivered



This is not for me. This is for my neighbors to the West



The West? We are going to Sierra Leona?



Ohh yes.



And, my son. Baptiste Junior will go with you



to make the proper introductions



We have no trucks.



You will. As soon as we get the food out of them.



Gun of Rambo. Listen Yuri. You are man of your word



So, we are we going.



RUF. Freedom fighters



Every faction in Africa call themselves with these noble names



Liberation This, Patriotic That, Democratic Republic of Something Rather



I guess they can know now what they usually are



Federation of World Suppressors in the Last Bunch of Oppressors



Often the most barbaric atrocities occur when both call



themselves freedom fighters.



Right. Have     units. Brand new. Right out of box.



All as clear as this. What have you got?



God! Jesus!



O Jesus!



Yuri. I need to talk to you



Not now.






Excuse me.






We can't do this deal.



Fuck, we can. What is the matter with you?



Look! Look over there!



As soon as we hand off the guns, these people are going to die



It's not our business



They killed the boy just now as young as Nicky.



What is the hold up?



There is no hold up. I'll be right there



Vitali. It is what we always know



We can't control what they do.



No. Not today that we can't. We can. They are right there



What do you thing they will do to us if we back out?



They'll kill us.



If we go ahead what do you think they will do to them



We gotta do something



Please, for fuck's sake



It's not our fight



Please. Brothers in arms



What is he saying?



It's the deal. My brother is not happy with the terms



but we are working it out. It's nothing



Right? It's nothing






You're right.



This is not our fight.



Right. OK. What's the deal? Three angel RPGs



    assault rifles and     grenades



I thought it was      grenades



I was so caught up in the deal, I never realized



what was going on in Vitali's head



I thought it was      grenades






Come to think about it. Maybe I never understood



what was going in his head



I beg your pardon



May I see another stone?



One thing I do understand for certain is that Vitali



broke the cardinal rule of gun running



Never pick up a gun enjoying the customers



What are you doing?



Something for Yuri



Step away. Slow.



No, Vit!



Only half the guns were gone. So, I was still entitled



to have the diamonds.



If I took them I was lost.



If I left them I was lost



They played out how Vitali predicted



But, then, half dozen other massacres happened in Sierra Leon



that week. You can't stop them all.



In my experience, you can' stop any of them.



They say, evil prevails when good man failed to act



What the odd says, evil prevails.



I now shared more in common with the leader of that country



God seemed to have foresaken



We saw something in each other neither one of us liked



or, maybe we were just looking in the mirror






I paid Monrovian doctor    remove bullets from Vitali's body



and write a bogus death certificate.



I should have paid him more



I smuggled millions of rounds of ammunition



and the bullet that lends me in jail found under my dead



brother's rib.



Yuri Orlov



We are with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobbacco and Firearms.



Let me guess. This is not about Alcohol and Tobacco



Crimean Restaruant






Both my sons are dead



There are only two tragedies in life



One is not getting what you want



The other is getting it



This is one of yours



Jack Valentine finally had what he wanted



Curiously. Death certificate says he died of heart failure



For supplying false death certificate. It's not gonna hold me



You are right.



As usual you are right



Have you seen today's paper?






Fake end user certificates. Cut out companies



meticilously catalogued. They are as hardly warlord,



dictator, despot anywhere in the world you are not on the first



name basis with.



It was your wife, your trophy wife



that led us to the prize



It's not her fault. She is just easier to follow than you are



May I?



Yeah. Go ahead!



Enjoy it!






This. Tell me I am everything you despised



That I am the personification of evil. That I am, what?



responsible for the breakdown of the fabric of society and world order



I am a one-man genocide.



Say everything you wanna say to me now



Because you don't have more



Are you paying attention? Or, are you dillusional?



You have broken every arms embargo written. There is enough



evidence here to put you away for consecutive life sentences



You are gonna spend the next    years of your life going



from a cell to a courtroom before even start serving your time



I don't think you fully appreciate the seriousness of



your situation.



My family has disowed me.



My wife and son have left me.



My brother is dead



Trust me. I fully appreciate the seriousness of my situation



But I promise you. I won't spend a single second in courtroom



You are dillusional



I like you Jack. Maybe not. But I understand you



Let me tell you what is gonna happen



This way you can prepare yourself






Soon there is gonna be a knock on that door



and you will be called outside



In the hall, there will be a man who outranks you



First, he will complement you on the fine job you have done



and you are making the world safer place



that you are to receive commendation and a promotion



and then, he is going to tell you that I am to be released



You're gonna protest. You'll probably threaten to resign



But in the end, I will be released.



The reason I will be released is the same reason you think



I'll be convicted. I do rub shoulders some of the most vile



sadistic man, calling themselves leaders today



But some of those men, are the enemies of your enemies



While the biggest arms dealer in the world is your boss



The President of United States



which ships more merchandise in a day than I do in a year



sometimes it is embarassing to have his fingerprints on the guns



sometimes he needs a freelancer like me to supply forces



he can't be seen supplying.



So? You call me evil, but unfortunately for you



I am a necessary evil.



I would tell you to go to hell.



But I think you are already there



Pleasure doing business with you



Most people are happy just to get out of jail



I expect to paid to leave. I am not a fool.



I know that they just needed me that day that



they wouldn't make me a scapegoat the next. But I was back



doing what I do best.



Umbrellas to the Sahara?



Sun umbrellas



You know who is going to inherit the earth



Arms dealers



Because everyone else is too busy killing each other



That is the secret to survival



Never go to war.



Especially with yourself
