George Clooney and Matt Damon star in this well-made but tonally flat and ultra-confusing film. It's written and directed by Traffic scribe Stephen Gaghan and focuses on several intertwining stories involving the oil industry. Unlike Traffic, it's almost impossible to follow all the elements of the plot, so it's well worth entering the cinema armed with as much knowledge of the storyline as possible.

After Arab Prince Nasir (Alexander Siddig) gives the Chinese - rather than the Americans - oil drilling rights, a huge US oil company decides to merge with a small American firm that has the Kazakhstan rights. A lawyer (Jeffrey Wright) is brought in to oversee the high profile merger and ensure that it passes investigation. Meanwhile, an old-hand CIA agent (Clooney) is given the job of taking Prince Nasir out because the Americans want to win back to drilling rights from the Chinese, but his mission isn't that easy.

After a tragedy, an energy analyst (Matt Damon) is employed by the forward-thinking Nasir to advise him on making the most from his natural resource so he can turn his country around. At the same time, a Pakistani oil employee loses his job and finds himself in training to become a suicide bomber. Confused? You certainly will be!
