Lord of War (2005)

7 quotes

Yuri Orlov: Even when I was up against an overzealous agent, I had a number of methods for discouraging a search. I routinely mislabeled my armshipments "Farm machinery", and I have yet to meet the lowely paid customs official who'll open a container marked "Radioactive waste." But my personal favorite is the combination of week-old potatoes and tropical heat.

Yuri Orlov: Out of all the weapons in the vast Soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable the the Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947, more commonly known as the the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle, a weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple nine pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam or overheat, it will shoot whether it's 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 a coin, Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian peoples' greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar and suicidal novelists. One thing was for sure: no one was lining up to buy their cars.

Mistakes

When Yuri is narrating about selling weapons for the US government (this was around the scene when he sells M-16's by the kilo), he mentions Lieutenant Colonel Southern. However, when you see the him, he has Colonel rank, which is a silver eagle. The Lieutenant Colonel rank is a silver leaf, not an eagle.
