  2. There are so many things wrong with this movie that it is hard to know where to begin.

    Clive Owen plays the same character, in the same trenchcoat, that he has been playing for some time now, and much better than here. His ‘smoldering’ rage barely offsets Naomi Watts emotionally passive affect through 3/4 of the movie.

    The international intrigue of the movie is like a boilerplate script that we have all essentially seen over and over again in the last 8 years.

    The directing is horrible. Emotionally detached, though with the intent of drawing us into these international settings, there is no gravitas of any real character development throughout the environments until the very end, and then it is still washed out through a waste of good actors.

    If you want a great international intrigue movie, then rent Casino Royale, one of the greatest movies ever made, and then watch all three Bourne movies.

    If you want someone’s washed out and limp homage to those movies, then watch this one.

  3. I really wanted to like this film, I really did. However, there’s really no saving grace for this film besides Clive Owen’s acting, great cinematography, an original plot, and an outstanding shootout sequence. I have never seen a film so devoid of life. There is no humor, barely any action, and the dialogue is overly complex, bland, and lifeless. I wasn’t expecting a shoot-em-up thriller like Taken or even the 007 films, but I was expecting a smart yet entertaining thriller. ‘The International’ does manage to be smart, but TOO smart, to the point where it is just not an enjoyable film. However, if you enjoy a very intelligent political thriller with much of the plot advancing through dialogue, then ‘The International’ may be your type of movie.

    On a side note, the picture and audio quality is great. Not the best, but very impressive.

  4. I think The International was a great film mainly because Clive Owen and the actors surrounding him acted greatly throughout the film. I enjoyed the dialouge and the special effects. There was really only one down fall to this movie but the downfall is what really makes this film either good or bad for audiences and that is that there is only really a couple of high action scenes in the movie. The first is the one where Clive Owen has this insanely awesome gun battle in a museum and the second contains a lot of dialouge but is interesting and intense and that is the scene were Clive Owen manages to kill one of the main bad guys in the film (Which doesn’t really happen until the very end). I liked this film because it was interesting and the few action scenes made it flow BUT what I really didn’t like about this movie is that its very slow moving in action and it takes quite awhile to get to the good parts. I wouldn’t say this is a full on action packed, shoot em up bang bang movie but if your looking for a movie that you want to focus in on with a few gun shots here and there I think you will enjoy it. Overall the movie was great but could of included at least a few more action scenes then it did but the few action scenes that it did include sure make up for it in some big ways.

  5. Muddled plot and wooden acting by the leads aside, the movie does look fantastic on Blu Ray, reference quality picture. Its beautiful. But under the surface of that beauty, is nothing. Clive Owens is Clive Owens. There is nothing new in his performance. Its the same as every other movie he has been in since Bourne Identity. Naomi Woods has a throw away role. The studio could have saved money with a lesser known actress. The dozen or so supporting actors save the movie, making it watchable, but the story isn’t engaging. You don’t care about the good or bad guys. You just wait for the next pretty location shot. There is a blip of hope in the middle that makes you think this shouldn’t have been a box office failure. That feeling of hope doesn’t last. Save your money.
