Whoever called this an action movie or even a thriller obviously doesnt know what action is!
Numerous meaningless scences and simply no action at all...

I'd rather call it "The Story of a lonely Sinner", this way no one would expect action and furthermore wouldnt be disappointed.

The music was nice, it was made by Herbert Grönemeyer, a german singer.

"25/12 I loved watching Thekla Reuten, a very captivating actress and a great presence, and I think her and Clooney's moments together had some real electricity, the scene where they are trying out the gun is definitely the high point of the movie for me - that one moment when Clooney is shooting and Reuten is staring over at him is full of sparks - and it was a real shame that there weren't that many scenes with her or between those two. The romance between Clooney and Violante Placido on the o"
