Oh yes, it is bleak

6 years, 3 months ago at Oct 29 14:47

The International is one bleak film. Tom Tykwer is an exceptional director, and this film proves it. The movie's greatest benefactor is it's script and Tykwer himself. First off, the script provides us with two interesting things; the main character is not a regular secret agent who kicks all sorts of arse in any given situation. Instead Clive Owen's agent is essentially a man who's been through t... read more

"Sometimes you find your destiny on the road you took to avoid it."

A dubious international bank with unethical practises lies at the centre of this cracking action-thriller that draws evident inspiration from such films as Michael Clayton and the Jason Bourne series. Helmed by German director Tom Tykwer (to date probably best known as the man behind the acclaimed high-voltage thril... read more

“This movie looked quite promising, but in the end turns out to be very disappointing. Too many flaws in the story for it to be even remotely believable. Acting performances are decent though, although at times Watts overacts (IMHO).” read more

"November 13 This wasn't bad I guess. The acting was good and it was well-made, but I still thought it felt like your average thriller. The movie wasn't that exciting in my opinion. The shootout scene was the best part in the movie, but when the scene ends then the excitement wears off."

Interesting failures (25 movies items)

" Note: I thought "Perfume" was an amazing movie and I was really curious about what would Tom Tykwer do with his next flick. This sounded to be like a nice conspiracy thriller but the end-result was rather disappointing, due to a rather weak story. Why should you watch it anyway? Tom Tykwer is a very good director and simply cannot direct a bad movie. There is an amazing action scene taking place in a museum which makes it worth it watching the whole movie. And of course, a thriller with Clive"

Films I Really Wish I Could Love... (8 movies items)

" I remember being insanely psyched about this movie a few weeks before its release. A person who read the script described it as "Michael Clayton meets Jason Bourne". Compelling drama and plotting mixed with delicious action? Count me in. But the film just suffers from bad structuring, and filmmaking that's too middle of the road. It's only sporadically thrilling. I wish it was done better..."
