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.

"Dispatched to a small Italian town to build a new powerful rifle, assassin Jack embarks on a double life that may be more relaxing than is good for him. As a real throwback to cinema of the 70's, this movie's atmospheric mood refuses to conform to the modern thriller format. There are no extensive showdowns or final pay-offs that end an adventure, choosing instead to carefully build the tension around the protagonist the viewer is aligned with until the bitter end. George Clooney is perfectly c"
