The International

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Just back from seeing The International, a twisty euro thriller that jumps between Europe and New York weaving the tail of a bank which is tangled up in some very shady deals. Clive Owen gives a strong performance and is ably supported by an excellent cast. The pacing is deliberately uneven which avoids the danger of a predictable ABC action film where every twist is sign posted before it arrives. The down side is that the films biggest set piece is somewhat earlier than the lower key end.
