    A decent thriller that should have been dazzling, is nothing if not topical. show more

    Won't go down as an action thriller for the record books, but it's a pretty good one for right now. First of all, the villain is a bank. How's that for timing? show more

    Though not as action-packed as some thrillers, The International is noteworthy for its unusually scenic and architecturally dazzling locations. show more

    Clive Owens and Naomi Watts had good chemistry, which always helps make a film endurable. I found the movie to the pretty good, not Clive's best of course, but I thought it was better than just average. For people who have trouble catching pertinent dialog... try turning the captions on, it helps catch every word, which matters in some of these thriller-action-type movies.

    Good movie, very straight forward!! Awesome events unfolding... you need to follow up with details, Shoot'em all scene was awesome!, Names of countries and IBBC seem to be real, I just wonder how real the Story is?!! If it was that would be scary... In the END, good movie to watch if you like Politics and World Wide Events...

    This movie was great. There were so many events unfolding, and if you don't keep up with the plot you can get lost. It exposed so many levels of corruption. Society either is numb too or just ignore. Conspiracy and corruption was uncovered you cant but wonder, how deep, and how to get out from its influence. it is a ********** film and challengs you to think.
