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.

Clive Owen was good. What was Naomi Watts in there for? I like Armin Mueller-Stahl and I know he is getting old but, he needs to speak up! I could barely hear him. Initially thought it was going to be good but it fizzled out and I was bored. The shootout scene was fun to watch though hardly believable. Clive, what are you doing? Your last three movies sucked!

The Hollywood Reporter
Punctuated with bursts of explosive energy, this is a contained, cerebral film. Full Review

The New York Times
So undistinguished that the moments you remember best are those that you wish another, more original director had tackled. Full Review

Washington Post
The compulsively watchable Owen makes for an ideal leading man of both action and angst. The film's eye-popping set piece, a shootout at the Guggenheim Museum, is an extravagantly choreographed valentine to philistines everywhere. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Though not as action-packed as some thrillers, The International is noteworthy for its unusually scenic and architecturally dazzling locations. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The International possesses the look and feel of a thriller, but not the heart or soul of one. Full Review
