A decent thriller that should have been dazzling, is nothing if not topical. show more
Motion is in copious supply -- a frenzied shootout at Manhattan's Guggenheim Museum grows interminable -- but the workings of the abstract plot are unfathomable, the characters are unpleasant and a couple of assassinations leave us as cold as the corpses. show more
Where "Run Lola Run" was like a perpetual-motion machine, The International seems to forever be stopping in its own tracks. Tykwer takes coffee breaks to explain the convoluted and dicey plot. 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.
