    Exquisitely shot but just so forgettable and blah for a thriller with an intriguing enough premise. Clive Owen is just doing his intense thing he's done in many better films, he was kind of annoying me with how serious he is all the time, calm down bro! Naomi Watts is given an incredibly inconsequential character when all is said and done and for me it was a rare lackluster performance from an actress I consistently like.

    It bears pointing out that, despite what the cover and myriad promotional posters might have you believe (SPOILER ALERT), Clive Owen never fires a machine pistol while in the company of Naomi Watts, and specifically never does so with her while in the Guggenheim.

    Acts like you should be invested in these characters and ideas without ever getting you there, and the leaden narrative threads are serviced by simply cutting from one euro-futurist NGO building to another, where people have…

    Globe trotting cloak and dagger stuff with Clive Owen as an Interpol agent investigating a major European bank that dabbles in illegal arms deals and assassinations. A technically well made flick with lots of purty Euro scenery and one EPIC shootout scene set at the Guggenheim Museum in New York but otherwise this one's a bit on the dry side.

    Undone by its anti-climactic final act.

    Tom Tykwer’s The International is a tense, fascinating global thriller and an absorbingly hypnotic tale of coporate greed, murder, corruption and the odyssey to expose the truth.

    Clive Owen stars as Louis Salinger, a British Interpol agent stationed in Lyons, France who, as the film opens, is knocked unconscious just after his partner is poisoned by a passer-by on a busy Berlin street. He is aided by a Manhattan district attorney named Eleanor Whitman (Naomi Watts), a loving wife and…

    Von Tom Tykwer solide in Szene gesetzter und streckenweise auch spannenender Thriller mit einer guten Leistung von Clive Owen. Kann man sich gut anschauen.

    Pros: incredible location filming, great cinematography, intriguing premise, Owen's always welcome, doesn't reach for Bourne-style shakycam silliness so the action is more grounded. Cons: too convoluted, too dour (like Bourne), main characters relatively dull, too many unnecessary characters come and go without great impression. Overall, well worth a look, esp the Guggenheim bit.

    An underrated thriller where Clive Owen fights a bank. Well put together and highly enjoyable.
