Marvellous slow-burning European film,
This review is from: The American [DVD] (DVD)
If you're expecting a brash American blockbuster with George Clooney wise-cracking his way through it, think again.
This ia a very European film, beautifully observed, beautifully filmed, slow moving and sometimes low on dialogue. George Clooney gives a superb, subdued performance as the insular assassin hiding out in stunning Italian countryside. The Italian and Belgian leading ladies are also superb - and ever so sexy.
I feel this is a marvellous film, one of the best of 2010. However, I accept that some movie-goers would have preferred a brash guns-and-explosions American extravaganza, and those people are likely to be a little puzzled and perhaps even slightly disappointed. This film probably has more in common with "Cinema Paradiso" than with "Ocean's Eleven". A teen movie it ain't.

George Clooney never ceases to amaze me!
I loved this film! I was shocked by one of the scenes in the beginning because I just did not see it coming. This set the tone of the film for me. You did not know what you was going to get.
I Rented it for three days and watched it at every opportunity. Will happily watch it again and again.
