Product Description

Amazon.ca

The International is actually two movies in one: A highbrow thriller about a sprawling bank that resorts to murder and arms sales to retain its power, and a sleek visual essay on how architecture and interior design shapes your perceptions. Interpol agent Louis Salinger (Clive Owen, still not quite a star despite Inside Man and Children of Men) has been on the brink of conclusive evidence against the villainous international bank, but his sources always end up dead. With the aid of a Manhattan district attorney (Naomi Watts in a woefully underwritten part), he stumbles on the trail of the bank's favorite hit man, who might provide the (literally) smoking gun Louis needs. The International starts out smooth and silky, with visual style to burn and Owen's intense fervor. The plot gradually bogs down in incoherent moralizing, but along the way there are some taut sequences, including a bloody shootout in the Guggenheim Museum where alliances shift unexpectedly. But what makes The International worth seeing is director Tom Tykwer's astute eye for public space: Chic postmodern buildings, broad Italian plazas, Turkish rooftops like mountain paths--Tykwer orchestrates actors through these architectural shapes, his hypnotic visual sense creating far more tension and excitement than the plot. Also featuring Armin Mueller-Stahl (Eastern Promises) and Ulrich Thomsen (The Celebration) as malevolent Europeans. --Bret Fetzer

“I can’t believe people say this was just okay, the movie had some Tense moments to it,
especially that shoot out, I hate saying it but you have to, no awards will be given, here,
but for entertainment value you can’t go wrong with this, Clive Owen almost always have that
scruffy look in his movies the guy loves it I’m sure, no black tie for this guy,
those “International Banks will get you every time, while you’re looking at the bank the Architecture
will change you perception of what your outcome will be of them, smart very smart,
I’m not going to list everything about who should get how many stars, I’ll give it five on different levels,
I Like It A Very Very Lot....

From reading an earlier review that this is one of the very few movies that candidly reveals bankster strategy to control the world; I bought and enjoyed this fictional action suspense film on DVD. The quality of the Blue-ray version upgrade, also in widescreen format, is excellent.

Format: DVD
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Clive Owen plays a grungy Interpol agent trying to bring down an unscrupulous bank, but keeps running into dead ends - literally.
2. Naomi Watts barely registers as an Assistant District Attorney who also wants to bring the offending bank to justice.
3. If you're looking for nookie, skip this one altogether
4. Stunning visual tour of the architecture of Berlin, Milan, the Guggenheim Museum in New York and the rooftops of Istanbul is interrupted by a silly plot about a crooked bank.
5. They should have stuck to the architecture

This is a forgettable movie despite the casting of Owen and Watts, with a plot that meanders all over the place to prove that nothing ever changes when it comes to the lust for power.

The International (English/French Language Version)

This movie is scarey! Not because it's a horror movie, but because it's believable -- the bank that controls the debt controls the world. Clive Owen is at his best. I read on one of the DVD's I own that he has "smoldering intensity" -- it's visible here. The ADA needs a haircut desperately and is easily forgettable as an actress. Of course, she didn't have much to work with in the plot. I'm glad I saw it, but to own, No. Not because it isn't a good movie, it's great action flick. For me, it's too much like the message in Enemy of the State. There's no legal way to contermand the power of the corporation. Big Brother really is in control!
