Product Description


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

4.0 out of 5 stars The International - Blue Ray Sept. 2 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skit ip July 24 2009
I watche dthe trailer before renting it. The trailer really looked like this would be a good movie similar to an agent fighting against a big company.

Well the story is that, but there's no freaken action! You've seen all the action there is in the trailer itself. On that point I was highly disappointed. The story moved slowly, I hated Naomi Watts. The only good thing about this movie was Clive Owen. Its the only reason why I finished te movie becasue I wanted to see if things would eventually get interesting.

Well, it didn't.

So to end this I would definately skip this and watch something else. I feel like I lost 90 minutes of my life for nothing.
