The main character of this movie really is the architecture. It imposes itself into the story making the main actors little more than pawns to be moved between fantastically futuristic looking buildings.
The budget to shoot this movie in such locations as the Volkswagon HQ/"theme" park in Wolfsburg, Germany, to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey, via Berlin, New York City and Milan must have been blown on flights. I won't give anything away but the Guggenheim scene is unreal but watch the extras on how they did it is even more mindblowing.

Having said all that the acting is terrific from Clive Owen's world weary intensity to Naomi Watts' single mindedness and, unlike mail-it-in Hollywood movies, they don't end up in bed together which makes their working realtionship seem far more real.

The bad guys all seem like fairly normal family men which makes them all the more evil.

The movie sort of falls down a tad on the plot as you wonder how a large bank (it's loosely based on the real BCCI banking scandal) is brought down by just two people. Seems quite implausible no matter how good Watts and Owen are in portraying their roles.

The DVD is worth getting as the extras offer a tour of the architectural delights, the whole Guggenheim scene explained and a 30-min behind-the-scenes makin of as well as the usual commentary track.

By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

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.
