The International

cliché after cliché after cliché...

the international is obviously a perposterous thriller involving a powerful international bank who keeps making people 'dissappear'. clive owen and naomi watts are on the case trying to bring people to justice... the dialogue and acting is soooo fucking bad and cliche'd that i ended up laughing through it all. of course there was a second gunman, of course there was a shootout in the guggenheim museum which no cops seemed to notice, of course clive was the only one who noticed anything significant, of course! naomi watts character was pointless, many of the plot points in the film weren't necessary, and not even red-herrings either! god this was shameful. i really like clive owen as an action star and actor in general, but for fucks sakes man. his next romp with julia roberts looks like a real fucking treat too.
