  • Living By The Gun

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clooney, Placido, and cast; story, direction
    Cons: A bit predictable

    Summary: He works in a pursuit at which he excels. He is paid well for his work, but his efforts come at a high personal price. He's discouraged from making friends, and one of the few friendships he has doesn't last. His desire for personal connection, however, ... read more

  • Stripped down American is no Le Samourai but still decent hit-man movie (Lean-N-Mean)

    Jan 31, 2011 by ChrisJarmick is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: photography, acting, some decent spurts of action
    Cons: familiar archetype characters, cliche's

    Summary: The American is a tense character study with minimal dialogue; we wait to see what will happen next;  sometimes something interesting is going on, sometimes not; a bit of a twist; and then one of two possible solutions plays out.  We are ... read more

  • The American (2010): George Clooney's Stunning Euro-thriller

    Sep 11, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A fine drama about a man on the run.
    Cons: For some: lots of nudity and blood-letting.

    Summary: George Clooney has given us an interesting body of work up until now. From his TV days in the series E.R. through some 17-or-so Hollywood movies, he has shown us class, professionalism, and good looks guaranteed to turn many a lady's head. But up until ... read more

    Pros: Lead actor, storyline looked good, action packed, good previews, and strong title
     
    Cons: High expectation from trailer, common storyline, action was "ok"

    Summary: The American was a decent movie. My fiance and I decided to see the movie because it looked better than its competitors. The previews made us believe that the movie would be good, plus, it captured our attention. Interpretation of the plot ... read more

  • "THE AMERICAN": A EUROPEAN THRILLER

    Sep 3, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clooney's acting, great directing and great story and script plus beautiful scenery
    Cons: None

    Summary: I've wanted to see this film since I saw the first trailer.  I'm happy to report that the movie is one of the best films of the year.  Why?  While there certainly is an "American" at the center of the film, the movie is very much a ... read more

  • A rare low-key thriller, and from Hollywood no less

    Sep 1, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Understated, below the surface storytelling
    Cons: Quick wrap-up, a little too familiar with Violante's anatomy

    Summary: *** For a few weeks I have not been able to post paragraphs. This will be my last review here ***Jack (George Clooney) is like anyone else in the rat race; he’s looking for a way out. To his dismay assassins don’t get a 401k, instead they ... read more
