    Default The American

    Luckily I read the reviews beforehand, so I wasn't expecting this to be George Clooney playing Jason Bourne. Instead its a darker, more patient examination of the life of a trained assassin enjoying a brief respite in an Italian town. Its beautifully shot and the characters nicely developed e.g. the kindly Italian priest and the pr0stitute who falls in love with him. I can't imagine this film doing well in the States because its simply too slow and lacking in action, but for those of us who enjoy the more visual elements of cinema it will delight.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this low key action thriller. Clooney is superb as he usually is, the script impeccable and as GTI points out, the visuals are a joy.

    When they say less is more, this is what they mean.

    8/10
