4 out of 10 Excellent
Gerard from Cork, 16 Jul 2009
This is a typical Clive Owen film, scruffy hero type stuff. The difference here is that the story is pretty good and the action is excellent. If you've read Naomi Kleins 'Shock Doctrine' then you should see this film. It showcases the power of the international banks in driving debt onto countries that can ill afford it.

3.5 out of 10 Stylish Designer Movie
Lyn from Cork, 06 Sep 2009
This has all the right ingredients for a good movie but somehow it lacks heart. Alot of movies with Clive Owen in make me feel like that, so maybe that's it. The sets and background cities are wonderful but none of this made me really care about the plot or the characters.

3.5 out of 10 The International.
Alan from Dublin, 24 Nov 2009
A fairly good thriller about an international bank becoming involved in arms dealing. The only thing that spoiled my enjoyment of this was the disk skipping right in the middle of the big action sequence and again towards the end of the movie.

2 out of 10 Bourne Identity it is not..
Linda from Cork, 26 Jul 2009
I was really looking forward to this film but was disappointed. The plot is flimsy and I found the actors just really stiff. Some good action scenes, esp in the Guggenheim Museum but that's all. Huge shame as could have been a great film.

What's it about....
RUN LOLA RUN and PERFUME director Tom Tykwer assembles a fine international cast for this thriller that spans continents. Clive Owen (CHILDREN OF MEN, SHOOT 'EM UP) and Naomi Watts (FUNNY GAMES, EASTERN PROMISES) stars as a besieged pair who encounter many obstacles as they try to expose a bank's criminal activities to the world.
