The American


Movie reviews by McBrolloks

Rating: 7 out of 10

George Clooney is an assassin. The story plays out in a small town in Italy.

The movie is actually very good. Then in the end, the plot falls apart once again. I call this the “Hollywood Factor” (HF).

I don’t want to ruin the ending for anyone who reads this, but you will see what I am talking about in the end.

Just one more thing, it seems for most part of the movie, as if the whole town is almost completely deserted. I never knew you wouldn’t find any Italians in Italy.

Very good cinematography. And one thing I totally loved, was that there wasn’t all the usual background music to set the mood and tell us how to feel as a scene plays out. There is a lot of room to make up your own mind and emotions.

The story is also very good. Right until the end. Isn’t it so funny, when you see these pro’s at their trade, right until the end of every movie. The the HF steps in and ruins a perfectly good plot.

George Clooney is very good in this film.

I would recommend this movie to friends. All in all, still very good. But for fucks sake, when are they going to wake up in Hollywood and start making better movies? All they had to do was to tweak it a little bit, and it would have passed with a 9 out of 10. I had to penalize them 2 points for the ending.
