I like Clive Owen, he’s dark, intense, and not too bad to look at for 2 hours. In The International he’s a spy-type guy working on a case involving international banking and illegal weapon sales. It’s a sign of the times when the bad guys in the movie are all bankers. Naomi Watts comes in as his FBI contact, but she’s not a love interest. She’s a smart lady with a family who plays by the book. The movie takes place in various European locations and also New York. There are two big action sequences, one at the Guggenheim which plays out really bloody and loud. Other than that it’s a lot of talking and exposition – a lot of business language. Interesting movie, very dissatisfying ending.
