A contemplative, slow-burn actioner unfairly marketed as a shoot-em-up

  • Excerpt: The marketing for this film was horrendous. The trailer makes it look just another generic action movie George Clooney as the newest action hero. Nothing about that description is true. Clooney plays a hitman who, feeling the pressure around him, decides he wants out of the business. His handler relocates him to a small town where he must complete one last job before he'll be scot free.

  • Excerpt: Het motto van deze film is: Don't talk too much, that's going to get you killed. Deze film is meeslepend tot het eind en of dat nou goed of slecht is mag je zelf bepalen. De consistente mannelijke hoofdlijn wordt doorbroken door de vrouwelijke tegenelementen: Losjes, mooi & gevoelig. Geïnteresseerd in helikopters, kogels en 2 maten de grote kisten die iemands maaginhoud doen omdraaien? Kijk deze film niet.

The Mundane American...........

  • Excerpt: I must admit that going in I was expecting a pissed off George Clooney like he was in The Peacemaker as his part of an assassin. Instead I get a flick that plays like a modern day silent movie, but yet the low key moments of now dialog and visual stimulation takes the story to a level most will find slow and boring, myself included. But the investment was well worth the outcome.

Superb, Absolutely Superb!

  • Summary: George Clooney outdid himself in this movie! I really did not know what to expect. I kind of knew what it was about, but decided that I will let it surprise me. This movie is a low key follow the movie and its steps. You keep guessing and keep wondering what will happen next. You wonder who is behind it all. Of course you can guess what will happen, at least if you watched enough movies you can make an intelligent guess.

  • Excerpt: Meeslepend, af en toe wat langdradig, maar wel heel mooi gefilmd op een bijzondere gave locatie. De moeite waard om te kijken!

Great surprise of a movie

  • Excerpt: If you're looking for a great character study that stays within genre then this is the film for you. If you're a fan of a film like THE CONVERSATION, then you might have a good idea what type of film this is. I would ignore the low ratings reviews unless you think something like the TRANSFORMER films are a cinematic high mark and have ADD. Otherwise, check out this well written and directed thriller with a beautiful transfer on Blu-Ray.

  • Excerpt: Matige film. Het verhaal is moeilijk op te pakken. Het geheel springt van de hak op de tak. Aan het einde wordt het pas duidelijk waar het geheel over ging. Het is een film die eigenlijk alleen om George draait. De film zelf is een mooi decor opgenomen zowel in het noorden als in zuiden. Knap geregisseerd.

  • Excerpt: Erg sterke film voor de liefhebber. All American George Clooney in een Zuid-Europees decor. Goed verhaal en knap geregisseerd door Anton Corbijn. Laat je meeslepen door de einzelganger-rol van Clooney.

  • Excerpt: Echt een film om rustig in je eentje te kijken. Gordijnen dicht en geluid flink hard. Laat je helemaal meevoeren met de eenzaamheid van Clooney, mooie plaatje van Italiaans platte land. Is film met een behoorlijk open einde!
