The International is strewn with wild improbability, but that hardly deters from its appeal.

As frustrating as the story's shallowness is, this shortcoming is very nearly negated by the sheer physical pleasure of the production.

Eventually, you just let the tangled double-crossing take care of itself and enjoy the way the film defiantly bucks the contemporary thriller trend for shaky-cam coverage and lightning cuts.

Whatever happened to the old fashioned spy sagas which had breakneck chases, busty women and non-stop action? Now it's all brooding fellows with sad back-stories.

The International grabs you from the get-go with one of the most dramatic openings in a while.

The International continues in this tradition of telling us what we already know to our sorrow. Somebody tell us something we don't know!

The premise might be timely, but the execution is same old, same old.

A sure-footed and thrilling sidestep into cinema's mainstream.

Take away the Guggenheim shootout and we've at least got Clive Owen at half throttle. Take away Owen and there's nothing left but the tired old mystic cabal of sadistic sorcerers.

...an exceptional thriller that's consistently elevated by the uniformly superb performances and Tom Tykwer's subdued yet stylish directorial choices.
December 17, 2009
A thankfully, skillfully mature effort by Tykwer to produce a proper thriller for adults, one even lent a little extra resonance by our currently cash-strapped times.

Think of it as the cinematic equivalent of a chunky paperback thriller that gets you through a week-long holiday.
