Moody mix of international politics and inner conflict makes for a thought-provoking thriller -- just ignore the trailer.

It's not a Great Thriller, but it's a more than welcome diversion, and a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Needs no translation...It warrants U.N. sanctions as one of the most bombastic bombs of the year.

I was steadily absorbed by The Interpreter, even though much of the plot didn't make a great deal of sense.

...Becomes a little convoluted and long, but the majority of the time I was interested, involved, and only occasionally perplexed by Penn's arbitrariness.

With all these talented people, somebody should have noticed that the script needed a rewirte, and that it was emotionally distant.
