Default 'The International' - High-Def Digest Review

David has turned in a crackerjack review for 'The International.' He says this one will take you on quite a ride, even as little voice in the back of your head says, "Turn off you bunk-detector." This Blu-ray is loaded up with crisp video, muscular audio, and some great supplements. Worth a rental.

Extremely! Clive Owen's head always seems too big for his body.

Atrocious cover art. I will buy, big fan of Tom Twyker.

This is a pass for me. Trailer did nothing for me.

Ill rent it since movies coming out that I want to see are few and far between. Gotta put that movie pass to good use.

Saw it in theatres and left somewhat disappointed. It was not the action thriller that it was promised to be, at least not nearly as much as the trailers would lead you to believe. If you had *no* expectations going in it might be much better, or at least easier to tolerate but my friend and I both left disappointed, feeling that we'd been promised an action thriller and instead got something much different.

I love how the cover makes it look like some intense action movie. Except it's not. And it's not even a good thriller. It's just crap. State of Play is by far the superior conspiracy movie of 2009. So far, anyways, I suppose.

Be that as it may, I wouldn't mind looking half as good as Clive Owen...

I must have been in a coma when this movie came out (or perhaps it hasn't come out in Europe yet?), because it sailed right past me. Judging by the comments here, a bargain-bin purchase at most.
