Wasted Money

Movie Review: The International (2009)

"Can I get a refund?" "Wow..." "What the hell did I just watch?" These were all thoughts that came to my mind after watching Clive Owen and Naomi Watts tonight. I don't normally waste my time with film reviews online.

However, I feel that I should warn you all. I feel like Hollywood robbed me tonight. This movie just sucks. BAD. Avoid it all costs. The acting is bad. The lines are horrible. The plot is... worse, non-existent even.

This movie was so bad, that the idiot alpha-male sitting behind my friend and I shouted "You've gotta be shitting me!" at the movie's end. You know that when the stupid guy is angry that a shoot'em up sucked... it REALLY SUCKED! Amazing.

Naomi Watts just couldn't act in this movie. Horrible lines, or horrible delivery... I'm not sure. I do know that when you multiply anything by zero the end result is the same though. The worst part of the movie is when Clive and Naomi investigate an assassination crime seen, and haphazardly find a bullet's trajectory. BARF.

Look, I'm not the type that normally goes out and creates a smear campaign, just to run my mouth. Since one of the major focuses of this blog is film... I feel it is my duty to warn the public about The International. Critics aren't always right, and I don't expect you to take my word for it. I DO expect that you do a little homework on this movie though. I'd say that you should avoid it like the plague... but this movie and the plague came a knockin' on my door and I had to choose... it'd be the plague every time. Excuse me now... I need to go spit.
