Review: I saw this movie because of Ryan Gosling. I have seen him in other movies and I was impressed by his performances, but in this one he portrays a whole different kind of character. This movie impressed me because it started and ended in a very different way. The plot was very interesting, it captured the viewer in so many levels. I couldn't stop thinking about it even days after. Kirsten Dunst as Katie Marks was very good at her role too. To sum up, I suggest this movie to those of you, who like romantic dramas, but I have to warn you that it is a very emotionally brutal movie. For me it is a 8/10.
About: An assassin hides out in Italy for one last assignment. The American of the title is Jack (Clooney), a hitman who is living a seemingly idyllic life in Sweden which is quickly shattered when men come to kill him (for reasons never explained). Jack makes it out alive and hides out in a small, beautiful Italian village awaiting instructions from his contact on how to proceed. He’s given a job that requires him to build a specialized rifle for an assassination. However, his life remains in danger and Jack’s (justified) paranoia becomes more intense throughout the film.
Review: The main reason I decided to watch this movie was George Clooney. However, I am not glad I did. The movie was very slow, even though it had action scenes and also it seemed very unrealistic. The classic hit-man “superhero”. I found it very boring, I was looking at my watch, the whole time. My review is very small because this movie had actually no plot. In my opinion it is not a worth watching movie even though George Clooney is the lead actor.
