DVD: The International, Retail & rental, (Sony)
Sunday 05 July 2009
Corporate bankers as villains? At least there's one aspect of The International that feels contemporary; the rest of this conspiracy thriller could have been adapted from a 40-year-old spy novel.
Still, as hokey and dated as it might be, it's also a fast and efficient yarn which starts with the action already well under way, and doesn't pause for breath as Clive Owen's Interpol agent globetrots from Berlin to Milan to Istanbul to a brilliant shoot-out in New York's Guggenheim Museum.
