The American

George Clooney is magnetic as an assassin suffering an existential crisis during his last job in a small Italian village in Anton Corbijn’s po-faced drama. Those expecting a Bourne-like thrill-ride will be disappointed but Clooney and sexy co-star Violante Placido keep things steamy enough to make this worth checking out. 


Good for: The George Clooney fan club.
