The American

George Clooney Goes Back to His Beloved Italy (trailer)

by Jonathan Simrin

4 May 2010

The new film from director Anton Corbijn stars Clooney as an assassin who just needs to do that one last job before getting out of the hit man business.
 

It’s always nice to see Clooney a little more toned-down in his roles and not simply playing another charming variation of George Clooney. In The American, Clooney stars as Jack, a hit man who wants out of the game, after a job goes terribly wrong. Will he find vindication in picturesque small town Italy? The trailer, with its great long camera shots and dramatic score, has a decidedly slow pace, but still shows promise.
