The American: George Clooney Goes Back to His Beloved Italy (trailer)

[4 May 2010]

By Jonathan Simrin

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.
