The American 2010

Alone among assassins, Jack is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry that his next assignment will be his last. Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues romance with local woman Clara. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

Flick stars George Clooney as a hit-man hiding out in Italy and that's about as interesting as it gets. There are lots of scenes...

The American Movie Review by Jarrod (9/5/2010)

‘The American' is definitely not the type of film you may think it is; the plot deals with a mysterious hitman, ambiguously called ‘The American'.
