I’m guessing the makers of “The American” think that George Clooney will be enough to get people to see the action-thriller, because they’re being pretty tight-lipped on what the movie is actually about.
Here’s what my extensive research has uncovered: George Clooney is an American assassin-for-hire who wants out of the biz, but must go to Italy for “one last job” before he’s free. You’re welcome.
In this trio of scenes we learn three things about Clooney’s character:
1. He’s a pretty decent marksman, even while riding a scooter.
2. He can sense a sniper like a cat hearing a can opener.
3. He is not supposed to make friends.
But I think the real question on everyone’s mind is, “When does he learn how to Eat (Pray, Love)?!”
