The priest had more lines than George did. Movie was extremely slow and boring. I can't believe Clooney did this movie. What was he thinking. We all could tell he was conflicted and lonely immediately. And what's with the sex??? How integral was it to the movie? NOT!

George Clooney is a good actor but this film is boring. He's a hit man being chased by Sweds who want to kill him. Why? Who knows...He has little dialog thoughout the movie. Several opinions from other's in the theater was the same as mine: BORING! Sorry George!

Not a bad movie. Often slow at times, I though George cloony gave a shadow performance. In the past, he played likable characters, in "The American," he played a totally different character. He played a assassin who wanted out of the business. His character reminded me of "Up in the Air." In that movie, he fires people. In the "American" he fires at people. Cloony gave a good performance, not a great one. I like to mewntion the performance of Thekla Reuten as a female assassin. I hope to see her again in a another movie.

This movie was awful!! Ewtremely boring. Its hardly worth writing this review cause for some strange reason "expert" movie critics seemed to really like it!! Giving it 5 stars! Whatever! I can only see George as an "old man" now thanks to that awful sex scene looking like a chemo patient!!
