Rated R · 118 minutes · 2009

Drama, Suspense/Thriller
Nothing very distinguished about this Tom Tykwer-directed Euro-American thriller except its action centerpiece, a magnificent gunfight trashing of New York’s Guggenheim Museum. Bone-weary Clive Owen stars as an Interpol agent investigating a sinister banking combine involved in arms deals, assassinations, etc. His mission allows him to beat up suited goons in Berlin, Milan, and Istanbul as well as Manhattan (the bullet-pocked Guggenheim was replicated on a soundstage at Babelsburg Studios in Germany), while NYC assistant DA Naomi Watts hangs on for dear life. Owen, of the two-day beard, makes a smashing post-Bondian hero, but Eric Singer’s banking-conspiracy screenplay probably belongs in a book, not on screen — it looks like the umpteenth replay of Goldfinger. As impersonal a Tykwer film as we’re likely to ever see (118 min.).
