Brooding, suspenseful romantic drama, not an action movie
"The American" is not an action thriller, so don't except to get one out of it. Instead it is more of an indy style suspenseful, romantic, drama, that just happens to include a couple of professional assassins. There are a few tense scenes, but they are few, and most of the time is spent with Jack, watching him live a life that he has come to despise. This film is not for kids, and most younger viewers would probably be bored anyway. There is some violence, but not excessive, the nudity however is quite explicit. Overall I would say that it is an interesting film, and if you like your movies with depth and more intellectual and emotional aspects, check this one out.
