Theatrical report

The International is not as much fun as you'd think it would be given who's in it. It's also not very surprising (look at the major premise: banks are evil) for a thriller. Also, there's not a red herring or blind alley in sight and I have to ask just how many international assassins have an orthopaedic support and live in the same city as the person who's trying to catch them? I also have to mention handguns with more bullets than an entire regiment. Yeesh.
