The reason I refuse to see this film is not because I hate the US or am extremly pro-Canadian. So let me get that out of the way. I also don't hate George Clooney. In fact, I relatively like the guy. He's a smart, charming actor and for the most part I appreciate his acting style.

The reason I don't want to see this film is because the trailer for The American tells me exactly what this movie will be like. Not the whole story, per say, in fact I didn’t know what the hell was going on in the trailer – and not in a good way as with a mysterious trailer for something like Inception (2010) or next year’s Super 8 (2011). No, here it seemed like a lot of cliché lines from a character that plays by his own rules and is afraid to settle down because he has a crap load of insecurities. It’s your typical Oscar-hungry drama and I guarantee you George Clooney and company are hoping this will be another Up in the Air (2009) or Munich (2005), and I don't think it will be anything close. The trailer all in all just seems like we've seen it before and is sorta... meh.

Than again, maybe I'm be wrong. This could be a good movie, at which point I'll check it out much later. For now, and this month - I'm not interested.

For those of you who are interested in seeing The American, it opens everywhere today. For those of you who are curious about what I’m talking about, here’s the trailer:
