theamericanmpSep 4, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Veteran Hollywood actor George Clooney is back on the silver screen after a small hiatus and his latest flick ‘The American’ has hit the theaters. The actor looks every bit glamorous as he always does in the film and he has proved once again that he still has the charisma intact at 49! The film is a thriller and the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ actor essays the role of an assassin on the run in the film. The backdrop of the film is pt for a racy thriller and the actor looks perfect for the role. George Clooney plays Jack, an assassin who appears to be an unfathomable character at the beginning of the film. However, the character played by him reveals its true colors as the film progresses and it is quite a revelation.

The assassin is given a task by his boss named Pavel and he is set to make a weapon to deliver to a client whose identity is wrapped in mystery. It is evident that Jack is well versed in using and assembling weapons. Though his boss asks him to avoid missing with the locals where he is leading a reclusive life, he gets drawn to a lady named Clara played by Violante Placido. He also develops a friendship with Father Benedetto, a local priest. The viewers gradually feel that Jack is desperate to get rid of his past.

The movie adapted from the book ‘A Very Private Gentleman’ by Martin Booth focuses more on the psychological change in the protagonist than hardcore actions. The cinematography is top notch ad the pace of the film is rather slow compared to the spy flicks one is used to see. It has got mixed response from the movie critics.
