Watched about 35-40 minutes of it and it was going nowhere, so switched off. Story was ok, but nothing to get you interested in the characters and even care about them. Filmed in B&W probably for "authenticity" it was more distracting than anything else. We live in a colour world, why would we want to watch.. hell - PAY for something in black and white!? Probably over scoring it at 3/10

The idea to film this movie in the style of the 1940s greatly attributes to the atmosphere. Would I have not watched it on a BluRay in HD it might have been even better. But it is probably also what made this movie a bust at box office. Which is a shame because the story is solid, it fits well around the things going on right after the war which makes it more accessible and more believable. Acting is great, too. I always had kind of a love/hate relationship with Soderbergh movies - this is on the better side.

Clooney plays great. But having a native German speaker ("The Good German") play opposite someone who cannot speak German, and let them have a talk in German totally ripped me out of the movie and destroyed the entire experience.
