THE GOOD GERMAN (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.6|5.0 Stars ìì

The Good German,
a WWII flick, slows down to a regular, grinding halt throughout its very long 105 black and white minutes. Scenes liberally cycle through boredom, immorality, and ‘where did that come from?’ The film fails on nearly every level despite casting that includes George Clooney (as Jake Geismer), Tobey Maguire (as Tully), Cate Blanchett (as Lena Brandt), and Beau Bridges (as Colonel Muller).

Additional Thanks

Director Steven Soderbergh needed help with this one. Executive Producers Frederic W. Brost and Ben Waisbren made the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. This movie needs a boost in presentation.
