The American

The American

That looks like a nice bird ...

The plotline's been done to death in the past but this version still manages to hold interest. Our hero is an ageing assassin and rifle maker. He wants to retire, but is given one last job to do, building a sniper rifle for a young female assassin. While doing this he becomes closely involved with a local prostitute. Naturally it's only a matter of time before two key people turn on him and he has to use all his skill and wits to stay alive...


105 minutes, No persons under 16 (Sex, Nudity, Violence)
Crime, Drama.
