AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Good German

Good intentions are in full force in this modern homage to classic film noir and the films of Michael Curtiz. But the great performances, flawless direction, and themes presented aren;t enough in a film that's brought down by its screenplay. Mildly entertaining (you can only take so much of Clooney being knocked down) that doesn't fully succeed.
