The Interpreter (2005)
UK / Aboriginal
"The truth needs no translation.
"Political intrigue and deception unfold inside the United Nations, where a US Secret Service agent (Penn) is assigned to investigate an interpreter (Kidman) who overhears an assassination plot.
A Very Safe Movie
The Interpreter is an extremely packaged political thriller that
contains only a little punch. The main reason I gave it a go was Sean
Penn who seems to rarely make mistakes selecting his work. Nicole
Kidman can be a mixed bag, and Sydney Pollack a competent seasoned
veteran director. All three performed well without setting the screen
The use of the United Nations building was a big plus and definitely
gave the movie more realism. It also gave the viewer more of an idea on
what a massive organisation the UN is.
Even though "The Interpreter" was enjoyable the ending was definitely a
disappointment. It wasn't that it was necessarily wrong, just that you
knew what was coming. This was the "Hollywood Factor" showing through.
Perhaps the reason it didn't turn into real Hollywood trash was the
fact it was filmed and produced in New York.
