Review: The Quiet American

A name like Michael Caine should be able to carry a movie. Well, he does. In spite of this somewhat mellow novel adaptation, and a trailer that showed all the action there was, it was still acceptable as a movie. Clearly broken apart in pieces with a different focus and feeling, it does feel a bit disjointed, not helping to pull you emotionally into this movie. The get-to-know-the-characters part, the subdued love story, the action sequences, the thriller twist, all feel like seperate parts, and there’s no effort made to mix it, or deepen it.6½.
