Boring poltical non thriller
Syriana too slow for its own good. It prods along so slowly that it failed to gain any interest from me. A film does not need to be short or ultra fast paced but this film is very poorly done. It does not use its slow pacing to develop characters or make an interesting storyline, or even a storyline that can be followed easily enough, you basically have to take notes in this film. Not because its too fast but because of the slow reveals and scenes on scenes that fail to hold intention or purpose. I like thrillers, and political thrillers very much but this one fails to be interesting at all.
Oscar Win Best Supporting Actor George Clooney 1/5- Clooney takes the method of acting where you just make a tired face throughout the whole film and do nothing to change it in anyways. There are many characters in this film and none of the actors including Clooney do anything with their characters to make them feel more than a plot mover. Clooney just does not do anything special in this film, he just looks tired.
