    I could not believe after watching this awful self indulgent load of rubbish that I had actually guessed the outcome in the first twenty minutes. And the end, my god, Casablanca? Did the writers of this film have any clue that the script was such a lemon? Dreadful Dreadful Dreadful. All the actors however were brilliant, loved them all. Sad the film had such a dud story.

  1. The Good German is a prime example of a movie made by highly skilled and intelligent filmmakers that nevertheless seems misguided from the get-go.
  2. In his genre pastiche The Good German, Steven Soderbergh has tried to resurrect the magic of classical Hollywood, principally by sucking out all the air, energy and pleasure from his own filmmaking.

    With a few self-conscious exceptions, Soderbergh makes an earnest attempt to return to that place and time in both history and American filmmaking, and his risk-taking pays fascinating dividends.
