Rating: 1.0/5 -- The Good German is the bad movie. Except for the ambience -- the look of the film -- it stumbles awkwardly on every level. Full Review

Why emphasise flaws in a film of such overall ambition and expertise? Full Review
Rating: 2.5/4 -- There's a line between homage and mimicry, and Soderbergh has crossed it. Full Review
In the finest tradition of some of our most celebrated films of all time, The Good German, is destined to join their ranks as a classic and timeless tale of lies, love, intrigue, political and moral corruption. Full Review
Behind The Lens
Rating: 1.5/4 -- The Good German is a movie wonk's triumph and no one else's. Soderbergh gets the visuals right but not the clean storytelling line of classic cinema, nor the iconic characters or moral certainty of the oldies. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- A film that feels more like a cinematographer's showreel than an involving drama: flashy, but heartless. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- This cast almost makes The Good German watchable. It's just that their screenwriter and director don't do them any favors.
Description by OLDIES.com:
Jake Geismer (George Clooney), an American military journalist, has returned to Berlin for the Potsdam Peace Conference. Jake's driver, Tully (Tobey Maguire), appears innocent upon first glance, but is in fact a major player in the corrupt Berlin underworld. He's also dating Jake's former flame, Lena Brandt (Cate Blanchett), whose beauty continues to torment Jake. When Tully's cadaver washes ashore one day, Jake is shocked to discover that nobody wants to go public with the news. As much as he'd like to forget about Lena, he can't. Pretty soon, he's risking his life to help her flee the country.
