“WHY DIDN’T THEY TELL US THIS AT SCHOOL DADDY?
I GUESS IT’S BECAUSE THEY JUST DIDN’T WANT TO SCARE US”
– SCRIPT OF HORROR MOVIE
It is interesting that the first scene of the movie starts with an Interpol Police agent friend of Clive’s dying from a heart attack. This myocardial infarction is later proven to be caused by a poison dart.
Recently, the 27th October 2010, President Kirchener of Argentina served by his own personal doctor, who stood up to the IMF banking system after 2003 to save Argentina from ruin because of its National debt, sadly died from a heart attack at the age of 60 years.
In The International, Interpol Agent Louis Salinger – Clive Owen – and Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Eleanor Whitman – Naomi Watts – are determined to bring to justice one of the world’s most powerful banks – like the International Bank of Credit and Commerce – run by Elite people who feast on human suffering.
Uncovering illegal activities including money laundering, arms trading, and the destabilization of governments by rent-a-terrorists who later become indebted Presidents of the country, Salinger and Whitman’s investigation takes them from Berlin to Milan to New York and to Istanbul.
Finding themselves in a high-stakes chase across the globe, their relentless tenacity puts their own lives at risk as the bank will stop at nothing – even murder – to continue financing Armaments and Terrorists to put their men in charge of Governments, to Control Governments and thus their people through IMF National Debt and personal debt, Assassination and War.
This movie, shows how society and its Police Forces, District Attorneys, and Politics protects its own so that it is impossible to bring the Elite to justice.
Like Peter Jackson’s, “The Lovely Bones”, it also shows that it is not necessary for one person to bring anyone to justice. Justice is not the province of one man. There are better things to do with one’s life.
Universal Karma – will take care of it all by itself as in this movie the Elite’s families battle it out by themselves, army to army, country to country, and anyone who gets in their way is assassinated.
As Zen Master Hogen says, “Don’t get caught!” by stupid ideas and thoughtforms.
Clive tells a the two sons of an Italian Mafia family that their father, the President of Italy, was assassinated by the bank.
They send their Mafia hit man to assassinate all in the bank involved in his murder.
Thus karma and justice are served!!
The Bank’s President and it’s head Lawyer are assassinated, but the vice President of the bank takes over the bank and the bank continues its corrupt and evil way.
As the president of the bank says to Clive Owen before being shot by the Mafia, “You only want to kill me because of your own Blood Lust. Killing me will serve no useful purpose. There are thousands of bankers just like me who will take over my job in an instant!”
Clive Owen, who refused the assassin role of James Bond, was created to do movies like this as his energy, again, propels the story and the script.
Like Keanu Reaves in Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula, the Matrix and Constantine, he is a spiritual actor.
