While admirable as an example of directorial innovation and homage, The Good German fails to connect on a basic emotional level.

The Good German is the bad movie. Except for the ambience -- the look of the film -- it stumbles awkwardly on every level.

There's a line between homage and mimicry, and Soderbergh has crossed it.

We get no heroes, not even flawed ones. Clooney, our marquee man, chases through numbing plot contortions only because of his lust for Lena. By the time The Good German ended, I had barely a clue if the good ones had lived or died.

A beautifully flawed experiment, "The Good German" is an entertaining if unbalanced war drama that places modern cinema mores on a classic style of American film when the Hayes code would never have allowed such overt sexual reality.

Why emphasise flaws in a film of such overall ambition and expertise?

No matter that it's based on a book, the movie is more about how the reality of the time was seen through the lens of a Michael Curtiz while he was filming "Casablanca".

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.

The final verdict on this movie is that for all its attempts to replicate the great movies of the 1940s, it fails miserably.

This cast almost makes The Good German watchable. It's just that their screenwriter and director don't do them any favors.

I have to admire an ostensibly nostalgic entertainment that so concertedly undermines the romanticism of wartime Hollywood.
