Clive Owen
14 March 2005 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

That was one of the most wonderful film I 've ever seen . It make the spectator remember it long time long. When I talk to my friends about Clive Owen everybody remember him in first movie/for that I am not quite sure/ we saw it here, in Bulgaria. He, and his rule of "The five P" are still in our conscious:). Clive Owen succeeded in amazing way to show the main characteristic of his hero- charming and strong, extremely clever, pushing and gentle, person who never, in no circumstances could lose...We see how under the in first glimpse cynical mask of his heroes man can see sensibility,vulnerability and humanity.He possess worriless charm and mystery.He is enigmatic, strict and masculine Clave Owen is equally convincing as gangster, misanthrope, trickster...and especially for the king. Its not accidentally that all of his heroes are such strong, charming and magnetic persons-is not it?:)
