The website for the new movie The International has all of the basics, plus a game, and some cool browsing effects. Each click into each different section displays some nice imagery and cool audio effects, not the best, but fun (+1 star)!
(The progress bar was my favorite!)
Even though the nice looks of the website is appealing there is not much substance behind the site:
about the film- standard format (same for cast and crew and synopsis)
Video- 1 trailer – standard format.
Gallery- again, standard format.
Downloads- 4 and 4 on this one! 4 The International wallpapers, and 4 The International icons.
Game- “The Threat”, probably the only reason to visit this site is if you need to burn some time at work or at school. This game is similar to minesweeper except easier and possibly more addictive. The only problem is that when you do win the game, thats it(!), no glory , no nothing, game over. Go home. I felt unappreciated for defeating the threat and wasting my time, ok, burning my time.
Overall – skip this website. And a tip! When movie websites have the “register for updates” link, don’t bother, you’ll have better luck registering for something else, maybe us!
