Check out the film Sahara. While I don't have anything against American films, I felt this film was "overly" American, from the rock n' roll soundtrack, to the pacing, to the finale with the ocean and chick rolling around on a beach in her bikini, it's everything that makes American cinema American. Don't get me wrong, it's very entertaining, and well worth a watch. It's just a totally American film, that's all.
Maybe it's because I just saw the movie Kung Fu Hustle and really dug it.
