The Tourist - movie review


Well, you know how it is...get to high end actors in a movie..and what can you expect. Especially, if a love interest is involved.



Honestly, I'm never been a big fan of Angelina Jolie. And of course, she has some great fashion in the movie, but she's like watching a barbie doll. I did notice she wore gloves in almost every scene.


Storyline : Elise (Angelina Jolie) sits next to an American tourist, Frank (Johnny Depp), on a train going to Venice. She has chosen him as a decoy, making believe that he is her lover who is wanted for police. Not only will they need to evade the police, but also the mobster whose money her lover stole.


Johnny Depp falls flat on the screen as well in this film. He looked sort of puffy too. I dunno, I yawned a couple of times. Sure you got mobsters and a fast boat scenes, gun shots and the like, but it goes in circles after while with all the twist and turns. I will say...a great movie if you are in the cold and snow and want a min-vacation of warmth and European scenery. But the story and the acting..it didn't do much for me.

i kind of wanted to see this! i saw her movie 'Salt' on the plane and wasn't that impressed. Maybe she is just not that great? hmm :)

I actually thought this movie was going to be good... I mean, Johnny Depp is amazing! But yeah, all the reviews are definitely not positive, which is disappointing. :P

Great review! I don't think I'll be seeing this one. :/

This is so funny because I so saw this last night and 100% agree with this review. I didn't expect much though...but I thought there might be at least some cool action scenes but no...it was just bad. Plus the ending was awful! Not at all what it should've been and to tell you the truth...there were no real surprises there.

I wanted to see this because of Johnny Deep. I wasn't too interested anyway.
Please do a review on County Strong if you see it
Thanks!



LOVE!
