I can't remember much about this movie. I think it was boring.
Not really. Not as bad as some of the one star reviews, although the criticism is valid, but not as good as the 4 and 5 star reviews. Don't have high expectations, go along for the far fetched ride and just enjoy the location backdrop.
Fanatics movie loved every second
Worst film ever. Jolie looks like a thunderbirds puppet, who did her makeup?
I wasn't sure about this one but I enjoyed it very much. I have never been a fan of Jolie but she was ok in this one but Johnny Depp played the part of the tourist to perfection. It was action packed but comic in places because of the wonderful acting of Depp, and it had a lovely little twisty surprise at the end. Altogether very good viewing
Great movie, fun, good pace.
Yes yes yes! This is a great film! Action/ comedy/ romance - Goodness, it could fit every genre, but it does so with a James-Bond style smoothness. Gorgeous on-location filming, interesting storyline, wonderful acting, captivating on-screen presence/ interaction between Jolie and Depp. I was wrapped in this story from beginning to end.... The journey the story takes you on is unexpected, but very well done. Loved it! 4 stars!
Was an ok movie but definitely not a Thriller as stated
The ending was a surprise for me!! I enjoyed the ending but generally the bulk of the movie was hard to like. Jolie was unlikeable. A good plot but poorly executed.
Strange movie choice for Johnny Depp. Usually love his movies, but not this one. Story line was bad bad bad.
What a good movie. Definitely not a thriller. Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie were very funny. Definitely worth a look.
Lovely entertaining movie with Johnny and Angelina. Set in Venice.
The shots of Venice are nice... That's about it. Angelina looks terrible. Almost unwell.
terrible. depp looked overweight and drugged, while jolie acted like a thunderbird puppet, there are about 20 continuity mistakes and some lines were so forgettable I had to replay them straight after. these actors should both feel DEEP shame about collecting a pay check a wasting our time.
Terrible movie. I was really disappointed,it was very slow and not very witty
This movie was quite a surprise, although I admit I wasn't expecting too much. I thought it was great because it had a completely different metre to most modern movies. There were a few too many lingering camera moments on Angelina, but she does look fabulous - great costumes, make-up etc. Johnny looks suitably dishevelled and underplays his character. The scenery was spectacular. Story was reasonably good although a few cliches. But it had the best final line ...... you'll have to watch it to find out what it is.
good cast and kept you guessing from the beginning,but we eventually were proven to be correct
Not too bad, it really is just a light hearted comedy.
I had fun watching this, don't believe the reviews, it's a decent movie.
Had heard lots of bad reports about this movie so didn't expect much from it. Found I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Very slow, not very witty
beautiful looking people and scenery, a bit boring though, had trouble staying awake
Great viewing. kept me intriqued to the end, love the gowns, sets and the actors brilliant. Worth viewing, better than bond movies
loved the storyline, kept me in suspenece till end
Not a great movie but, entertaining enough. Angelina looked sssssmoking for most of the movie, however her acting needs work!!
Predictable and silly. Even the beautiful people couldn't save it.
Angilina made this movie so she could play it back later and watch herself pout and pose. Terrible.
Very James Bond like, totally enjoyed it!
had heard varying reviews about this movie....however found it very enjoyable and thought Jolie/Depp did a good job....was actually nice for a change not to have to endure constant swearing and graphic violence.....it was refreshing....just goes to show a good plot/acting doesn't have to be full of the 'f' word
good entertainment. The last part has a satisfying twist that makes you feel 'good'. On the other handJohnny Depp was so convincing as the bumbling naive tourist that at the end it was hard to believe that he was in control all the time!
OMG.... what were Jonnny Depp and Angelina Jolie thinking when they did this movie? Weak story line - Bit sad they have to make this one - slow - some great scenery of Venice - but would definately not watch it again. I gave 1 star only because they are such beautiful people!
Slow at first and somewhat stuttered in getting to the point.
Didnt quite deserve 5 stars but Im feeling generous, an enjoyable film and how nice to see an 'old school' film without gratuitous sex or violence. Yes Hollywood, it can be done! This film lacks that 'spark' that defines great films but spectacular cinematography, a good cast, decent plot and a couple of terrific scenes make this a very enjoyable film.
Not enough spy adventure and action scenes
Enjoyed the film - it was a lot of fun - but I have yet to receive proof that Angelina Jolie can act.
I really liked the plot on this - amazing how it leads you to think something else.
A very enjoyable, light hearted movie.
very good when you first see the film you would think that Johnny was actually part of her team, but no just a tourist who stumbles into the wrong girl and becomes part of the plot, does he know her or working for her, or was he there by accident, Very good movie.
Not the best... boring and totally predictable ending!
A little slow at times but overall a very enjoyable movie experience. Jolie and Depp are a joy to watch, the script keeps you guessing and the scenery is beautiful.
Normally I love all Johny Depp movies but this one was a real letdown, ended up switching off half way through to avoid falling asleep!
Its a shocker how they could pear two fabulous actors like this together & stuff up is a wonder to me - beautiful locations with the worst acting from Johnny ever no chemistry between him & Angelina just really stiff & boring
Rather dull at most times. The 'classical' approach to what is meant to be an action flick was more a miss than a hit. Only redeeming feature was twist at the end and good acting.
Pretty good...not memorable, but enjoyable enough to keep you interested. Johhny's good looks were ruined with the hair and beard. An ending I didn't see coming (perhaps I should have?).
Shocking, not worth watching
A little predictable. But quite different to other films both Jolie and Depp have starred.
There were some funny parts and interesting scenese.
I'd like to see Jolie in a rough, tough film next!
Overall, the movie was good, but not something I would of paid to see in the cinema.
I really enjoyed this movie as the scenery was fantastic and it kept you on your toes!
Really enjoyed this movie, what movie with Johnny Depp isn't good. Would recommend it to anyone
This is a poor" B" grade movie, what a waste of talent regarding Deep,Jolie and Bettany. Acting was very ordinary because they had nothing to work with. Slow to start, holes everywhere in the script, predictable ending.Only good thing was seeing Venice again. NOT RECOMMENDED
The movie was ok. Found it a little slow and long. Thought there would be a twist.
I actually really enjoyed this movie. I never would have guessed the ending.
I really enjoyed this clever , fast paced , unpredictable movie.
You will too .
Fabulous actors , great plot , give it a try you wont be disapointed.
The European, old-world and old-school charm were the best thing about this film. It was watchable, yet predictable, and although the director tried to capture the 'who-is-it' movie from long ago, did not quite get there. Perhaps the editing was not up to snuff, or the chemistry between the actors...
Jolie looked botoxed! Nothing much about this was believable. NO spark between lead actors. Location and Johnny were great.
I really liked The Tourist. Johnny Depp plays his character so well as always, and the special twist at the end makes me want to see the movie all over again with the ending in mind. Definately a 3 star for me.
Entertaining movie and top class show from AJ and JD. Have always wanted them to do a movie together, not disappointing.
A few laughs, a bit of action and a couple of interesting twists, and beautiful Venice, made this well worth while. Jolie's clothes were a bit weird though - supposed to be the height of sophistication etc but looked sort of 1950s to me.
Good movie. Better storyline than Salt, with a nice twist at the end.
a good travelogue! Entertaining and highly imaginative. There was trouble and plenty of twists for the poor tourist.
A slow start but loved the twist
Not bad, Venice is beautiful in it. Jolie seemed to be quite expressionless and dull.
This movie has a OK plot, the acting was acceptable, however the real stars are the wardrobe and the scenery in Venice.
An interesting and thrilling movie to watch. Makes you guess what happens in the end! The performance of the lead actors were good. Must-watch for people who like suspense and thrillers!
Fairly good film but could see the 'twist' coming. No real chemistry between Jolie and Depp either, which was a pity.
Entertaining film - provided the cables suspending your willing disbelief are strong. Attractive locations are under utilised in favour of gratuitous close ups of the star couple. Good supporting cast keep the interest going through some slow sequences.
Good story line - but not your action packed type movie if thats what your looking for.
Very entertaining and deserves a 3.5 star rating
This is a great movie I enjoyed it more than Black Swan
did not really enjoy the movie
Even for light entertainment it lacks for everything except locations. Predictable, and memorable only for it's forgetableness. Angelina Jolie doesn't even bother to do any acting. She does one pout throughout and not much else. Johnny Depp gets the chance to show how welll he has honed his british accent.
Unthrilling, unexciting and unromantic; the opposite of what it would have liked to have been.
Embarrassingly awful - with Jolie as an extremely attractive wooden dolly.
Cobbled together by one or more ??? just out of film and video school.
I know says one let's take Joan Collin's accent for the approximately 400 elocutionised with pain words uttered during the whole film by Jolie.
Then add some visuals from some early Sophia Loren films especially all the iconic high boobs and lotsa wiggles.
We'll have a bunch of laughingly and totally stereotypical gangsters with dialogue to die for.
The whole film only has three actors anyone has ever heard of- all the rest must come cheap so we will spend a bit on some really great music that would have suited an epic movie (about the only thing worth mentioning)
What a good thing it was set in France and Venice - at least the scenery couldn't be messed up
Then add bits of memory from the 39 Steps, lots of dollops from all the James Bond films without any of the surprise or pizzaa (don't forget it even has Timothy Dalton in it.
And would you believe - guess what - at the end they take off in a boat - now I wonder which films THAT ending is from?
Poor Johnny Depp - having to be the unbelievable klutz who Miss Absolutely Gorgeous falls head over heels in love and all that as a result of a static coupla two/three word conversations and oh so many pointed pouts and sultry eyelash sweeping looks.
What's good abut this film - I didn't see at the movies - so I didn't waste my money.
Absolutely loved this movie. Angelina has never looked more beautiful, and Venice looks awesome.
Quite a good movie with a twist I never saw coming!
Nothing but a competition of 'who has the bigger ego' between Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. Their acting was dreadful and this had a bad storyline. SO BORING!
Loved this movie. Lots of action and entertainment.
I found this movie very entertaining, although it certainly works on the glamour of Angelina Jolie. Jonnie Depp is charming as usual. The end has an Interesting twist which some might guess.
Johnny depp is certainly one of the best actors of all time. This movie is a bomb, the characters do not gel. One of the worst films I have seen in awhile.
Light weight, implausible and far fetched, boring
Excellent thriller, keeps you guessing till the end. Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, what a marvellous choice together - both are really good.
not great, angelina mostly posed and did not act, poor ending I think
I didn't think I would like this movie but it was really good. Beautiful setting, good plot and a surprise at the end!
good and the ending was not i thought it would be keep me guessing right to the end.
So slow moving and boring! 2 stars
An gripping well acted plot about a crime investigation set in Europe with great scenes around Venice and a sting in the end. Four stars.
Great movie. Full of surprises and understated in a good way.
Excellent, watch it - puzzling to the end!
I love Johnny Depp, but it seems to me that he excels at costume drama. His role in this pic. was wimpy, but just wait till you see it. I think you will like it. And Angelina was her usual best.
Venice was stunning- happy memories! Good twist and of course, johnny was great as always. Jolie was a bit annoying but on the whole it was watchable but not the best movie I've ever seen!!
Good movie. Johnny Depp.....what more can I say...
Enjoyed the movie, but probably wasn't the best I've seen Depp in... love him !
I worked out the ending quite early but it was great to watch a movie set in Venice, a beautiful city, and the movie bought back many memories for me from our travels there a few years ago.
Loved the movie! Jolie and Depp had good chemistry. Entertaining.
Was disapointed quite boring
Wonderful acting. Loved the movie and would recommend it. Perhaps the storyline could've been more intricate, but the plot was unexpected in places, and the actors lived up to their reputations. Go Johnny Depp!
Movie was enjoyable to watch. worked out the twist half way through. Cinematography of venice was wonderful. Not alot of dialogue in the scheme of things, but it wasnt really needed. Some parts of movie were bland , but all in all was a good movie to watch. Jolie and Pitt were mediocre but may have been due to script. once again still enjoyable to watch
Better than I was told it was going to be. Everyone gave it awful reviews but I thought it was alright (along with everything coming out of Hollywood at the moment).
It has beautiful scenery, gorgeous gowns worn by Angelina and some good laughs and action sequences. An alright night on the couch.
Jolie was bland.Her BOTOX LIPS stood out more than her talent.Johhny Depp,Part wasn't bad but the pirates movies were better to show he's talent
Rubbish. Big Jolie and Depp fan, but this was just a waste of time
This is one of the worst movies I have seen! Very stilted acting, no connection between the characters, strange conversations and no logic in the plot.
Enjoyable movie but not brilliant. Johnny Depp is always good!
The biggest star was the scenery. i loved the views of Venice.
Loved it - pretty much feels like a crime novel turned into a movie, everyone is dressed to the nines in every scene (except for the pajamas)....it's a bit silly but also a bit of fun. no real brain work required.
Loved Johnny Depp - Ange was soooooooo boring.
Good twist at the end.
Won't recommend this one to anyone.
Loved it, Not and Ange fan but really enjoyed this one!!
Great movie - enjoyed it from start to finish.
Excellent movie, quite a twist at the end, great actors.
yeah it was good but it suddenly stopped at the end then i cleaned the disc after that it was fine
What an awfully boring, predictable movie. No sparks between Depp & Jolie. It was like watching a brother & sister kiss. A couple of funny lines by Depp but otherwise a completely forgettable movie. Not worth taking the time to watch.
A fun chick flick, not too much to think about by way of a plot. Would watch it again
purely bc of Johnny Depp.
Painful, ridiculous dialogue. Gross waste of money! This is NOT entertainment.
Insult to the intelligence.
Really enjoyed it. Johnny Depp fan.
The principal actors, gave as usual a stunning performance, good story line, and a very good twist ending, Will see this one again
Enjoyable film with an interesting plot.
Found this to be very slow movie.
This movie seems to have everything going for it - great actors, great locations, big budget. But the main character /relationship development is severely lacking and the plot is shallow. Angelina does ok in her usual role of "the mysterious spy-woman", but Johnny, who is an excellent actor, just has nothing to work with in the script and comes across as unexciting, awkward and boring. This might be the script writers intention but it makes for a bad movie. The ending is predictable because it is so cliche.
johnny depp best actor.
Very slow moving. Two great actors but perhaps not their best movie.
boring, predictable garbage. Don't bother
Johnny Depp is wasted in this 007 type film. Angelina Jolie holds your attention all the time.She has such a presence in this film.
Predictable story line, stiff acting with little on screen connection. Dodgy special effects/staging. Glamorous and breath taking fabulous views of the real Venice at times. Watchable. 21/2 stars
This was a great movie. Kept you guessing
A very poor remake of the terrific French film Anthony Zimmer. How can they have got it so wrong?
Hmmm, someone was trying to make a movie to become a comedy, thriller, and love story and failed in all three
Comedy by the (French) police, add a litle bit of a boat chace as a thriller, and a dash of (comic) love story.... stereotyped by the back for bad and white for good....
Some parts were believalbe, most wasn't .
Still I wanted to see what happen next....
I am sure that Jodie and Depp could have done with a better script
In short it had all the hallmarks of a B-movie made in Europe (French perhaps? )
Really clever. Really. Gotta love Angelina too.
A fun, glamorous fling of a film. Venice is the real star here, the story is escapist and has a few unexpected turns and has a touch of the 007 movies. Johnny and Angelina are always easy on the eye and I've seen them do better but all in all a nice bit of fluff.
I don't recommend this movie as Angelina should have act better than that
OK movie and real twist at the end.
Slow, weak dialog, lack of character, This has confirmed that despite the pouted lips the acting skill depth simply isn't there. Johnny Depp did the best he could.Badly directed. Nice travelogue of Italy though.
Excellent movie, intriguing and fabulous locations!
not for me but nothing really wrong with the movie
Save yourself a couple of hours and don't bother with this.
Totally unoriginal, contrived Hollywood garbage. Bit of a shame really as the movies budget could have gone toward feeding starving children.
Not since she appeared in "Girl Interrupted" has Angelina Jolie appeared in a decent movie again. It seems that movie makers are obsessed with putting her immense beauty on display to the detriment of a good story. If i see another scene with Jolie, pouting and elegantly defeating bad guys - i'm going to die of boredom. Highly under-whelming.
Revolves around Frank, an American tourist visiting Italy to mend a broken heart. Elise is an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path. The worst movie since Plan 9 from Outer Space. Absolute rubbish
Oh ho-hum. Someone wake me up when it's all over..... A total waste of time and talent. btw...WHO wrote the script ?? Shoot the b.....d before he does it again !!
OMG. Where do I start. This was absolute rubbish. The trailer looked so promising.
Glamourous, intriguing and I really shouldn' write anymore as I hate it when someone spoils the movie. Watch 'The Tourist' you wont be dissappointed.
Angelina was stunning. good story, Couple of great unexpected twists. Loved it
Hyped up garbage... turned it off
predictable and slow did'nt really like this much over rated
Not as good as I thought it would be, but still worth watching, good ending!
loved it . Good story line with a bit of a twist. Refreshing to see a movie that wasnt full of sex and violence that the whole family could enjoy.
not bad, but no chemistry between them
Really good movie, enjoyed very much
Very corny but entertaining...a no brainer!
A bit ho hum. Very predictable plot yet also somewhat disjointed, which is quite a feat. I got the feeling that it was badly directed, but maybe just too much footage simply ended up on the cutting room floor which can negate the best direction. If it had better direction and/or editing I'd have given another star. Still, its well worth watching. Picturesque, and I'm not just referring to the unnecessarily pretty Jolie!
Mostly i enjoyed this because i have been to venice and it is a fantastic backdrop to this story. I think if it had been set elsewhere i would not have enjoyed it so much as the story was a little predictable!
Different but still a good movie
Three and half stars. Kept you guessing. Enjoyed the backdrop of Venice. Well written story and good entertainment. We both like Johnny Depp and Angelina Jollie. Well suited to the roles.
Awesome movie. I loved it all the way through and especially the ending. Defiantly a must see.
Plot was pretty simple but the views of Venice and Paris was pretty spectacular!
usually enjoy angelina jolies movies but this one wasnt too impressive, not a good storyline
A typical Angelina Jolie movie, so corny it's funny. Worth watching.
After hearing negative reviews, I found that I actually quite enjoyed this movie. A real pleasure to watch with two beautiful actors. A feast for the eyes.
I've seen it twice now, and don't get tired of it. It's fantastic to drift off with the film. Excellent movie.
wouldn't watch this movie again not as good as it could've been
What an awesome little thriller. Intriguing to the end. I love Johnny Depp.
Considering the promotion given to this movie, I thought it would be much better. Disappointing
So saw it coming from the opening sequence, but enjoyed it anyway.
this disc came to me in the sealed envelope I was supposed to use to return to you so I didn't open it I just put it back in the mail to you. I do not know how this happened but I do not want this counted as one of my 8 dvd's I get a mth plse.
Despicable Me was sent off today to you
great movie, nice twists and turns,
Why Johnnie, why? You are too clever and talented to waste yourself on this sort of trash. The only reason I figure you bothered with this one was because of the nice working holiday you got in Venice.
Really really disappointing movie. Angelina was wooden and Johnny (who is normally awesome) really struggled with this lame, boring script. Don't bother seeing it , although the scenery was pretty.
If you don't think about it too much or ask too many questions of the storyline - it's not such a bad movie!!! Enjoyed it but not one to rave about which is a shame with two big name actors. Should have been better. 2.5
very disappointed with this movie l love jonny deep and Angie but together it just didnt work was a very slow movie
soooo boring..had the whole thing figured out by the first half!
Angelina looks too skinny, so no pleasant cast to look at either!
Much better than a lot of critics claimed. It's a good looking film, and you're thinking the whole way through. It's not Best Picture stuff, but it's still a really good couple of hours!
The directing was awful. It was so slowly paced and the actors were given nothing to work with to show their talents. We couldn't stop commenting throughout the movie how boring it was and wondering why these stars were in it when any b-grade actor would have had the same impact.
Thoroughly entertaining movie. Plenty of eye-candy for all. Not a movie that requires deep thinking; just sit back, relax and enjoy.
All rather mysterious until the plot slowly comes together. Whether it actually made any sense in the end is debatable, but it hardly matters as it's all good fun along the way and a delight to watch.
bad movie. bad director.
Deep and Jolie didn't show their best.
This movie is a remake of the original title Anthony Zimmer. I have watched the original version a few years ago and I remember it to this day because it was excellent. Unfortunately this film has nothing to do with that. There is that one scene where deep is drunk and it was just Captain Jack Sparrow with on make up on
Brilliant. Great to be surprised again
Disappointing. Bad directing, it lurched all over the place. Patchy script. No connection between Jolie and Depp, such a waste of their talents.
not a typical role for johnie but i did enjoy the entire movie and i give it a 7.5 outta 10
It was ok. It requires a great deal of suspension of disbelief to work, but the actors and cinematography are very easy on the eyes.
Not a fantastic action packed movie - a bit slow, but enjoyable. Good twist at the end, better than a 3 star not quite a 4, gave an extra star for what a great actor Jonny Depp is - worth a watch !!
I really liked this movie, it was nice to 'see' Johnny Depp in a more normal role without all the make up
This has to be the single most disappointing film I have ever seen. What were you thinking Johnny Depp? I didn't even watch it the whole way through, it was that uninspiring.
This is a film which relies almost entirely on the beauty of Jolie and the scenery. As a film it is an abysmal failure. Depp's talent is nowhere to be seen - his character is pathetic and poorly played. Jolie just prances around in vertiginous heels letting her unquestionable beauty do the talking rather than her questionable acting 'talent'. Paul Bettany as the English cop puts in an excellent performance and if it wasn't for the visual spectacle of the locations he would be the most memorable thing in the movie. The film, though supposed to be fast-paced, is a slow and gruelling experience and the 'big reveal' at the end is poorly executed and kind of expected. Utterly forgettable: the star is for Venice.
Ok well for me I like to look at Johnny Depp who seems to age well.
Good to see Angelina Jolie dolled up rather than her cool masculine roles.
Together I thought they were perfect both good actors not my favourites though. But the story not even they could save. I worked it out from the beginning and said yeah what else at the end. Worth watching still but you won't get excited over it.
For once in a movie i found, a little bit more action would have picked up the movie. Disipointed with ending as i found it way to predictable, but good landscape picked up the movie, just a bit of fun.
I saw this at the movies yesterday. It was ok, nothing spectacular. I'm a really big fan of Angelina, but found this was average compared to other action movies Angelina has done, like Mr
I tend to not enjoy movies that are tailored to the actors or when it relies on the star power too much. That seemed to be the case here as I would've given it a 2 star if Johnny Depp wasn't in it. It wasn't anything special but it had a decent twist to the ending which made up for some of the drag-ass plot. I gave it 3 stars because it was a beautiful landscape with some good humor every now and again.
I enoyed this but found it quite clumsy. It was more Pink Panther style than anything else. Don't expect anything too meaningful.
