This is the best looking piece of **** I've ever seen. The cinematography, the cast, the setting is all beautiful to look at but it's so incredibly boring.

Johnny Depp, my favorite... even in 21-jump street he was great. This man can play anything (I think). The combination Johnny - Angelina worked out good. The story gets to you and even when you get the clue you still want to know you got it right.

The Tourist review

Elise (Angelina Jolie) strikes a conversation with Frank (Johnny Depp) on a train. Alexander Pearce, who owes £744 million in back taxes, writes notes to Elise for directions on what to do next. Unlikeable characters, poor on-screen chemistry by the leads, a very dull pace in storytelling and the conclusion tried to hard to impress the viewers. It was amazing how the clues from a burned letter were deciphered, jumping more than 10ft high barefoot without having any sort of injury, and how a piece from a boat came-off while dragging Frank. Soundtrack most of the time distracted the dialogues, which was irritating at times. The lush wardrobe, gorgeous scenery and somewhat action was albeit fulfilling. Not even the star power of Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp can save this film.

Jolie's Runaway Catwalk!

Mysterious Elise Ward (Angelina Jolie) travels to Venice to rendezvous with her lover, Alexander Pearce who is not only wanted by the police for the $774 million he owes in taxes but also a mobster (Steven Berkoff) for his embezzlement of around 2 billion dollars. Her every move is being watched by the French and British Police so in order to misdirect Alexander's pursuers, Elise befriends Frank Tempello (Johnny Depp), an American tourist and her co-passenger on the train to Venice, with the hope of convincing both authorities and gangsters alike that Tempello is Alexander and thus throw them off the trail. Frank, the hapless schoolteacher from Wisconin, soon finds himself the target of numerous assassins, with his only ally the woman who got him into this mess in the first place. Elise, ...

The Tourist

Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp! With these two as the lead actors, I was expecting a great movie. Instead this movie was just OK. This movie was borderline boring, and the fact that I guessed the “surprise” very early in the movie didn’t help matters. Also, I was distracted by the music score. It seemed to be always present, and at times so loud that I couldn’t hear the actors.

The story sounds good on paper, but something about this movie didn’t work…and to be frank, I think it that Angelina may have been the problem. She is great in action movies, but in this movie it seemed she felt she only needed to look gorgeous and stare at Johnny Depp.

I don’t know…it felt like a waste of good actors, not just the leads, but the supporting actors as well.

Now listen I'm an Angelina Jolie fan ( I must be god knows I've spent a lot of time defending her), and iyt goes without saying I'm a Johnny Depp fan (who isn't really?). So I gladly agreed to go watch this movie (a first date no less), the way i figured was Johnny Depp and Jolie in one movie the makings of a classic. I was all excited, didn't even mind the pushing and shoving to get into the packed cinema, even felt superior to the idiots that wasn't smart enough to buy their tickets online like i did, my immense and overwhelmingly perceptive third eye foresaw this being a sold out affair (after all it was 2 for 1 day at the Carib Theatre).

I was all snug standing there in the pre-purchased ticket line that was considerably shorter and less disheveling. So fast forward to me finding a great seat smack dab int he middle of the theatre, popcorn check, large soda, check, hershey bar check date check, he was even cuter in the dim romantically hazy lights of the cinema. Curtains draw commercial, previews lights go out movies start...and that's where the excitement ended for me i'm afraid.

It was like bad sex, predictable and anti-climatic, during intermission I seriously contemplated leaving, but I held out hope that they would clinch it in the ending, Jolie/Depp wouldn't disappoint so excruciatingly bad would they?  But alas it was not to be. I left the theatre thinking I should have watched Narnia 3D.

Golden Globe nominations are heavily weighted on the stars in the film. I think "The Tourist" was nominated (but not seen) because of Depp and Jolie. When "The Tourist" was announced, loud gasps followed.  Also, Depp recently had an interview in which he said he deliberately held back in scenes with Jolie because he did not want tabloid rumors to start. This really made the film flat.

God only knows. I saw it, and it was a poor man's Hitchcock. It shouldn't be nominated for ANYTHING.
