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.

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.

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.

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 …

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.&nbsp; 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.
