THE TOURIST (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

The Tourist
—features an unusual teaming of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie—has a wonderfully unexpected twist in its conclusion. It’s got a few dragging scenes such as the two boat scenes where everyone takes just a bit too long to shoot character Elise Clifton-Ward (Jolie). But, other than that, the film is more than a worthy watch. It reminds one of mystery, action, dramas of the earlier days of movie making and presents a welcome storyline.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The audience is presented with an eyeful of Angelina Jolie, who is paired with male lead, Johnny Depp. It is difficult to pair Jolie due to her overwhelming stage presence, but Depp manages to hold his own without an obvious struggle in this quite entertaining movie.
