The Tourist

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie – must be a winner from the start. Add in the backdrop of Venice, with magnificent locations and wardrobe and it is difficult not to be impressed.

The film is a sort of action/romcom with just enough action, but without being too scary. In a sense it is sheer escapism, though it also tickles the synapses to make the appropriate connections.

I shall give it an 8 out of 10 but you need to remember that I like gentle romance and the possibility of hope for the future.  To a more realistic viewer, it might appear light-weight and insignificant. I prefer to take it at face value. Any thoughts?

    I saw it on the small screen of television. I was not drawn in as much as I had hoped with the scenery and charismatic characters that were promised. Both are such good actors I am disappointed that the film did not please me more. Maybe the director failed in getting more out of them. The plot was good.

    I like Johnny Depp and dislike Angelina Jolie, but I might see the film someday when I am less busy. Dianne
