THE TOURIST Film Review

Friday, December 10th, 2010





Just like Elise (Angelina Jolie), this movie is ravishing to the eye but ravenous it is not. The strongest aspect of this film is the cast itself, as you would have imagined. Putting two huge cinematic names together, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, is bound to attract an audience by default regardless of the quality of the movie. I was really hoping that it wasn’t going to rely on just that and unfortunately, it mostly does. I had a good amount of anticipation for this movie, given these two working together, and I was only partially satisfied. They both did okay with their performances but not their best, by far. Angelina, as always, is stunning and mysterious which is her expertise. Johnny is witty and simple. He didn’t unnecessarily complicate his character. READ FULL MOVIE REVIEW

The opportunity to care and protect Mallory supplants the void Doug’s marriage has left in his heart, and brings new meaning to his life. Doug decides to sell his business and stay in New Orleans to give Mallory the attention and help she can’t bring herself to ask for.

What initially seems to be the final straw that will derail their marriage turns out to be the inspiration for Lois and Doug to renew their love for each other.
