Movie Review: The Tourist

"The Tourist" is a good example that casting two A-list celebrities will not make a dull and lukewarm plot any better. It wasn’t thrilling, romantic, or dramatic like how the movie's supposed genre, it was just one hour and 43 minutes of looking at pretty scenes and people.

The storyline consist Angelina Jolie playing her usual “vixen with a British accent that can kick your ass” character who fell in love with Johnny Depp, a traveler she met on a train. It was nothing more than a PG 13 "I love you and you love me" relationship with a crap load of creepy stalking.

There were many awkward moments that leave you embarrassed of the dialog between the two lovers. Angelina was quite pretty, but she also flaunt her physical assets to a point that it got redundant and annoying. We get it Angelina, you are so beautiful that you can even steal other A-listers’ husbands.


The only good part is the visual with the glorious hotels, boats and views of Venice. Even Johnny Depp was bland in it and he is looking... old- Would I still jump him? Of course.

Overall, “The Tourist” is a dull movie that hope to capitalize on two famous Hollywood stars. Don’t even bother renting it on DVD. Wait a few years and watch it for free on the W Channel.

I give this movie 2.5/5 Brad Pitts. Since he consistently make better movies than his wife...

  1. I have been wanting to see this movie ever since I saw paparazzi pictures from the set. Regardless of the acting I think for the leads I am willing to shill out the cost of a ticket...or maybe like you, wait for it to be on cable tv. :)

  2. I am glad that you did the review. I am planning to go see the movie this weekend. I might still do regardless. Although, I am not a huge fan of Angelina but I agree she is absolutely beautiful

  7. Angelina is so beautiful, but yeah, it doesn't help if the acting sucks. Too bad, I would have liked to see these two put together something amazing.

    btw, love your lookbook with Chicshop, you did an amazing job!

  8. Yea, this review is pretty much on target with my thoughts when I saw the previews. Johnny Depp/Angelina Jolie...two good looking people, but even on paper, they don't make any sense. I don't see how they can have any chemistry. That pairing makes no sense :o/

  9. Johnny Depp is one of my all time favourite actors..its a shame your opinions about the movie are not promising..well like everybody else I guess I´ll wait to see it on TV...and Brad Pitt does make soo much better movies than Angelina...and I do think he is actually a really good actor but it is a shame (at least that´s how I feel)that many people pass that just because of his good looks.

  11. julie -- i wanted to go see this movie! after what you said, i think i will pass. johnny depp is always good, but i guess this is an exception.

  12. Hahaha, the way you rate this movie is hilarious. So, that's the first time I ever hear about this movie, needless to say, I am not planning on watching it. I just hate movies, chic flicks especially and this movie seems like one of those cheesy movies. I was never impressed by any A-list celebrities, something must be wrong with my genes.
    Oh, thank you so much. I always keep my boots away from rain, mud, so, that's why they are always clean. If it happens to rain while I am wearing them, I just hide in a coffee shop until the rain stops, even if it takes a couple of hours. True story...

  14. her movies always tend to suck, in my opinion. I'll probably check it out on dvd just for the wardrobe and views. :)

  15. I was so curious about this movie...A-listers, unbeatable settings and all...but I think I'll pass after seeing your review. I was kind of afraid it might be like this, but this is true confirmation! (Loving your dig with the Brad Pitt rating! Ha!)

  19. I was hoping this movie would be a hit, what with the sexy chemistry between A.J. and Depp, plus they're both great actors.

  25. I'm always up for learning a few new tips on creepy stalking, but I'm going to take your advice and skip this one.

    I don't think I would jump her. You can never be 100% sure until you have a chance to turn down the opportunity, but I don't think I would.

  31. Thanks for saving us some dough! Also, I like your rating system. XD

  32. "I give this movie 3/5 Brad Pitts. Since he consistently make better movies than his wife..." haha, yeah agree with you with that! II've seen Mr and Mrs Smith and i think that if it weren't for Brad that movie wouldn't be a hit!

    I never liked Jolie anyway, but just bec Depp is the male leading cast..i wanted to see this soon! :)

  33. Nice and very honest review. I am planning to watch this movie and yeah we'll see. hahaha :)

  35. Thank you for the sound review. You say exactly what I feared about this film. Writing is at the heart of cinematic art and, without it, we're left to merely look at pretty people and places. That isn't enough to satisfy me and I appreciate your opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  36. HAHA! Depp may look, ahem, quite aged in that movie, but hey, I doubt anyone would miss the chance to jump him! Outside of the movie, he's the sexiest man alive. My dream man!!!

  38. Spot on review of an over hyped movie. Saw it the same as you have reviewed with lackluster performances. Very poorly written plot. Incepetion was a 100 times better,

  41. lol I get what u mean about Jolie getting redundant. I got a lil tired from just the trailers.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yeah i heard it wasn't very good, too bad too because I wouldn't mind a good excuse to watch Johnny Depp for an hour or two... oh well I think I'll be waiting for this one to come out on DVD.

    thanks for the heads up :)

    XOXO

  43. I'm really enjoying Johnny Depp's facial expressions in the screen caps you included. It's like he's pained by Angelina Jolie's cliched role and struggling to remember why he signed on to do this movie in the first place.

  44. Anything with Angelina in it is like porn to me. She's so beautiful it makes me tingly all over
