Bottom line--if you like subtle (or not so subtle) humor, with a nice romance and a love for a chase or two, not to mention Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, try this!
The 4K UHD ultra hi-definition did not improve the picture quality nor got the story-line any new perspective in anyways so it was no big improvement for me. Overall, it is watchable once for that "one time" evening action-comedy-drama that both the lead actors are nicely capable of.
Worthy of three stars!
Terrible script, bad acting (Paul Bettany - has he EVER been in a movie and not played this role?), cookie-cutter "villains" right out of Screenwriting 101 playbook, a terrible score by the occasionally talented James Newton Howard. But the crime here, the real crime, is the power and money seducing of a man whose first film was a classic - The Lives of Others. But, that allure must have been strong, however it did him no good whatsoever. And let's talk about THAT for a minute. This film cost over 100 million bucks. It grossed around 60 million in the States. And they would have everyone believe that the overseas grosses were over 240 million bucks. Nope, not possible, total BS - international grosses were NEVER a thing like they are today - it began happening in the 90s, this lying about grosses no one could actually check. Because let me tell you something - if this film had grosses like that, the director would have been sought after for EVERY Hollywood film being made. He wasn't. Also, the SAY 100 million for the budget - add on another 50 or 60 for promotion, maybe even more. And then ask the profit participants how much they've made - the answer will be zero because it simply tanked and no one wants to admit it. Transfer is fine, movie is a mess. But on Amazon - they LOVE it!!!

Personally I also liked the story of the obsessive detective (Paul Bettany) investigating a multi million financial fraud. His only lead, the beautiful Elise (Jolie), leads him on a wild goose chase, cottoning on to a hapless American maths teacher on a holiday (Depp). While there are a few fun semi-action scenes on canals and rooftops of the venerable city, this is style over action all the way. Jolie is impossibly glamourous in a way that reminds of Sophia Loren (though she doesn't come anywhere near equaling that grand dame of Hollywood glamour). With the slovenly school teacher Johnny Depp plays another one of those odd characters he does so well. Steven Berkoff is perfect as villain of the piece. Paul Bettany has the dogged investigator down to a tee, and my only regret is that there is not more of Timothy Dalton who plays his superior. His appearance amounts to no more than a couple of short cameos.
The story takes its time developing, but it is well written (Julian Fellowes who also penned Downton Abbey and Gosford Park is one of the screenwriters), and with the beautiful heroine and the stunning filming locations it works well enough. You have plenty time to enjoy all the beauty. There are a few mildly comedic moments involving Depp's character being out of his element, at one time scrambling across the roofs of Venice in his pyjamas. Between the style and the glamour and the occasional moments of levity, this is reminiscent of the heist films and crime capers from the 60s. And that's not a bad thing. What you get here is a perfect bit of fluffy escapism with a story that works and is easy to follow. Sit back and escape to the magic of Venice for an evening.
