My only real criticisms were perhaps how quickly Jolie's character, Elise, developed such a deep emotional attachment to Depp's character, Frank, when she was supposedly in love with Alexander, or the credibility of the cursory back story of Jolie's character. Perhaps a few more scenes with Depp and Jolie may have solidified the emotional involvement between the two main characters, but both actors portrayed their characters well within the film. The talents of Paul Bettany, Steven Berkoff, Timothy Dalton, Raoul Bova, and Rufus Sewell also bear mentioning. Their performances were equally entertaining as well, in both the dramatic and subtle comedic moments throughout the film.
A special mention to James Newton Howard and Gabriel Yared for the music. Newton's music score truly captured the beauty and action throughout the film, and Yared's "Dance in F" was exquisitely moving in its grace. The film's soundtrack often was hauntingly beautiful and easily reflected a romantic intimacy that other movie scores simply lack.
The Tourist leads the audience into a world of intrigue, beauty, and glamorous elegance with beautiful locations and equally beautiful "movie stars" that many overlooked in favor of more mainstream films, which was unfortunate for this cinematic, charming escape. Don't make the same mistake. The Tourist is worthy of a look.
Jolie and Depp do top-notch jobs. The story is engaging, the character development is good, and you are not likely to figure out what's really going on until the very end.
There are great backdrops, and I have to say that even though I don't care much for who-dunnits I like this film and I'm very happy that it's part of my collection.
To sum up, I'd say that this is a dark horse film that received very little attention when it was released, and is something of an underdog. I suggest that you give it a look/another look and see what you thnk.
4 solid stars. It's not just for Depp or Jolie fans.
Chitchats Wholesale is an excellent company. I got the lowest price with them. They shipped my movie right away (on a Sunday morning!!!). I received it in just four days, on the promised date (I do not live within the "contiguous" states and with other companies it's usually taken more than a week to get my order delivered via "standard shipping"). It was a great surprise to receive it SO fast.
The movie had been carefully placed inside a good, protective packaging and it is brand new. The DVD still had the plastic seal all around it when I got it... I mean, this guys are great!
