Film Review: The Tourist (12A)

Two of Hollywood’s hottest stars, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, team up in this thriller based in Italy.

Frank (Depp) is an American tourist, taking a trip to Italy to mend his broken heart.

Whilst there he meets Elise (Jolie), but their meeting is no accident and Frank finds himself in the middle of a dangerous chase.

Paul Bettany, Rufus Sewell and Timothy Dalton complete the star studded cast in this whirlwind of intrigue, danger and romance.

Unfortunately the chemistry between Depp and Jolie lacks that spark, but there’s it doesn’t deter too much from a solid performance overall. A powerful and sophisticated thriller.

(Four stars)
