Movie Info

American tourist Frank (Johnny Depp) meets a mysterious beauty who drags him into a dangerous world of intrigue and espionage while traveling through Europe in director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's paranoid thriller. When Frank met Elise (Angelina Jolie) on the train, he thought it was a chance encounter. Little did Frank realize it was all part of a much bigger plan, one that would soon find him dodging bullets through both the historic streets of Paris and the winding canals of Venice. … More

"Sure, the plot is preposterous, but the two stars look great, the scenery is spectacular and the supporting cast is a hoot."

In a year of craptaculars, The Tourist deserves burial at the bottom of the 2010 dung heap.

As for Depp, his character makes so little sense that he can hardly be blamed for blinking his way through the movie with an expression of blank-faced puzzlement that recalls Dan Quayle in the 1988 vice-presidential debate.

The Tourist merely asks you to sit back and enjoy the ride, and then makes that task a breeze.

A creaking "star vehicle" for two stars who should have known better, and maybe had a little chemistry.

[The Tourist] is very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable from the very start and doesn't let up until the screen goes black, which is something that very few films are able to pull off nowadays.

Overall an interesting and at times very gripping film, but one that perhaps could have done with taking a few more risks

The National

It's a self-conscious attempt at a Hollywood caper with the mix of comedy, romance and conspiracy watered down to the point where you can see straight through it.

Depp and Jolie together create a chemical black hole. They couldn't produce sparks with dry hair and a comb.

Window to the Movies

The Tourist certainly looks fabulous - as befits the setting, the stars and the gorgeous costumes . The trouble is that Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's movie is far too elegant to break into a sweat ... The viewer's pulse doesn't quicken.

Something has gone really, really wrong here.

Full Review… | April 4, 2011

I'm afraid the stars' vacation videos are probably more interesting than this poorly handled mistaken-identity caper, which isn't funny enough to be a comedy or dramatic enough to be a thriller.

Full Review… | April 3, 2011

... somehow this lavish light thriller stumbles through the set pieces and bobbles the star chemistry.

Full Review… | March 26, 2011

An incredibly dull low-key thriller barely driven by its two A-list leads.

Full Review… | March 23, 2011

On paper, The Tourist sounds like a dream film -- two of the hottest actors alive, in a charmingly frothy romantic crime caper set in one of the most beautiful cities on earth. So why didn't it come alive on screen?

Full Review… | February 18, 2011

The Tourist is best considered an expensive travel ad for Venice rather than the sexy, action-packed, sassy thriller we were all hoping for.

The Tourist is a mildly pleasant cinematic journey.

Teria sido melhor acompanhar a viagem da personagem em tempo real até a cidade italiana do que vê-la percorrendo sonâmbula as maquinações estúpidas de um roteiro sabotado pela falta de entusiasmo de um cineasta com preguiça.

Hampered by its lack of narrative tension or palpable sense of romance.

About as much fun as standing in line at Customs for hours after a long-haul flight.

Whenever Jolie entered a room, I found my attention wandering to the European extras, whose heads keep turning to watch her. They seemed far more enchanted by her than I was. Maybe you had to be there.

Combustible Celluloid

It is disheartening on a profound level to see a group of talented actors and filmmakers come together at the height of their powers and produce something of such soul-killing drudgery as The Tourist.

Full Review… | December 30, 2010

While this farcical thriller can certainly be classified as a no-brainer, it is only on the grounds of sustained mindlessness that the tag truly sticks.

Audience Reviews for The Tourist


A nod to the great Hitchcockian noir thrillers of yesteryear it maybe but unfortunately The Tourist comes across as a spoof rather than a tribute. It's more out of date than anything, anyone who has actually been to Venice will tell you it's not as beautiful and clean as it looks on screen and Scotland Yard is not based in a beautiful old Victorian building - far from it. It's these inaccuracies that bothered me, the mixture of modern technology and old school styles just doesn't work. It's badly cast also, as good as the two leads are, this wasn't right for either of them. Paul Bettany is quite good though and it was a nice surprise to see Timothy Dalton in a role that was perfect for him. The biggest crime of all is that the 'twist' ending is glaringly obvious from the very beginning, making the whole thing extremely disappointing. The Lives of Others to this? What the hell?

"The Tourist" is a very poor movie. Of course, it represents Hollywood at it's worst. The movie was never intended to have any value. It's sole purpose was to cash in on the star power of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. There is no way that this script would have been brought to life without those names attached. "The Tourist" is as lazy as film-making gets. It's slow, uninspired, predictable, and downright annoying. Speaking of the attached star power, this is just a phoned in performance by Depp and Jolie. They play the same roles that they always do. Brace yourself for this one, Angelina Jolie is engaging in espionage! But isn't Jolie a spy in every one of her movies? Strangely enough, with as much practice as she gets in these roles, she never turns in a believable performance. When Johnny Depp isn't trying, he normally portrays a quirky character that ends up in-over-his-head, and that's exactly what you get here. It's astonishing that nobody figured out that thrusting Depp and Jolie into their comfort zones would result in zero chemistry. Then again, you have to remind yourself that nobody making the movie cared if it was entertaining. Then it all makes sense. "The Tourist" is generic garbage, that I strongly urge you to avoid. If you're a die-hard fan of Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie, you have to start watching better movies.

Critics have nothing on The Tourist because it seemed to fly right by their heads that at it's core, The Tourist is a fluff of ROMEDY and should be judged as such.

The espionage premise plays a huge backseat role in what is one of the most well acted/scripted romantic comedies I've seen in awhile. The chemistry between Depp's initial awkward persona and Jolie's astute super-spy makes for a really charming watch and simply resonates as they stumble into the oddity that is love.

I mean, let's look at other recent films that tackled this particular genre. There's Cruise's glossy, over-the-top cliche-filled "Knight & Day" and Kutcher's "Killers" which was literally the same product but with even worse execution.

If you can honestly make that comparison and say The Tourist wasn't better then you either have an amateur sense of humor or an unhealthy obsession with explosions/action.

It's cute, romantic, charming and at the same time somewhat elegant in that it plays with very classical spy-themes and archetypes.

Another disappointing movie, seems to be the year for it i guess!
You couldnt get any better than two of the finest hollywood actors to come together in one movie with a superb supporting cast and then the movie to still be the rubbish!
great location and scenery but i went to watch a romantic thriller and that isnt what i got. Not worth the effort of watchin!
