A silly inane story lacking strong characters and ay sense of adventure.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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?

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.

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.

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.
