[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.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Overall an interesting and at times very gripping film, but one that perhaps could have done with taking a few more risks
| Original Score: 3/5
The Tourist is a mildly pleasant cinematic journey.
A bland, badly directed, star-driven cinematic molestation of Jérôme Salle's tight-as-a-drum 2005 French thriller Anthony Zimmer.
| Original Score: 1/5
"Sure, the plot is preposterous, but the two stars look great, the scenery is spectacular and the supporting cast is a hoot."
A crime thriller with a light, witty touch
The modern equivalent of Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief
What's not to enjoy?
Two of the most fascinating people in the world in a movie that is not their best but still entertaining
| Original Score: 6/10
...a romantic thriller on the lighter side, providing ample rewards for those willing to play along.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Check your brain with the usher and lavish in the beauty of Venice in the summer with Depp and Jolie as your sneaky and energetic guides.
| Original Score: B-
Depp's likable turn as the bewildered Frank, not having a clue over what is happening, provides an everyman type who falls for a spy.
...a watchable yet forgettable piece of work...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Spectacularly scenic but don't expect much more than a frothy diversion, courtesy of cinematographer John Seale.
The steamy and barely restrained cat and mouse chemistry between Jolie and Depp is palpable throughout. And laced with stylishly provocative wit and charm, in an enigmatic tango between the entrapped nicotine nut and predatory love junkie in charge.
Romantic thriller has some mature twists.
Depp and Jolie lack sparks, but The Tourist is a light little lark of a mystery-love story.
| Original Score: B
A frothy romp through two gorgeous locations, and a script that's clever enough.
What can be said is that von Donnersmarck, who shot so claustrophobically in The Lives of Others, does know how to shoot wide to capture beauty and opulence as well as action.
It's formulaic, but all the elements are in the right order. We've seen a guy inch across ledges and fall onto fruit stands, but don't you want to see Johnny Depp have a go at it too?
