Critics Consensus

Allied has its moments, but doesn't quite achieve epic wartime romance status -- a disappointment made more profound by the dazzling talent assembled on either side of the camera.

    Allied will probably be remembered more for its off-screen drama between Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard and the eventual divorce to Angelina Jolie than the actual movie itself on screen, and that should tell you all you need to know about how Allied measures up to the competition. The movie thrives in its early stages as Cotillard and Pitt's characters meet for the first time on mission. We get some great shots of their interaction and the eventual segway from professionalism to realism when they fall for each other after a job they pull. We get to see the story build organically and the relationship come to fruition, but past the one mission, the movie slowly bores you into is she or isn't she double crossing everyone. The clues and hints are a little too on the nose for how it all plays out in the end, but they do their best to offer us one last twist to keep you guessing. I think Pitt is a great actor when he is allowed to act and actually speak. It's bothersome in Allied that all we mostly see of him is a passive face with quick quips. Cotillard easily shines as the better of the two given more material to work with. With strong notes of nostalgia (like from Casablanca) thanks to director Robert Zemeckis watchful eye, he unfortunately neglects giving the actors any chance of feeling like their acting in the present instead of staring off into the abyss or feeling to Shakespearean in their dialogue. Allied won't blow you away with its premise, but it's good enough to keep you on your toes despite most of the information being fed to us via dialogue from other characters than seeing any true deceit. I'm not sure this one was worth giving up the marriage.

    Allied is an intense World War II spy thriller starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. While on a mission in Casablanca a Canadian pilot named Max Vatan falls in love with a French Resistance fighter, but after taking her back to England and marrying her Max's superiors inform him that they suspect that his wife is a German spy and that he will have to kill her if it turns out to be true. The story is pretty ridiculous and is full of anachronisms; the most egregious of which is Max's openly gay sister who's also a military officer. However, the costumes and sets are remarkable well-done and give the film an authentic 1940s look. And Pitt and Cotillard do a good job at playing up the tension and suspense of their cat and mouse games. While its central mystery is quite compelling, Allied is a problematic film.

    I had hoped this film would recapture the storytelling of the classic Casablanca, but it doesn't have the story strength to deliver. Pitt is quite good in a well created role but he isn't enough to save what is a well intentioned film that misses the mark. The chemistry from the actors is great but the filmmakers seem intent to not focus on the tension of the paranoia that the situation would cause. The film needed to lose either the romantic angle and focus on who could be the mole. I just felt the filmmakers weren't focusing on delivering a modern classic, films like these don't get made anymore and this film doesn't prove otherwise. There was a great film here but sadly it just never delivers. 23-07-2017.
