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.

  • For all the effort poured into period recreation, the world of the film remains abstract, bordering on fantasy.

    Dec 23, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Cotillard is the sole bright spot, and even she risks being upstaged by her fantastic wardrobe.

    Dec 1, 2016 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Zemeckis is a master of the big, broad Oscar-bait drama, and he makes the most of a well-constructed screenplay by Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises)

    Dec 1, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Zemeckis's formidably staunch and precise technique, itself a nostalgic vestige of classic Hollywood movies, seals up the movie's joints and keeps the air of life out; it's a suffocated, lifeless adventure.

    Dec 1, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Zemeckis ... seems uncertain whether to treat the tale as a wrenching saga of split loyalties or as a glamorous jaunt. Having gathered all the ingredients for derring-do, he forgets to turn up the heat, and the derring never does.

    Nov 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • What a handsome empty shell of a movie Allied is. Despite the star power of Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, their scenes together fail to ignite even a glimmer of a spark.

Audience Reviews for Allied


Dare to retool Casablanca? Are you out of yer tiny little mind?! But apparently Zemeckis has balls of brass. Unfortunately the leading man fails to arrive, mailing his performance in. This leaves Cotillard the interesting problem of performing their scenes practically all by her lonesome. A great might-have-been.

If all their spies were this deadly boring, the Germans might have won WWII.

A silly movie that believes to be romantic, sexy and tense when in fact it is only bland and banal, unable to engage us the way it wants and never audacious to come up with something clever - and its poor attempt at placing the romance above all else in the end makes it too vapid.

The first half displays the action and build up expected the travel through to the end. however it dazzles out leaving you with an unsatisfying and unsuspenseful ending!
