Has a cluster of subversive elements begging to be teased under the surface of a superficial love story.
September 7, 2019
Pitt and Cotillard have a gentle and compelling onscreen chemistry and together sell the love and the intrigue - perfect for rainy day romantics.
August 20, 2019
The director maintains the balance of melodrama and suspense, with some predictability but remembering the Hitchcock script games. [Full Review in Spanish]

The rare case where a lesser, more workmanlike director might have executed a better film.
June 25, 2019
Weak and limp as a romantic thriller, problematic as a husband/wife narrative and wholly negligible as a Nazi-era spy piece, Allied wants so badly to capture older audiences, it puts its final credits in easy-to-read, oversized print.
April 2, 2019
The tone doesn't quite work and it is definitely boring in spots but good chemistry and a pretty good story make it a decent watch.
March 22, 2019
The plot has potential, but Allied is never given the chance to develop into a riveting thriller because of its dull script and uneven execution.
March 14, 2019
Pitt and Cotillard are frustratingly close to nailing their characters, but despite missteps, create an engrossing spy thriller.
February 14, 2019
With a lush, globe-spanning aesthetic and some compelling wartime action - not to mention a romance brought to life by two supremely talented and charismatic performers - there's a lot to like here.
February 2, 2019
Through it all, Zemeckis weaves together a beautiful story of love and betrayal in wartime.
January 23, 2019
Allied plays like a beautiful montage with sumptuous sets, luxe lighting, impeccable costumes and glamorous stars.

ALLIED is at times a sweeping story that handily delivers a successful tale of romance and espionage, but other times it's a perfect film to put on while you settle in for a mid-afternoon nap.

An entertaining wartime period piece; Cotillard is a knockout, Pitt less believable. While the London-set sections are more interesting, the louche glamour of Casablanca is hard to beat for allure, mystique and pure spectacle.

About as good as "grown up" movies get this time of year
November 3, 2018
As nice as Allied is to look at, the story falls flat and lacks the tension needed to keep the audience engaged for two hours.
November 2, 2018
The talent involved really should have made Allied a fantastic film, but the final result only comes out as an entertainingly average experience. Still, we'll always have Marion Cotillard.
November 1, 2018
This spies in love drama set during World War II greatly benefits from a strong script by Steven Knight, but it can't overcome the fact that its leads seem miscast, lacking a spark in the romance that is supposed to drive the film.
October 5, 2018
Something has to be said for the old world charm that Zemeckis brings here. Unapologetically throwback, stylish, emotional -- very reminiscent of handsomely-mounted thrillers from back in the day.
August 30, 2018
Though it would benefit from being a touch shorter, Allied is a solid, sweeping war-set tale that harkens back to the golden era of the silver screen.
August 30, 2018
As much the film prospers in its visual imagery, it fails with nearly everything else.
