Mr. & Mrs. Smith Reviews
The action scenes are engaging but it's the playful and almost childlike exchange between the couple that keeps the audience entertained. While not known for his comedic talents, Pitt delivers the laughs in his own unique manner and the amusing Vince Vaughn only adds to the entertainment.
Although burdened with a predictable plot and an anticlimactic ending reminiscent of a 'Gun Kata' fight sequence from Kurt Wimmer's Equilibrium, one still enjoys the film for what it is, a fun movie.
A (not entirely happily) married couple, John and Jane Smith (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) lead seemingly average suburban lives. However, unbeknownst to each other, each of them is a contract killer. Things come to a head when they both get a contract to kill the same guy...
Starting interestingly enough. Quite funny and intriguing. From a point, however, it just degenerates into a common-or-garden action movie. Is mostly silly, one-dimensional and predictable after that.
Performances are fine though. This is the movie where the Pitt-Jolie romance started and the chemistry between them is tangible.
Good support from Vince Vaughn. I'm generally not a fan of his movies but here he does good work, providing some of the funnier moments. Maybe he should just avoid lead roles...
