It's a beautiful film to look at. Unfortunately for The Tourist, looks ain't everything.

As shallow as the Venetian scenery is beautiful with a preening Jolie and a lackluster Depp stuck in what appears to be a painstakingly long travel commercial.

The Age (Australia)
December 27, 2010
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

The combination of two lazy, smug performances from its over-confident stars and a director mismatched with his material make for 2010's biggest "It seemed like a good idea at the time..." dud.

This should be a potent combination, but it turns out to be a fizzer.

Sydney Morning Herald
December 22, 2010
The tone is lightly comic, the dialogue flirty and amusing but the performances are unengaged. There's no floor of reality, as there always was in a Hitchcock film, even his light confections.

What should have been the romantic thriller of the year instead turns out to be one its biggest disappointments, as The Tourist fails to tap into the charisma of its star powered duo and falls flat in its recreation of the classic adventure model.

Even Hitchcock might have had trouble lighting a match under these two actors ...

The beautiful scenery and glamorous lead actors can't make up for the increasingly absurd plot or flat performances.
Anthony Morris
The Vine
December 20, 2010
The filmmakers forgot to give us a reason to care about anything these glamourous people do or say.

"Sure, the plot is preposterous, but the two stars look great, the scenery is spectacular and the supporting cast is a hoot."

Tepid romance and sluggish action can't match the beauty of Venice.

[I]f this desperately unentertaining film is intended as a comedy, it's even less successful than the suspense thriller it appears to be attempting to ape...

A crime thriller with a light, witty touch

The modern equivalent of Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief

The film bears less resemblance to the vintage international-intrigue movies it tries to imitate than, well, an e-cigarette does to a Gitanes.

How do you say, "I want a refund," in Italian?

Except for the opening surveillance sequence, you'd never guess that Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck also directed the Oscar-winning The Lives of Others.

Is it really that bad? No, instead it's that indifferent, which is somehow more distressing.
