The Tourist is the latest movie starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, a movie with plenty of intrigue and mystery and two great movie stars.
The one thing that is special about The Tourist when compared with Angelina Jolie's past movies is that it has a spin on its action approach. While other movies focus on great stunts, to make sure they get people in the movie theater, the co-writer and director of the movie, von Nonnersmarck, decided to make the focus of the movie the relationship between the main two characters.
Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie are huge movie stars and they manage to create some very nice chemistry, thanks to their huge acting ability. Even though the movie's plot is shown from the trailers, you manage to forget about it, thanks to the way the character's relationship develops over the course of the movie. Frank and Elise continue to protect each other as the movie progresses. I liked the way the movie is different from other action movies and I'll try to see it again as soon as possible.
While other movies focus on the way people steal money, The Tourist focuses on what happens after the hit, when they're running from the police and trying to escape. The getaway part of the crime is well thought out by Alexander and Elise and the movie benefits from those well thought plans.
Even though Charlize Theron and Tom Cruise were the initial stars of the movie, the replacing actors, Jolie and Depp, do a great job and the movie is worth seeing.
