The tourist

Scotland yard is after a mysterious man named Alexander Pearce who has stolen 744 million dollars , but has changed his face by plastic surgery, and so is unrecognizable . They try to get to him by tracking his lover Angelina Jolie .

Angelina Jolie throws them off-track by hitching up with a tourist who looks like Alexander ( Johnny Depp ) ,but in the process ends up falling in love with him.......

Unfortunately some other bad guys are also after Alexander , and they attack Depp thinking he is him .

The film has some beautiful photography of European cities taken obviously from helicopter , and some breathtaking scenes of the European countryside as a train passes through it.

The action is well-paced and the movie has class written all over it......right from the suite where Angelina stays in Italy to the clothes she wears.....

Verdict--nice....

Re: The tourist

Watch Black Swan if you like dark thrillers... I forgot to add that in addition to Natalie Mila make out scene... there is a scene of Natalie enjoying her own company ... ab to jaakar dekh lo.
Everywhere it is rated better than Tourist.

Re: The tourist

I saw True Grit . If you like Western movies you may like it . There is no dramatization and there is no overtly hammed situations . At some places it gets slow , but the lead actress is fun to watch . Josh Brolin is wasted .

So yes, I had read correctly elsewhere that The Tourist had bombed!! Thanks smelly for the misleading reply which made me doubt what I had read.

Re: The tourist

Peter Travers is full of shit sometimes.. There are some enjoyable movies in that list.. And I don't agree with his 10 best list either..
