    More from Mrsoundbite : "The Tourist" movie review


    Its Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie together for the first time on the big screen for "The Tourist".

    Jolie plays a woman being chased by Scotland Yard and the mob because of her ex-boyfriend,

    who has stolen a lot of money. They believe Jolie's "ex" has had plastic surgery and when she uses Depp as a decoy,  everyone thinks Depp is her ex, when, in movie reality, he is merely a math  teacher from Wisconsin.

    Jolie spends most of the film striking poses and I never really bought into the fact that Depp was some math teacher from Wisconsin. I did, however, like the chase scenes through Venice. Paul Bettany was also convincing as the bloodhound from Scotland Yard.

    "The Tourist" is somewhat of a throwback, with Depp playing the Cary Grant role...and Jolie playing the part Catherine Hepburn and Grace Kelly may have played.

    Sady...they never generate the spark of the classic capers...I'm a big fan of Depp and Jolie, I have interviewed both of them many times, but after seeing this film, which could have used a few more action sequences, I wasn't buying into all the fun and

    games in one of the most romantic cities on earth. The bottom line...all the glitz, glamour,

    A-list actors, and opulent backdrops can't distract from this "by-the-numbers" cops and robbers movie. See my review and see for yourself.
