GENOA, Italy – Is there anything better than sitting in a comfortable cinema seat with popcorn in your hands while outside it is cold and stormy?
It is the story of Frank (Johnny Depp), an American man who meets a beautiful, mysterious woman called Elise (Angelina Jolie) on a train to Venice.
Frank falls in love with Elise, but he soon gets trapped in a spiral of violence and intrigue which nearly kills him.
The Tourist has nothing new or remarkable.
The ending, which is thought to be surprising, is instead boring and unlikely. The plot itself is weak.
Depp and Jolie’s performances are the only things which prevent you from yawning, even if these can’t be considered their best.
If you were expecting more from the director of The Lives of Others, you will be disappointed, but if you are planning to visit Venice, at least The Tourist won’t make you change your mind.
