Review: The Tourist

American tourist Frank (Johnny Depp) meets a mysterious beauty who drags him into a dangerous world of intrigue and espionage while traveling through Europe. When Frank met Elise (Angelina Jolie) on the train, he thought it was a chance encounter. Little did Frank realize it was all part of a much bigger plan, one that would soon find him dodging bullets through both the historic streets of Paris and the winding canals of Venice. Now, the faster Frank and Elise run, the more intense their romance grows.

I kept hearing a lot of buzz around this movie, and I always go to any movie that stars Johnny Depp. People talked about Angelina Jolie that she is the star of the show but I’m a bit tired of her these days, she is over hyped and some of her movies haven’t been to great. Together they did a really good job of playing off each other and pulling the storyline together and Johnny Depp did a fantastic job playing the dumb American, you couldn’t help but feel sorry for the guy and he kept getting into trouble. The movie was and ended with a great twist, and I really like how from the halfway point to the end of the movie it was energetic, full of action, and fun.

SALT – Trailer

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who Is Salt?”

Looks like Angelina is playing her perfect role again, ass kicking woman in a crazy action flick, you don’t know whats going own until the end. Seems to be her own version of the Bourne Identity, I know I’m going to be watching this movie when I have a chance.
