Like watching a carwreck

Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's 'The Lives of Others' was a brilliant study in voyeurism and the human capacity for both cruelty and humanity... This is like its evil simpleton twin. It looks like a cheap TV movie - and the script and acting are worse. Depp is plain two-dimensional, his face and acting flabby - even the always sultry Angelina Jolie looks...

Beautiful setting Let down by acting

This movie had the right pace and ultimately the right intrigue to get you involved. But it lacked one major element, chemistry. Its too hard for johnny depp to be believe-ably inept - Poor angelina looked beautiful but wooden so no matter how beautiful it was to watch.. the pace was broken by two dolls pretending to be infatuated when in fact they needed...

Predictable but nice locations

It did not take long to pick the ending for this which was a biut of a shame. Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie really try to make this work but this movie is way to predicatable to be overly enjoyable.

Enjoyable, but not quite there...

Jolie is dressed exquisitely and looks stunning, and watching the film with my wife meant I appreciated this aspect more :) The setting in Venice is stunning, but the music score is a little eclectic. Shades of Hitchcock are here, with an 'out of water' everyman protagonist, meeting on a train, and the mystery of just what is going on... there are hints...

An ok DVD at home?

The background scenes of Venice and costumes were excellent but sadly that's not what a good movie is all about - especially given current prices of going to the movies! The story line was disappointing and Angeline Jolie seemed to be dropped into the cast to serve as 'eye candy' and to be a name to 'sell' the movie. Don't be in a rush to see this one.

Starpower isn't enough

The plot for the movie sounded derivative, but surely the two star actors would guarantee us something with lavish special effects, clever dialogue and snappy scenes? Unfortunately not. This is quite a botch-up job. The director and actors appear to have taken their pay and just trundled out very banal performances. No surprise for Von Donnersmarck perhaps...

Ok and predictable

this film is let down by the hype. I was expecting more but came out with no surprises. Instead of European cinema way of telling a story Angelina and Johnny should stick to what they do best...American visuals

Like a beautifully tailored suit that starts to smell funny after a few minutes, this sumptuous but stultifying lark sets up a quasi-Hitchcockian intrigue between two strangers abroad, but smothers any thrills or sparks in a haze of self-regard.

Hot stars in a hot spot - but this Tourist is a trap, striving to conjure a mood of suave romanticism but feeling rushed, harried and workmanlike.

Jolie never ignites, and neither does the movie. Mr. Depp doesn't fare better with a role that forces him to play meek and disappointingly mild, despite a few screenwriter-supplied tics.

There's a way to make a movie like The Tourist, but Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck doesn't find that way.

Staggeringly misjudged in virtually every department, from the wannabe effervescent script to Johnny Depp's dopey hairdo.

If you just want to look with admiration and Johnny and/or Angelina – and why wouldn't you? – this offers the full scenic tour, but it's one of those frustrating almost-good films which never really catches fire.
