Movie synopsis

American tourist Frank (Johnny Depp) meets a mysterious beauty who drags him into a dangerous world of intrigue and espionage while traveling through Europe in director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's paranoid thriller. 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.

Editorial reviews

3 stars out of 5 -- "THE TOURIST is a throwback to classic movies like CHARADE and NORTH BY NORTHWEST where beautiful, sophisticated people answer life-threatening danger with bon mots and ingenuity."
Box Office - Pam Grady (12/10/2010)

"It's the kind of espionage caper that doesn't get made anymore, a visually sensuous picture made with tender attention to detail and an elegant, understated sense of humor."
Movieline - Stephanie Zacharek (12/09/2010)

Very boring movie with famous actors

Created: 10/04/11
I`m glad I did not buy tickets in a theater for this one. Fortunately I paid for this DVD on ebay using my ebay bucks but could spend those for something else. Boring screenplay, nothing really happening here. A true movie to sleep through. For such a big money involved in production movie makers could really make something worth watching and not waist cameras and time of both actors and the audience. You want to see Venice go there or see movie Italian Job. The Tourist is not recommended to watch unless you want to get bored on the couch at your friends house for free.

Fun suspense movie to watch with some romance thrown in

Created: 05/04/11
I have to admit that I am a Depp head and see all of his movies but do not necessarily buy them all. What makes this one so great is that it is a fun romantic movie with lots of beautiful scenery, and I do not mean just Angelina Jolie , with lots of twists and turns, not to much band language or blood. Oh and did I mention it was an original idea and not a remake of some other film or comic book star.

This was a pretty lame movie with little plot and a bit of a hook at the end. In all, it was a whole lot about nothing. Johnny Depp plays Frank Tupelo, an American tourist on vacation from Wisconsin in Venice, Italy. Angelina Jolie is Elise, and she is being watched by British officials who want her ex-boyfriend for a lot of different reasons, but mostly for taxes. She is trying to meet up with her former boyfriend, Alexander Pierce, who is on the lamb from a gangster. It seems that Alexander was this guys money man and helped himself to somewhere around two billion pounds of this guy's money, then vanished. If he did rip off two billion pounds, he owes the Crown it's share, about L844M pounds in taxes! Elise gets a message from Alexander to take the train to Venice, and on the way pick out someone similar looking to him as a diversion for the police. She picked Frank Tupelo and that is how this movie started. In Venice she winds up taking Frank to her hotel, where thugs working for the gangster show up, and almost kill Frank. This develops into a constant three way chase, with the British chasing Elise, thinking that Frank was Alexander. As it turns out, Elise was a Government agent too, under cover. But she had fallen in love with Alexander, and now had mixed allegiances. The gangsters close in on her thinking that she will lead them to Alexander and the money. The British wind up shooting the Gangster and his men, and chasing someone else who they believe to be Alexander Pierce. Frank turns out to be Pierce, and leaves a check for the British for the taxes due. Now they have no other reason to chase him.

Okay I won't lie. I'm biased, I bought it because of Angelina Jolie & Johnny Depp, love them both. Must have for any Johnny Depp or Jolie fan, especially the latter!

Fun movie with glamor, intrigue and surprises. Johnny and Angelina are at the top of their games and supporting cast is likewise! Director had a succinct point of reference and carried it through the movie. A lot like the "oldies". Venice was an extra character in the movie. The set design and costumes were picture perfect! Easy to watch again and again!
