John and Jane Smith are a normal married couple, living a normal life in a normal suburb, working normal jobs...well, if you can call secretly being assassins "normal". But neither Jane nor John knows about their spouse's secret, until they are surprised to find each other as targets! But on their quest to kill each other, they learn a lot more about each other than they ever did in five (or six) years of marriage. Written by
In one scene, Benjamin Danz, played by Adam Brody, is wearing a Fight Club t-shirt while being interrogated by John Smith, played by Brad Pitt. Pitt was one of the stars of Fight Club (1999). See more »
John and Jane appear to break into the Kost Mart. Following this we see a wide shot showing the black SUVs approaching the Kost Mart, and across a parking lot driveway we see the Home Made building to the left. All the SUVs and assassins go to the right, towards the Kost Mart, and we see them searching that building. The team then finds the unlocked Kost Mart door and storms inside. During the shootout, based on the interior signage, all of a sudden everyone is inside the Home Made building. See more »

OK, I'll go first. Um... Let me say, uh, we don't really need to be here. See, we've been married for five years.
Five, six years.

I find it quite hard to..i don't know..analyse this movie.
On one hand this could be a masterpiece, with the swirling clever cinematography and the obvious chemistry between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (as they hitched up in real life during the filming). But, on the other hand, this is a stupid film, just an action flick, trying to be emotional and meaningful but turned out trying to be a blockbuster.
I hope you see what i mean. I have rated this film 7, because of the reasons above, as the clever cinematography mixed with some good fun comedy and watchable action can't be that harmless can it. Can it? See for yourself.
