In Canada its pronounced "lef-tenant" not "loo-tenant" as it is in the United States military. All Canadian Forces Lieutenant's either Navy, Army or Air Force are all pronounced this way. See more »
I was excited for this film after seeing the trailer and after watching this film there wasn't lots to be overly enjoyed about. The premise of the film sees two secret agents fall in love when one of them is accused of being a spy. Brad Pitt is the lead in his film and he does a very good job in this film, he is charming When he needs to be and is tough when he needs to be. You buy his character as he goes through the journey of this film you attempt to feel sympathy for his character and the situation. Marion cotillard plays his wife in this film and she does a good job in the film. You see her character development through the film and her character does grow and become more interesting as the film progresses. I also feel her and Pitt worked well together. But the rest of the supporting cast had absolutely no purpose to them and you won't care about them even when the film tries to do so. The story has an interesting dynamic between the two leads which does create an interesting mystery in the film. Unfortunately, the first half of the film feels like a completely different film and the shift in storytelling makes it feel disjointed and hard to care about certain things in the film. The script has some great dramatic dialogue as you see the two characters develop throughout the film. But this is a very lifeless affair with no humour at all and some of the smaller dialogue and moments feel very weak and bland that hurts the overall product. The style has some great action scenes in it that are very hard hitting, but they just don't come along enough an this film does end up feeling allot longer then it actually is. Overall this is an alright film buy unless you're really interested it might no be worth a watch.
