Goofs

When Frank jumps from the balcony into the fruit market, escaping his chasers, you see him going down with his feet in front, landing on his heels. He would then come to rest on his behind. Instead, in the continuity cut, he jumps forward, pushing the policeman into the canal. See more »

Not as good as expected
10 December 2010 | by pjvandiSee all my reviews

Considering the previous great movie of this director(The lives of others), I was expected far more complicated story for "The Tourist". Although it has an amusing and even surprising story line, it leaves you with nothing when you step out of the cinema. None of the performances catches you as a great job. Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp are good choices to attract the fans to the cinemas and they will almost quench their thirst of seeing sensually powerful Jolie and smart Depp with his charming sense of humor. But you think everything is formulated. after all that chasing and hiding and surprising themes, there is nothing about human being or conscientiousness that stays with you after the movie. It would've been a good "James Bond" type movie with some more action scenes. Specially when you see Timothy Dalton as a British Chief Inspector, this idea becomes ironically stronger.
