The Tourist (2010)
Enjoy the movie as it goes
Great movie. For all of the naysayers out there that seemed to get the story wrong here is how you needed to see from the movie.
First, the movie is not centered on Depp, it's around Jolie. The first 10 to 15 minutes are about her and her situation.
Second, Depp never makes any statements about coming to Italy to grieve or escape from his "loss" of a wife. There are only two lines that mention any sort of women in his life.
Third, the plot is not as far fetched as everyone makes is seem. Everyone seemed to be looking for a serious thriller or a romantic comedy, it is neither. This is a heist movie. Think of it like you would the "Italian Job" with funny moments here and there, but a serious theme throughout.
For the critics that say that Depp was puffy and boring, I think that you are missing the point of the character. If I was a math teacher from Wisconsin and a women that looked like and was dressed like Angelina Jolie sat next to me and was telling me to ask her to dinner, I doubt that most guys would be playing all cool, they would be shocked. Depp embodied the way that most people would react in this situation.
Spoiler alert: Skip if you don't want to know the ending!!! The ending is amazing. Forget what people are saying about "I could see this coming" or "it was so unbelievable". All movies have some elements that are unbelievable to them; this one will grab you and make you go "dang". Once you THINK about the story and how it has developed you will see how it all fits together. Everyone has mentioned how Rufus Sewell keeps showing up here and there and it makes no sense. Sewell's character is being told what to do by Depp, notice how he only shows up at the places that Jolie is told to go by her husband (Depp) the café, the hotel, the ball.
END OF SPOILERS The ending is amazing and this movie is well worth the time and money if you let it stand on its own. Not every woman in Venice is trying to be Audrey Hepburn and Depp is not playing Grant. Let these actors make their own image and legacy. Enjoy the movie as you watch it. Don't guess the ending because if you do that all the time you might as well not go to see any.
