The Tourist isn't a debacle, but it's a caper that's fatally low on carbonation.

Goes about its game so bloodlessly, the result is some of the most unexciting action and seduction sequences in recent memory.

It may be the only movie ever to feature a bad performance by Johnny Depp, one of the best actors working in films.

Staggeringly misjudged in virtually every department, from the wannabe effervescent script to Johnny Depp's dopey hairdo.

Wall Street Journal

'The Tourist' Movie Review...

By vaanan_kannan
The Tourist is one entertaining romp largely due to Depp, who carries it on his shoulders with ease...Right off the bat with the introduction of Frank , his expressions, eyes, body language, and tiny...

Dumbfounded by how bad this movie is

By rasfar
The plot is painfully predictable, without any fun to make it bearable. The writing is absolutely horrible. Why the big names in this movie would choose to continue after reading it (especially based...

The Tourist: Tour Guided by Excellence

By sunnyforever
A fantabulous movie, this slow paced WHO IS IT captures the essence of old Hollywood, when Directors took their time to build characters. This is so tastefully done and well acted by Angelina, Depp,...

Angelina's elegant, Johnny's fun

The movie was phenomenal! Although it started a bit slow, and we seemed to be waiting for some more "007/Bond-like" action, it was subtle and suspenseful offering many twists and turns. Depp is one...
