Now this was a film I half-expected to be disappointed with, as it has received poor reviews, but I had to see it because I am a big fan of Johnnie Depp.
In spite of the two thoughtless idiots sitting behind me (see earlier post), I absolutely loved it. Which, considering how much the idiots annoyed me, is rather saying something!
I thought it very evocative of the kind of movie that Cary Grant used to make – North By Northwest, Charade, To Catch A Thief – a thriller with touches of comedy, doubts about identity, and glamorous international travel.
Depp and his co-star, Angelina Jolie, both gave good performances, as did the supporting actors, particularly Paul Bettany.
Forget the reviews, go to see this, it is a fun film.
