Turist, 2010

Turist, 2010
Director: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck
Cast: Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Paul Bettany

Stage: Local theatre

Turist in short: Elise (Angelina Jolie) sits next to an American tourist, Frank (Johnny Depp), on a train going to Venice. She has chosen him as a decoy, making believe that he is her lover who is wanted for police. Not only will they need to evade the police, but also the mobster whose money her lover stole.

None whatsoever. Just want to see Depp and Jolie again. How bad could it be?

Reality: Well, never say how bad can it be.. this is one of the major no-no's in this year to start with. How low can you go with picking a script, cast and the movie as you are one of the leading stars, as Depp, Jolie and Bethany definitely are? You can not just place wonder kids (cast) on the stage and locate it in Venice. Reality just doesn't work this way. It's definitely one of the worst movies lately and I don't want even to hear about it again. The storyline (plot), the cast itself, lack of energy between Depp and Jolie.. arrrrr. It just goes on and on.

On the first half you will barely see it to its end, I can assure you that. Truly sorry it ever came under my hands. I don't dare to say anything really positive about this piece, as there isn't anything positive to say. Besides the placement and cast. Content is awful, scenes, music, everything lacks. A hut never became a castle just because a king parked outside for a while. Neither did this movie. It remained in its stone age. Total waste of time. And I am sorry for the main cast. A big minus to their respectful line of great movies.

My personal rate: 2,0 (bljak. Do something else. The 2,0 is only because the cast and Venice, which is breathtaking. All the other.. not worth even mentioning).
