The Tourist Reviews
Posted 12.10.10 by reelz
The highly anticipated Johnny Depp–Angelina Jolie pairing turns out to be a near-epic fail.
"...plays like a quaint artifact from a lost world. It goes down, or sideways, like a cup of caffeine-free mint tea — a thriller for those who prefer to keep their vital signs nice and steady."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...astonishingly lifeless and awkward, reducing two of the world's biggest movie stars to something akin to shy, pimply teenagers on their first date."
— Scott Tobias, Onion AV Club
"Staggeringly misjudged in virtually every department, from the wannabe effervescent script to Johnny Depp's dopey hairdo, this zero-chemistry pairing of Angelina Jolie and Depp stands as an object lesson in the perils of succumbing to the siren call of big-time Hollywood filmmaking for a foreign director with one art house hit behind him."
— Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
"...tedious, sluggishly directed and terribly written. Dialogue is beyond stilted, as if badly translated from another language."
— Claudia Puig, USA Today
"...fails on every conceivable level."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
