A mysterious woman who’s being monitored by Interpol named Elise (Angelina Jolie) is called to meet up with her husband, a man on the run for two years for tax evasion and embezzling over $2 Billion from an angry gangster. En route Elise is instructed to pick a man of similar size and build to her husband to serve as a decoy for all parties interested. In this case she chooses Frank (Johnny Depp). Unbeknownst to Frank, he’s now a target for both the mob and the authorities. But as the case may have it, Elise is also a secret British agent, Frank would appear to be in good hands, or is he? Twisting and turning, the two must band together to find freedom, but who will foot the bill? For a film that appears to be all about action and adventure from two of Hollywood’s most desirable actors, this one unfortunately leaves a lot to be desired. You might even be able to classify it as pulp cinema. Two pretty actors, check, slow and thin meaningless plot, check, exotic locations, check, a few chase scenes, check. Add in a half baked twist or two and you’ve got The Tourist.  And, while there’s nothing inherently wrong with any of these components, the big takeaway leaves you hungry for something with a little more substance. A mindless matinee at the most, but more rental-esque, The Tourist is rated PG-13.
