The movie was a love story about two spies during WWII. As it turns out, one is a legitimate spy and one is not. Anyway, Brad Pitt and Marion C. are both great actors and they are great in this film. It has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Costume Design. Good story line and authentic in its WWII history props. Keeps you guessing until the end who is really the spy. I would recommend this film.
Totally entertaining, kept you guessing. Definitely worth seeing
Well made. Worth seeing especially for fans of the 'Casablanca" type films of back in the day. Actress Marion Cotillard steals the show as an updated version of Marlene Dietrich. Brad Pitt generously lets her steal it in an underplayed costar role. Slow first half of the movie builds nicely with more and more intrigue until the final showdown at (guess where ?) yes the airport. Question: why do antique cars used in period films always appear immaculate....even in a dusty desert. Go figure.
Beautiful love story but not a chick flick. I highly recommend this movie.
Enjoyed this movie. The time period covered was exceptionally depicted. Found it to begin slow and then the story line took on a life of its own. The two lead actors performance was impressive. Not a huge Brad Pitt fan but thoroughly enjoyed him in this role
Good, and a plot that I could actually follow instead of a dozen different directions and dead ends. Very good period costumes, scenery, period weapons, cars etal are a visual treat. Never cared for Brad Pitt, but he is an excellent actor and finally a masculine image unlike the Cruise guy who does impossibly stupid feats which ruin realism. It flowed, had a good story, acting,and my wife and I enjoyed it.
Not as fast paced as the trailers. First 40 minutes seemed painfully slow and there was little suspense. When you get to crux of story then there is some tension and envolvement. Much of the movie was shot in low natural light which have contributed the slow feel. It is an old fashioned movie.. We went to cheap early show. Not worth paying top dollar.
Was expecting more action, surprisingly dull except for the opening 1/2 hour. There were too many 'no ways' in this movie to take it seriously. The acting was okay but not exceptional. Wait for the DVD.
Good movie! My husband was reluctant to see this thinking it was just a love story/chick flick. When we left the theatre he looked at me and said "well I was wrong". We both really enjoyed this. I'll leave it to that, as it is hard to discuss the movie without giving too much away.
While this film had potential for greatness it fell short in several areas including historical accuracy. The costumes were superb as was the art direction and cinematography. The lovemaking in the car during a sandstorm was particularly well done. The acting perfurmanced by Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard were adequate for a only passable script. Both could have done better had the writers and director Robert Zemekis tried harder. The other were the boo boos. If you believed the film, females in the military could openly be exhibitionist lesbians in the 1940s. Hardly! They would have been kicked out of the service as degenerates and security risks and possibly jailed. Also senior officers and ranks weren't in the habit of snorting lines of cocaine at the house parties of other officers. I saw the movie on a cheap Tuesday night so it wasn't a complete waste of time and money. But if you prefer to watch serious Oscar contenders this time of year, wait until next April and rent it for a couple of bucks.
Welled played by both main actor and actress!
Very well done really good acting
Interesting depiction of the human intrigues of war and it's challenges with espionage.
Fantastic, Suspenceful, Romantic all around Great movie! Must see. Saw it twice.
I enjoyed this movie from beginning to the end.
excellent film, don't listen to the yo yo's giving it a low rating, it was really good and would see it again on the big screen, would say more but don't want to give anything away in allied
surprisingly boring. fair two stars
loved this movie......
The critics were wrong on this one. I loved this movie. Would watch it again and recommend it to my friends. Acting was great, moved along nicely telling the story. Cried at the end.
i love this movie, i deeply felt sad about the outcome, i strongly recommend this movie to be watched, the plot will be stuck in ur mind for days
This movie had a few draggy spots, but overall it was a good movie to see and it's in a different era.
It had everything - Intrigue, action and romance. I don't usually care for Brad Pitt but he was great in this.
Intriguing but slow in spots.
Excellent movie! Would watch it again.
Need to disagree, wait for this one to come out on DVD or better still, get it for free at the library.
Brad Pitt deserves Best Actor nomination - its Oscar season once again and this one deserved a lot of attention. I give 5 stars for one great movie. I was shocked with the ending ! wow! Bernard C.
This movie will definitely be an Oscar nomination if not a multiple winner. Flawless performances by them both. You don't want to miss this one.
Love it - worth seeing!
