#MovieReview: "Allied"


So, getting the gossip out of the way, if you're married to Brad Pitt, don't send him off to make any movies where his character has a love interest and they get married... All's fair in love and war in Allied.

This World War II period piece stars Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard.

From Google:

"The story of intelligence officer Max Vatan, who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war."




So there are two things wrong with what could have been a very compelling movie based on a love story and suspenseful intrigue...

They bungled the love story (I sensed zero chemistry between the two leads), and the suspenseful intrigue was similarly bungled.

WATCH IF YOU'RE BORED I guess. This would have been awesome had it been made as an HBO limited series.

QBF Rating: 3.0/5

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
