#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
