Critics aren't being kind to The Tourist, a suspenseful vehicle for stars Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. With a Rotten Tomato rating of only 20%, most are decrying the absurd plot and wooden performances. One thing they can agree on, however, is the beauty of the Italian setting.
The film is attempting to bring Hitchcock-ian glamour and intrigue to the landscape with the impeccably turned-out Jolie sauntering from one location to the next. The sumptuous backdrops of the Venice Canals are doing all the work, it seems.
