American tourist Frank (Johnny Depp) meets a mysterious beauty who drags him into a dangerous world of intrigue and espionage while traveling through Europe in director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's paranoid thriller. When Frank met Elise (Angelina Jolie) on the train, he thought it was a chance encounter. Little did Frank realize it was all part of a much bigger plan, one that would soon find him dodging bullets through both the historic streets of Paris and the winding canals of Venice. Now, the faster Frank and Elise run, the more intense their romance grows. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Sure, the plot is preposterous, but the two stars look great, the scenery is spectacular and the supporting cast is a hoot.""
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"What should have sizzled fizzles."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"A silly inane story lacking strong characters and ay sense of adventure."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Overall an interesting and at times very gripping film, but one that perhaps could have done with taking a few more risks"
‑ James Luxford, The National
"The Tourist certainly looks fabulous - as befits the setting, the stars and the gorgeous costumes . The trouble is that Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's movie is far too elegant to break into a sweat ... The viewer's pulse doesn't quicken."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"In a year of craptaculars, The Tourist deserves burial at the bottom of the 2010 dung heap."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Jolie! Depp! Romantic locations! Intrigue! Some movies sound too good to be true. The Tourist is one of them."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"A creaking "star vehicle" for two stars who should have known better, and maybe had a little chemistry."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"It's a self-conscious attempt at a Hollywood caper with the mix of comedy, romance and conspiracy watered down to the point where you can see straight through it."
‑ Stella Papamichael, Digital Spy
"Something has gone really, really wrong here."
‑ Dave White,
"As for Depp, his character makes so little sense that he can hardly be blamed for blinking his way through the movie with an expression of blank-faced puzzlement that recalls Dan Quayle in the 1988 vice-presidential debate."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"The Tourist merely asks you to sit back and enjoy the ride, and then makes that task a breeze."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"[The Tourist] is very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable from the very start and doesn't let up until the screen goes black, which is something that very few films are able to pull off nowadays."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Depp and Jolie together create a chemical black hole. They couldn't produce sparks with dry hair and a comb."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"I'm afraid the stars' vacation videos are probably more interesting than this poorly handled mistaken-identity caper, which isn't funny enough to be a comedy or dramatic enough to be a thriller."
‑ Eric Melin,
