Consensus: Allied has its moments, but doesn't quite achieve epic wartime romance status -- a disappointment made more profound by the dazzling talent assembled on either side of the camera.

Cotillard is the sole bright spot, and even she risks being upstaged by her fantastic wardrobe.

Zemeckis ... seems uncertain whether to treat the tale as a wrenching saga of split loyalties or as a glamorous jaunt. Having gathered all the ingredients for derring-do, he forgets to turn up the heat, and the derring never does.

Zemeckis has said in interviews that Hollywood doesn't make this kind of movie anymore. Too true. And there's an obvious reason why.

Zemeckis is a master of the big, broad Oscar-bait drama, and he makes the most of a well-constructed screenplay by Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises)

What a handsome empty shell of a movie Allied is. Despite the star power of Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, their scenes together fail to ignite even a glimmer of a spark.

The film seem(s) top-heavy, action wise, and a bit awkward.

Zemeckis's formidably staunch and precise technique, itself a nostalgic vestige of classic Hollywood movies, seals up the movie's joints and keeps the air of life out; it's a suffocated, lifeless adventure.

Its story and dialogue are so straightforward and comforting that even when you think you can hear the next beat coming-and you will-the finale still comes as a cathartic surprise.

There's no denying the pair's dazzling old Hollywood star power is well-suited to a film clearly in love with the era.
