Consensus: The scenery and the stars are undeniably beautiful, but they can't make up for The Tourist's slow, muddled plot, or the lack of chemistry between Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie.

Richard Roeper

"Sure, the plot is preposterous, but the two stars look great, the scenery is spectacular and the supporting cast is a hoot."

In a year of craptaculars, The Tourist deserves burial at the bottom of the 2010 dung heap.

Jolie! Depp! Romantic locations! Intrigue! Some movies sound too good to be true. The Tourist is one of them.

A creaking "star vehicle" for two stars who should have known better, and maybe had a little chemistry.

Dana Stevens

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.

The Tourist merely asks you to sit back and enjoy the ride, and then makes that task a breeze.

Jeff Beck

[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.

Angie Jolie and Johnny Depp in sort of a homage to the adventure/intrigue film jaunts of the late 60s. Venice is the postcard backdrop, along with snazzy… More

"The Tourist" is a very poor movie. Of course, it represents Hollywood at it's worst. The movie was never intended to have any value.… More
