It's great to look at, but it doesn't seem to know if it's a romance or a serious drama. Because dramatically, it's not nail biting enough to be convincing. There's very little chemistry between the... Read more two leads, which doesn't help, and Brad Pitt is just bad. It's entertaining enough, but it should have been much more exciting to pull you into the story.
In short, dreadful. Brad Pitt, now in his 50's, looks like a like a kind of waxworks figurine, all shiny and wooden, with acting to match unfortunately (nothing new there). The French woman (whatever... Read more her name) was much better but not sufficiently so to save this film. The Germans, as one might imagine, are portrayed as maniacal idiots. The whole crap-pile was just absurdly improbable from start to finish. If you see this movie coming; run!
The film's premise sounded great, and it had a promising start. Believable scenes and credible lead characters which were built up as very clever agents. Which leaves you wondering did someone else... Read more write the latter half of the film? which contained some highly improbable scenarios, and required us to believe the main characters had somehow misplaced their former intelligence.
Beautiful looking period piece which could have been better had there been more a reason to care for the characters. Still not a bad watch but I doubt it will be remembered.
