    If Elise and Frank are opaque to each other, they're opaque for a reason, as, sadly, lovers sometimes are. (Come to think of it, this picture has more in common with "The Lives of Others" than you might expect.)

    The Tourist is less likely to be remembered for its cat-and-mouse machinations than for the beautiful people carrying them out.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    An awkward jumble of half-assed thriller and lumbering romantic comedy, less competent by a wide margin than "The Lives of Others." It's also a whole lot sillier, though not in a good way.

    As preposterous wannabe Hitchcockian thrillers go, this one is adequate.

  • Pam Grady

    A throwback to classic movies like Charade and North by Northwest where beautiful, sophisticated people answer life-threatening danger with bon mots and ingenuity.

    The pitch is enough to make you swoon, but the movie itself is curiously limp.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    This is a pale simulacrum of those high-style travel-porn thrillers of the '60s and '70s, which only serves to remind us that those aren't as easy to pull off as they look, and also that maybe they weren't so great in the first place. Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    A would-be light thriller that's so deficient in the genre's essentials - such as witty dialogue, intriguing characters and surprising yet credible plot turns - that you're embarrassed for everyone involved.

  • Lou Lumenick

    In the dud thriller The Tourist, Jolie basically plays an overdressed, humorless live-action version of Jessica Rabbit, running around Venice dodging hired killers.

    What should have sizzled fizzles.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    There is a moment in The Tourist when Johnny Depp turns to Angelina Jolie and asks "Why is all this happening?" It's a question moviegoers will be asking themselves as well.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Jolie never ignites, and neither does the movie. Mr. Depp doesn't fare better with a role that forces him to play meek and disappointingly mild, despite a few screenwriter-supplied tics.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    An alarmingly charmless attempt to evoke the elegant romance and jaunty, jet-setting intrigue of the aforementioned titles, The Tourist is notable for the total absence of movie-star heat that movie stars are paid unseemly sums to radiate.

    A slow and silly action-comedy romantic-thriller.

    Star power can cover up a multitude of shortcomings in a film. Turns out stupidity isn't one of them.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    A facsimile of a masquerade of a gloss on "Charade," and on all the lesser cinematic charades that followed in the wake of director Stanley Donen's 1963 picture.

  • Roger Ebert

    There's a way to make a movie like The Tourist, but Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck doesn't find that way.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The Tourist isn't a debacle, but it's a caper that's fatally low on carbonation.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The script piles the preposterous on top of the absurd and the film's thin charms dissipate, revealing the creaking movie star contraption underneath.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    von Donnersmarck's meat-and-potatoes direction makes The Tourist astonishingly lifeless and awkward, reducing two of the world's biggest movie stars to something akin to shy, pimply teenagers on their first date.

    Without sizzle or thrills, The Tourist becomes as sluggish and rank as the Venice waterways.

    A different kind of surveillance thriller - an expensive, star-gazing Hollywood one.

  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The movie dies onscreen; it might be the best advertisement for avoiding the glories of Italy ever released by a Hollywood distributor.

  • Joe Neumaier

    Goes about its game so bloodlessly, the result is some of the most unexciting action and seduction sequences in recent memory.

    If you just want to look with admiration and Johnny and/or Angelina – and why wouldn't you? – this offers the full scenic tour, but it's one of those frustrating almost-good films which never really catches fire.

    Empire Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Like a beautifully tailored suit that starts to smell funny after a few minutes, this sumptuous but stultifying lark sets up a quasi-Hitchcockian intrigue between two strangers abroad, but smothers any thrills or sparks in a haze of self-regard.

  • John Anderson

    Cinema-as-shoplifting is okay, as long as you still get the feeling it's for a greater good. But that's something The Tourist is sorely missing.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The Critic's Code of Honor forbids me from explaining in detail why the storytelling is so inept, because I'd have to spoil the silly surprises. So I'll say only this: You can interpret the climax two ways, and both will probably infuriate you.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    To see Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in The Tourist is like watching a chemistry experiment gone horribly wrong.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Unfortunately, this is one of those movies with a twist ending that turns a character inside out, revealing earlier scenes to be essentially fraudulent and more or less invalidating one's emotional investment in the story. No one ever walked out of a Hitchcock movie feeling as cheated as this made me feel.

    There are all kinds of bad movies in the world, but it's really only stardom that can create the exact variety of cinematic abortion we find in The Tourist.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    It may be the only movie ever to feature a bad performance by Johnny Depp, one of the best actors working in films.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The film suffers from a severe lack of urgency and emotional engagement. You can't get involved in a movie in which the characters all seem to be harboring double identities.

  • Dana Stevens

    It's not so much the nonsensical nature of the plot that rankles; it's the movie's wrongheaded approach to the material.

    Slate Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Staggeringly misjudged in virtually every department, from the wannabe effervescent script to Johnny Depp's dopey hairdo.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This woefully botched mystery-adventure-thriller-caper-romance-comedy, or whatever it was meant to be, is no fun at all.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    In a year of craptaculars, The Tourist deserves burial at the bottom of the 2010 dung heap. It offers talented people trapped in creative inertia. A microscope and a search party could not discover any trace of chemistry between Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie.
