The Tourist - A Witchly Review

The Tourist - Light and frothy, I enjoyed it as a whole.  Venice was stunning, the supporting players added the chemistry the stars ultimately lacked and the plot twist was solid. C+, but definately rentable...

Pros: Timothy Dalton and Paul Bettany in excellent co-starring turns.  Venice has never looked more beautiful.  Great afternoon popcorn film!

Cons: Though gorgeous, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie never lived up to the potential Hitchcockian flavour it could have had.

Pagan Content:  Stars two Pagan Icons in Johnny and Angie, but nothing in the film.
