When it’s over, the film suffered from a lack of chemistry between Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. Jolie plays the beautiful mysterious woman who meets a tourist, played by Depp, on a train to Venice, Italy, and what follows is a series of mistaken identity with Interpol and the Russian Mafia hot on their heels. Although Jolie and Depp played their parts adequately, they lacked that “something” that “spark” that would’ve made their romance more grand, more believable. With all the beautiful scenery, elegant costumes, and extravagant decor, it’s a shame their relationship on screen couldn’t match the grandness of the production. A reunion with Jolie and Clive Owen (they last starred together in Beyond Borders) would have been a better casting choice; as also, Depp and Kate Beckingsale or Depp and Charlize Theron.
My rating: 2.5 out of 5
