The movie The Tourist stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. Itís a mystery, romance and action film.
Angelina Jolie plays as Elise, who meets her long-lost love Alexander Pierce after a long journey. Alexander owes money to a man named Shaw, who he borrowed from and never paid him back. Elise is a very independent young woman, helping Alexander not get caught in any way possible. She is a double agent but turning her back on her work for the one she loves.
Elise receives letters signed "AP" (Alexander Pierce); within the letters are specific instructions she must follow in order to meet Alexander once again.
Meanwhile, Johnny Depp plays Frank, a tourist riding a train to Venice. He runs into Elise on the train and sets him up by making the police believe it is Alexander Pierce.
Shaw and his crew fail to capture Alexander Pierce and Frank so they all are free in the end. I thought the story line was well played out and I liked the movie but not as much. It was very predictable, but Venice, the setting of the movie, featured beautiful scenery.
