Mr and Mrs Smith DVD - the one where Brangalina was created!
It was inevitable that a film staring two of the most sexiest actors on the planet was going to have some talking points but no one could have guessed exactly what when the two actors got together on set. I wanted to see this film for a long time as it had so much hype surrounding it and in the end I liked it but it's never going to be a classic and it wasn't that good really if you compare it to, what I think is a similar film, True Lies with Arnie and Jamie Lee Curtis which is much more cleverer and funnier but hey, it was fun to watch now and again.
Anyway, the film features Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and their characters are John Smith and Jane Smith, very inventive! They are married but are going through some marriage problems which we see in a scene at the therapists office. Unbeknowst to each of them, they are both trained lethal assassins and work for different agencies but when a hit goes wrong they are both assigned a new target, each other. What follows is basically lots of scenes of near misses, thrills, comedy and quite a lot of sex-appeal between the two characters. It's quite funny because it's all still played out in suburbia and in one scene they steal a Minivan and take that as they try to escape some assassins.
I really liked the character of Vince Vaughn who played Eddie who was their friend and the one who sort of egged them on. He's an assassin himself but doesn't want to take on the job of killing either of them.
The action scenes are good, Angelina in my opinion has always been good at action scenes and delivers them well. Brad is a major crush of mine so I think he looks good in anything he does and am willing to forgive him for some of the more cheesier scenes in this film.
The DVD is rated 15 as it contains moderate sex and violence. The special features include commentaries, deleted scenes, making a scene and trailers and the film runs for approximately 115 minutes.
