Advantages: Good acting, amazing scenery and a brillant twist.
Disadvantages: Can not find any other than after watching it once you already know the twist for next time.
A very good film that me and mum watched over and over again. We firstly had borrowed it of a friend with ever intention of watching it once and giving it back with no real thought about it after we had watched it. Suprised to say we have just brought a copy for ourselves with ever intention of watching it many times in the future.
Firstly the acting was very good from all parts. It was nice to see Johhny Depp go back to a role similar to his character in sleepy hollow. A nice change from the Jack Sparrow like charcters as he plays a bumbling clueles tourist well. Also Jolie was good acting as always but has stuck to her comfort zone similar to that of her characters in Wanted and Mr and Mrs Smith. Also contained some very good supporting actors such as a few of the policeman from Scotland yard and also a certain suspect that pops up more than once.
The setting of the film gives an atmosphere that would not be the same set anywhere else. The chase scene that is i boats down the canals would not be the same if it were on rollerblades in Australia (first thing that popped in my head honestly).
The main success of the movie is the complete twist at the end. It is one I never saw coming although I like to not try to hard to work out the mysteries in films. I am sure somebody who really wanted to know the twist might have picked up on the subtle hints throughtout the film but I think most will have a pleasent surpise at the end.
A very good film overall, excitment will stop any boredom whilst watching it and a must for any body who likes Italy.
Summary: Venice, Johnny Depp, Boat chases and a suprise twist what more could you want.
