The Tourist, Movie Review

I loved this movie on many levels.

First, it was very much like the old Alfred Hitchock movies in that you never were quite sure what was happening--and it had a great surprise ending.

Johnny Depp was his usual wonderful self. He's one of the best actors around. He really gets into his characters, he's not just Johnny Depp, he's someone new in each movie.

Angelina Jolie is not one of my favorite actresses, but she did a good job in this one. Her wardrobe added to the '40s effect--but no matter what she wears, she's still gorgeious.

The movie reminded me a lot of a '40s movie with better acting and special effects.

There was NO bad language, none. It shows that a movie can be plenty exciting, this one was definitely a thriller with lots of action without all the language.

The scenery was gorgeous, it's all set in Venice. Absolutely no car chases, instead there were plenty of boat chases.

The Tourist is not getting the praise it deserves. I recommend it highly and if you get a chance do see it.

No bad language? Now that is my kind of movie.

I must admit that I have not read any of your books, I am not a "mystery" reader anymore, but I certainly am familiar with most writers, as I check them out to library patrons every day.

Merry Christmas.

Hope you are above water.
