Allied is a fresh take on a second world war spy thriller. In this case, a male and female agent team up for the British Government to assassinate a Nazi sympathizer, and they fall in love while on the assignment.
The movie has a bit of everything – suspense, intrigue, drama, romance and even some action. I can’t recall any humor, but it they were serious times in Europe, during the war. That tone rang true in Brad Pitt’s character, he barely cracked smile the whole movie. His partner, and later wife, Marion Cotillard, did a superb job in keeping us guessing about her true identity.
Even with the spies and lies, the plot is easy to follow. Like a good novel, the tension builds throughout the movie. When it finally breaks in the end you’ll be reaching for a tissue.
Cathryn and both enjoyed the movie and give it an 8 and 9 respectively.
