Allied

Allied is an entertaining piece of fluff that has arrived just in time for the holidays. We have seen it all before with better actors and better writing. Casablanca comes to mind. As a matter of fact the film begins in Casablanca and makes continuous reference to it throughout.

Of course Brad Pitt  and Marion Cotillard are movie stars of the first rank and are beautiful to behold. I have a theory that movie stars are our demigods of today and provide for us what the demigods of old provided for the ancient Greeks, which is not a bad thing, and in fact is a lot of fun.

Director Robert Zemeckis has provide us with a well structured film with a good story that is beautiful to look at. Marvelous piece of escapism. Highly recommend!

  1. “Entertaining piece of fluff” says it all. There are very mixed views out there on this film. The filming is great and the nostagia look is done well. Althought this is an action-packed espionage it has an ordinary script and unconvincing performances. In places the acting just felt fake.
