    Two spies find love in Casablanca, Morocco in 1942. Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) and mysterious and beautiful Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard) unite to assassinate the German ambassador in Morocco. Their "fake" marriage inspires love and romance. Pitt and Coltillard have a strong chemistry in ALLIED. Both have never looked better. Pitt as the quiet man knowing that wartime romances between spies have no future. ALLIED is a beautifully filmed period piece that takes back to wartime Morocco and England. One amazing scene has Max and Marianne finally giving into their passions in a car during a desert sandstorm. It's filmed in an amazing way. Max and Marianne settle into domestic bliss in London as Max works in the war offices. Real heart wrenching drama begins when Max is told Marianne is suspected of being a spy (a spy for the Germans). In the world of spy romances, the betrayed lover is required to kill his guilty partner. Max has hours to prove she is innocent and the agonizing journey begins. ALLIED is certain a pleasant film and better than I expected. The chemistry between our stars adds to the excitement as we hope their love is real and will survive the war. It's a beautiful film to look at with the authentic period clothes and setting. The last act is full of suspense and mystery and Marianne's story unravels. Pitt and Cotillard light up the screen.

    "Classically" well done -- Entertaining

    Posted

    This movie reminded me of those fun and purely entertaining classics of the likes of Casablanca, or The English Patient. Well acted, the scenes are painted in romance, plenty suspenseful, continuous action, but does well to stay character driven. Very classically made with an emphasis on style-action over bang-bang-action. Director, Robert Zemeckis, known for excellent works such as Forest Gump, Cast Away, has made another classic in this one --- a very refreshing movie release amidst the decades of cookie cutter studio-driven shoot-em-up, comic book-based drones. WWII era movies will never get old -- it's a beloved era gone. This movie is fun, entertaining but also adds the often overlooked element in today's movies: Smart

    Zemeckis does it again

    The trailers werent great, the reviews were moderate, but again Zemeckis overachieves even when he's already proven himself to be one of the most consistent director for years now. What makes this movie uniquely interesting is just the moral confusion of Brad Pitt's character. We, like him, honestly dont know really what we would do in this situation (wont spoil what the situation is). It's simple yet complex. Easy to follow when in lesser hands the film could have been very confusing. Come to think its VERY Hitchockian actually. Great films.

    A Truly Unseen Gem...

    This Brad Pitt War movie flew under the radar which is a shame because it ranks up there on his best list versus worst. Everything about the movie works from cinematography, acting, script, etc. I think it just unfortunately suffered from miss handling of the marketing which featured it as more of a return to Mr. and Mrs. Smith only set during World War II when in fact there is a whole lot more going on and it is truly a good spy/romance/war movie to watch and enjoy!

    Well Done Unsentimental WWII Drama

    Allied is an example Brad Pitt in all his romantic glory. He and Marion Cotillard are well cast in this WWII drama of espionage, romance and drama. The story has a surprising twist which elevates the movie from being a sentimental romance to an exceptional drama. The costumes and musical score are beautifully mid-Forties vintage. All in all, this was an enjoyable movie that I've seen more than once. Nice to have Brad Pitt back in this vintage scene doing what he does best: romantic leading man.

    1st 4K movie

    Bought an Xbox One S and was excited to see a 4K movie. I could tell the difference right from the start. That being said, I don't think the $30 price mark for some of these movies is worth it. I am still watching my other blurays and enjoying them on my HDTV just as well at a much cheaper price. I'm sure the prices will drop and I will continue to buy more 4K movies. The movie itself is a little slow and I expected something a little faster pace. That is why I gave it 3 out of 5.

    Brad Pitt plays a British Agent sent to French Morocco to eliminate the German Ambassador. Pitt is aided by a female French Resistant Fighter. During the movie the two agents fall in love and they return to London where they settle down to married life while the war rages on. One day Pitt is told by British Intelligence that his wife may be a German Spy. Pitt is ordered to set a trap to determine if his wife is a spy. The ending is high octane action and is very exciting.
