Starring Angela Jolie, it reminded me of her previous outing, Salt, without the huge stunts and effects of that movie. Johnny Depp is also a very watchable actor.
One of my favourite things about this flick was the setting. Most movies use Venice, Italy as a backdrop, but The Tourist gives a great view of this magnificent place. The city is just gorgeous.
All in all, I would not say that The Tourist is the total waste of time most of its reviewers declare it to be.
