Bias Alert: I have always loved Pitt and Marion Cotillard. Pitt is predictable and safe with his selections of spy/war movies and Cotillard is absolutely gorgeous and talented, so great performances anyways. The romance aspect and the magnificent cinematography all gave the feels that I was watching a classic. Having said that, I just hate how the female is always portrayed as one that is constantly caught between sentiment and logical reasoning. I can understand from Cotillard’s perspective and the very obvious ending makes sense, but I still hate how tragic the love story is made out to be. It was almost too perfect given the circumstances and you can feel doom looming around the corner. I suppose that is why the suspense felt so real, despite guessing what is real and unreal throughout the film.

A very good story, I did not however sense a real attachment between the 2 main characters so in that sense it fell a little short for me, the female lead was superbly acted and was very credible. Enjoyed it immensely.

Ms. Cottilard is equal parts gorgeous and creepy - and that's a good thing as you're never really sure what or who's side she's on until the end of the movie.

Wonderful movie. Good acting, a story that keeps you wondering until the last moment. A war story, love story and a story of suspense. The first part was s bit slow but warmed up later. I plan to watch this again before I return the dvd.

slow start, nothing grabbed my attention, the characters were stilted, aloof. Did not finish the movie.

And to think I waited months for this 'turkey" to become available. Bad doesn't begin to describe how insufferably awful this movie was. Badly scripted, badly directed and produced and badly acted. Yech!

Boring and terribly acted !!!!!! Brad Pitt should stop acting in movies where he's "married" to a spy or he'll never stay married in real life !!!!!!!!
