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 !!!!!!!!

Very well acted and convincing.

The story takes far to long to get going and when it finally does get going what little story there is is very predictable and dull. Several scenes were ruined by horrible and absolutely unnecessary usage of cgi. The "romance" was robotic and boring.

If you'd like to see the most boring / unromantic sex scene of your life that's wrapped up in a terrible cgi sandstorm then you're in for a treat. If that doesn't sound like what you're looking for then maybe give this one a miss.

A spy will always be a spy! Right up to the end I wondered why this women stayed with her Husband who was never really around. No wonder she shot herself at the end!.

What a boring boondoggle. This movie certainly did not help Brad Pitt's career. Female lead Academy Award winner perhaps from another movie? Ejected disc prior to ending.

A pretty good film. At times it doesn't seem to know if it wants to be serious romantic/spy thriller film or a plain action film. I felt at times that some of the gratuitous Dick Tracy-type shootouts where the two protagonists could actually outshoot more than a dozen fully armed soldiers or cops without a scratch were added to satisfy the part of the audience that came to see a shoot 'em up film. I would rather the producers had put more efforts into deepening the character development.

This tragic tale of lovers "in a dangerous time" is well acted and worthy of viewing. The leads lead well and the story seems plausible in a period of wartime betrayal and paranoia. I'd like to recommend it to my octogenarian father who was in the RAF, however these days he much prefers stories with happy endings. Who can blame him.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It's a movie set in WWII partly during a bombing raid on London. Shootings. Grenade explosions. War-damaged people.

Sexual Content: A couple of sex scenes, brief nudity, and suggested sexual acts.

Violence: Plenty of killings by guns, mostly. Not gory, for the most part.
