The Tourist, a film about an American tourist in Venice who finds himself caught in the midst of a manhunt, is just another addition to the lengthy list of unoriginal, formulaic, yet dimly amusing, films. I mean, everything about this movie from the trite story and  cliché romance, to the unbearably dumb twist ending was unnerving and made me wonder why? Why couldn’t they put a smidgen of effort into this slightly enjoyable film? I guess what it boils down to is; this film is terrible and isn’t worth your time or money, even though there were some pleasant bits.

Verdict: Forget It
