SYNOPSIS
Allied is the story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Pitt), who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.
Verdict: A wartime love story sans romance. There`s much hype around the new release, Allied, starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. It is not much to do with the film itself, rather the alleged romance between its lead stars, resulting in the biggest celebrity divorce of 2016. Pitt and Cotillard were rumored to have taken their onscreen chemistry to the []... ...Read full review
The Gigli Effect, a phrase coined approximately 5 minutes ago (so go easy), is defined as that phenomenon in which a much-hyped movie tanks embarrassingly upon release primarily due to its stars domestic drama overwhelming everything else.

Similarly, Robert Zemeckis` Allied recounts the love-story of Max and Marianne in his signature sensitive style, mounted stylishly against a vintage backdrop. The movie has both intrigue of treason and the passion of the players. What works for it, is the filmmaker`s adept story-telling technique. And though the screen proceedings are dominated by just the two protagonists, the remarkable performances from Pitt and Cottilard keep you rivetted. ...Read full review
There is a lot of Casablanca in Allied down to the setting, the war, the spies, the Vichy and Resistance, the Germans, a piano, and the song, Le Marsailles, to be played at a crucial point. But where the 1942 film had its war loyalties clearly defined, the passage of time allows Allied to take its characters beyond WWII, while not asking too many questions about it either. ...Read full review
