Director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck Writer/s Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Christopher McQuarrie, Julian Fellows
Starring Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Paul Bettany, Timothy Dalton
Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A woman who is under surveilance, selects a man at random on a train to be a decoy, to put the police and the villains on her trail off the scent in their search for her partner. However, the man proves to be more than just cannon fodder as events progress.
Content The female star moves about as if being royalty, and the rest of the cast follow at a respectful distance. There is very moderate violence and one dramatic event involving snipers.
A View This is one of those films that I watched so that you don’t have to and once again proves that just having beautiful people amongst the cast does not guarantee a successful movie. It felt as if they were making it up as they went along.
