Ep #089 Allied with Stephanie and Emma From The Mighty Foof Podcast
It’s Episode 89! Ems and Stephanie from The Mighty Foof join Flixwatcher to review the 2016 Robert Zemeckis film Allied starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard.
Allied pitches itself as a wartime spy thriller early on but quickly descends into dreary wartime melodrama, not even the wonderful Marion Cotillard can save this cumbersome disappointment.
On paper this should have been so much more, but unintentional comedy moments (sex in a sandstorm) and complete lack of passion between Pitt and Cotillard make it not only disappointing but a bit embarrassing for all involved.
There isn’t enough spying or action to make it the wartime thriller it thinks it might be and the romance unconvincing. There are some highlights, the costumes deserved its lone Academy Award nomination and the Casablanca scenes have some fun.
Allied surprisingly scores 3.47 (despite the low scores from Kobi). There really is no reason to watch this film four times though, once is more than enough if you manage to make it through its laborious run time of two hours and four minute run time.
