It’s hard to figure out what exactly went wrong with Allied, as by the time the climax rolled around I wasn’t at all invested into the question of whether Cotillard is or isn’t a spy, despite Zemeckis’s attempts to sprinkle in some Hitchcockian suspense. It’s well directed, not too long, and lavishly produced. Yet, it never quite comes together. If you go in with your expectations in check, you may be fine with it, but don’t expect a major contender or even something close to Pitt’s other WW2 adventures, Inglorious Basterds or Fury. It’s an okay film, but it should have been a great one.
