Allied is one of those movies great for a simple night out or a short flight. Not when you’re looking for emotional wartime depiction.
I was of half a mind to skip writing a review for Allied. Reason being, I’m quite at a loss of what to say about it.
It’s such a safe production, you see. With nothing that’s very right or very wrong. The leads are great to look at, nothing they say or do invites controversy, and while the story has suspenseful moments of ambiguity, I seriously doubt the ending is going to truly surprise anyone. As for the sets, they are atmospheric and nostalgic, a vague reminder of grand wartime sagas from the previous century. But ground breaking? Awe inspiring? I think most viewers would say no.
In summary, I think the only fair thing to say about Allied is that it’s a decent watch. Be it in the cinema, via cable, or on a plane. You wouldn’t hate it, that’s impossible with a screen couple so attractive. But remember it? Again I doubt so. Down the road, it would be interesting how Allied eventually fare in the respective careers of the leads and director. One suspect, though, that it might just be brushed aside. There’s simply not very much to critique or review about it.
