Allied is a very different kind of film than made in the past by director Robert Zemeckis. His usual style is very different than what Allied turns out to be. Not bad, just different. Allied is an exciting thrill ride that keeps the audience hooked. While it does take some time to get going to build the relationship between the leads, when things go down, they really go down. Allied houses some of the best twist and turns of the 2016 film year, but falls a little short in some scenes scripts and some character motivations. Still a good film, but not fantastic.

"Allied" is a movie which has everything except the two leads played by Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard who comes off as wooden characters and act if it they don't want to be in this movie. Director Robert Zemeckis is very good at re-creating the feel of World War 2, but the leads are a problem, keeping me from liking the movie.Also the screenplay looks more of a plot from a soap opera. Two spies join forces in Casablanca to take on Nazis in the city, but the fall in love and got married. they had a child, but that's not the end of it. In the movie, Pitt who played Max Vatan, was told to kill his wife because they figure that she is a spy. Cotillard plays Marianne Beausejour his wife who is a also a spy. Despite how great a movie when it comes to details including the night bombings of London which is my favorite in the movie. But as far as character development, this movie has stop short. The only compelling characters are a lesbian couple who should have been seen in more scenes. they're much better than the leads.
