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.

The movie starts in Morocco, where Brad Pitt's spy character is to meet Marion Cotillard's spy character in a club that could be the Cafe Americain, and you're just waiting for Rick and Ilsa to be seen in the background.

While you never forget that you're watching Pitt and Cotillard on screen, their chemistry works quite well, and Director Robert Zemeckis and the crew of this movie did an excellent job placing you in the time and place. The fashion, the music, and the environment that surrounds every scene makes you feel as though you are watching the story unfold in your mind as you are reading a book.

Backing it all up is a score from longtime Zemeckis collaborator Alan Silvestri that you don't realize is there until you watch the featurette about it and then rewatch some of the scenes again, only to discover that the music was there guiding you along the storyline the entire time.

This movie didn't make a tremendous splash when it was released in November 2016. It was in the Top 10 for three weeks, but it was overshadowed by the big-budget released at the time. Fortunately, the costume designer was recognized with an Oscar nomination, but most people have probably already forgotten the movie.

That's a shame, as Allied is worth watching. The benefit of watching it on Blu-ray is that you can then watch the featurettes that cover various aspects of the production, and then re-watch parts or all of the movie again to see what you might have missed.

This movie will not go down in the books of movie history as one of the greats, but even though it's no Casablanca, it has a more developed relationship between the leads and its ending is no less poignant. I think it's well worth watching!
