Allied isn't quite the Oscar lock that we were hoping.
Review by Matt CummingsThere's a moment in Director Robert Zemeckis' Allied when Marion Cotillard's character turns to husband-to-be Brad Pitt and utters, "I keep the emotions real. That's why it works." Sadly, Zemeckis fails to listen to his own script, crafting a fairly dull spy thriller that really isn't all that thrilling, or tense, and generates exactly zero heat between the couple or even in its final scene.
