Allied is a Hollywood film directed by Robert Zemeckis. Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Jared Harris, Matthew Goode and Lizzy Caplan are in the cast. The film released in India on 6th January 2017.

Plot

During the World War II, the Royal Canadian Air Force Intelligence officer named Max Vatan was sent to Casablanca to kill the ambassador of Germany. French Resistance fighter named Marianne Beausejour, accompanies him. Both of them act as a married couple and start their mission. However, during the course of their mission, they fall in love and enter the wedlock. Marianne delivers a baby girl, Anna. In a couple of years, Max comes to know that real Marianne was dead and his wife is suspected to be a German spy. Max is ordered by his superiors to supply a false intelligence at home. If Marianne picks it and passes on the information, she should be killed, order the higher officials. But Max plans differently. He went in search of a friend of Marianne. Max meets a pilot called George Kavanagh. He shows his wife’s photo and tries to gain information about her from him. What did he reply? Is she a spy? Did their married life continued happily? Watch the rest on the silver screen.

Star Performance

When we see the performances, all the stars are the super actors and there are no flaws in the performances. But, the age old story could not meet the expectations of the audiences.

Analysis

Robert Zemeckis, the director who is popular for his films in the 80s and 90s, had chosen an old script and tried to make it fresh. However, Zemeckis’ gimmicks seemed to be outdated and didn’t impress the people.

What’s There?

  • CGI effects
  • Costumes and the sets

What’s Not There?

  • No chemistry between Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt
  • Predictable twists

Verdict

Although Allied tries to take us back to 1940’s, there is no soul in the story. The director hadn’t met the expectations of the people. However, it can be watched once.
