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.
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 However, Zemeckis’ gimmicks seemed to be outdated and didn’t impress the people.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 Not There?
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.
