Despite Johnny Depp's numerous past roles, he is once again reborn and believable as an awkward math teacher, named Frank, on vacation in Italy. His humor, wit and character growth match the conflicted, heavy-hearted character Elise, that Jolie plays, very well. She is classy and alluring, and he is overwhelmed, over-matched and stubborn. The two combine to rip apart Venice in many threatening situations, including Depp running on semi-circular roof tile in his pajamas.
Twists and turns riddle the plot with unknowns that leave the audience guessing until the end of the flick. The Tourist is moving, suspenseful, funny and most importantly fun.
