Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Romantic - Despite the action-leaning angle of the advertising, this is a more slowly paced dramatic thriller with a more intimate scale than the WWII-era setting would imply. Fans of leads Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard will enjoy this tightly focused showcase for the two of them. Violence, language, sexual content, and adult themes make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good More a spy thriller than a traditional "war film”... ...two hours of solid entertainment with attractive leads, exotic locations, and large dollops of romance and suspense... Allied isn't a great film, but it's made with sufficient care and skill that it deserves to be seen.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent While it may not quite be the modern-day "Casablanca,” it is nevertheless a grandly entertaining stab at old-fashioned storytelling....buoyed by smart and stylish filmmaking, a good performance by Brad Pitt and an even better one from Marion Cotillard.

USA Today Full Review
Average Zemeckis keeps the main mystery taut until the end, though not enough is seeded in the movie's first half, and the watchable war-torn romance of the beginning falls apart gradually. Unfortunately, unlike its two main characters, those key aspects never marry to become an Allied unit.

NY Post Full Review
Average "Allied” is one of those not-so-good movies that I enjoyed for the lushness of it all, the immaculate nightclubs and the buzzing air raids. ..."Allied” is slow-footed and tepid, its plot twists dopey and soapy. I was rooting for things to get interesting, but I would have settled for a few surprises.
