After paired together and succeeding in deadly assassination attempt in 1942 Morocco, an officer (Brad Pitt) is informed by his superiors that his Resistance member and now wife (Marion Cotillard) is a turncoat and he himself has been charged with her execution. Despite its dumbed down trailer which drew comparisons to Mr. and Mrs Smith, Robert Zemeckis' Allied is a quiet spy thriller drawn from a substantial Steven Knight script. Pitt however is way too old for the role and appears creepy made to play a character ostensibly 30 or so years younger.
