Allied will be to Brad Pitt's relationship as Mr. and Mrs. Smith had been. You will be too busy thinking about his love life than the movie. In fact, you would rather be thinking about his love life than this movie. You'll get more satisfaction.

Not sure if I should've started this review with that. I don't really believe that it was the case. The movie is fine. Brad's love life isn't. Let's save that for the tabloids. Let's watch movies without that baggage.

Anyhow, the film would be better if you don't think about it.

But yes, this one is about a man who thinks his wife could be a Nazi. In simpler times, Hollywood would make these movies over and over again. A simple quick movie with some star caliber and a nice clean simple story.

It's a serviceable film. Neither good nor bad. Just a film to watch on an autumn day.

3 of 5 stars.
