FUSE movie review : ALLIED
From Robert Zemeckis, Academy Award-winning director of Forrest Gump, as well as Flight and Cast Away, comes an intense, seductive thriller starring Oscar winners Brad Pitt (World War Z, Inglorious Bastards) and Marion Cotillard (Assassin’s Creed, Two Days, One Night).
Set against the backdrop of World War II in French Morocco, Pitt and Cotillard play two of the world’s deadliest spies who fall in love while undercover on enemy lines. It is Casablanca, 1942. Allied counter intelligence agent Max (Pitt) assumes the identity of husband to famous French resistance spy, Marianne (Cotillard), who is also working undercover. The pair effortlessly poses as a married couple while covertly colluding to assassinate a German diplomat.
After the dangerous North African mission is over, they renounce their espionage days, marry and relocate to lead a quieter life in England. The pressures of war threaten their relationship as evidence comes to light that Marianne may be secretly conspiring with the enemy. When Max learns his wife is likely a Nazi spy, he has only 72-hours to prove her innocence and save his family before he has to do the unthinkable.
The intricately woven story by Zemeckis of two star-crossed lovers entangled in enemy lines revisits the romantic espionage genre of eras gone with an immensely mesmerizing and smouldering chemistry from Pitt and Cotillard. Be swept up in the intense race against time that tests the limits of one man’s love for his family against that of his country in Allied.
Allied is available to own 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ & DVD from 26 April 2017.
You’ll find all this title at JB HiFi, online or at all good DVD outlets.
