Allied review – Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard fail to find Blitz spirit

Robert Zemeckis lacks his usual fizz in this tourist visit to a heritage-wartime past, in which Pitt and Cotillard look and act like strangers

A lot of prerelease gossip has attended this plonkingly slow and clonkingly laborious wartime thriller starring Brad Pitt as dashing Canadian airman Max Vatan and Marion Cotillard as Marianne Beausejour, the lissom French spy with whom he falls in love. As Pitts marriage collapsed in the real world, social media buzzed impertinently about the Allied stars relationship. But in this film, there is no chemistry, no romantic fusion, no Bradion, no Mariobrad. Their screen passion bursts forth like a cold wet teabag falling out of a mug that you have upended over the kitchen sink and dont much feel like washing up. Their rapport fizzes like a quarter-inch of bin juice left after you have taken the rubbish out.
