There isn’t much spark in the marriage between John and Jane Smith (Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie)… until they discover that they’re both secret agents targeted to kill each other. The man behind The Bourne Identity (2002) delivers another fast-paced action movie, featuring thrilling shootouts, a violent car chase, the comedy of Vince Vaughn, and the charming pairing of Brangelina; this project was the moment when they fell for each other in real life. Don’t expect any credibility, but it sure is fun watching this couple vent their problems using hi-tech guns and martial arts fighting.
