A review by KET class students, 12-13 years old

This film is about three spies who work for Charlie, a mysterious millionnaire who they have never met, and another man called Bosley. This time their mission is to save Knox and his special programme, but Knox had lied because he wanted to  find and kill Charlie. So, Charlie is in danger because Knox thinks that Charlie killed his father and now he wants to take revenge. The spies must protect Charlie and kill Knox, even if they think that he was nice. At the end, the spies kill Knox and they live to have a lot more incredible adventures!

The best parts of the film were the fight scenes, especially when the spies captured the skinny, slimy man near the beginning and the final fight with the three angels working together against evil.

We liked this film very much because it’s an adventure and action film and the special effects were great.

We recommend this film to everyone, especially those who love action, adventure and comedy. There are a lot of cool fighting scenes.

Happy watching!

Film Review: The Tourist

8 02 2011

Original title: The Tourist 

Language: English

Country: USA

Year: 2010

Genre: Dramatic, thriller

Cast: Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie


Frank Tupelo is a maths teacher going to Italy to forget his past. Elise, on the other hand, is a very mysterious woman who is followed by the international police. These completely different characters meet on a train to Venice.

Elise invites Frank in her suite once they arrive and there, he immediately gets involved in chases, dangerous situations and blind dates.

We discover that Elise is looking for her husband whom she never sees because he’s an outlaw and, as a result of his own crime, Russian gangsters, the police and many others are in desperate need to find her.

And for those who know some famous Italian actors, it will be a laugh seeing Christian De Sica as the corrupt police inspector or Raoul Bova as the latin-lover.

Soon we will discover who is really the man going to the married couple appointments and the truth will be absolutely unexpected and shocking!

Most critics said that Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp weren’t properly matched, but I find them a perfect pair, especially acting in these two peculiar roles. The comparisons between Paris and Venice in the film were fantastic and I found it had a bit of everything, from funny scenes to really breathtaking ones.
