Worst To Best: Johnny Depp

The Tourist (2011)

The Film: The English-language debut of director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (The Lives Of Others).

Sadly, The Tourist fails to replicate the German filmmaker’s previous success. Depp stars as a maths teacher who falls for Angelina Jolie in Venice, and gets drawn into a convoluted plot that’s basically an uninspired reheating of 2005 French flick Anthony Zimmer.

Depp Dynamite: True, Depp looks somewhat bored in some of the less dramatic scenes, but he strikes up a decent rapport with Jolie, and goes at the action scenes with typical gumption. Shame the film wasn’t better.
