Not what you are looking for. No matter what.
If you saw the trailers and want to see an action flick with plenty of
gun play, explosions, and fights...not your movie.
If you wanted to see a movie about marriage and it's troubles...maybe.
If you wanted to see a good comedy about professional killing...steer
This movie is 2 hours long. a good one hour of it should be on the
deleted scenes reel. Instead of providing us with the bait assignment
getting his assignment from an unseen boss, either of whom is barely
mentioned again, we COULD have been given a coherent ending, instead of
"Hey,we just killed 50 of their (top?) storm troopers, bam, two years
later, it's as if nothing has happened, and apparently those companies
that were after us have just 'given up'". lost of holes, lots of poor
If you were looking for that action flick to start the summer off
with...don't bother. by the time you get to the bulk of the action, you
will probably have left the theater, thanks to boredom.
If you were looking for comedy of some sort, please, KNOW WHEN TO
laugh! this was a personal experience, yes, but it seemed every time
someone cocked a gun, some idiot started laughing. no, guns going
"click" isn't funny, shut up.
If you were looking for some sort of deep commentary about
marriage...this might be the film you are looking for. leave after the
first main fight scene between the two, the rest is probably not
something you care about..

romantic comedy disguised as an action movie, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” is a fun, summer popcorn movie that actually manages to get in a few humorous but truthful bits on relationships and marriage. Featuring two undeniably sexy stars, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” is one of those movies you don’t have to think about but instead can just sit back and let wash over you. Yet it’s not dumbed down. Fast-paced with just the right blend of genres, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” is surprisingly good. Before delving into an analysis of the film, I just want to make this quick point. This review will ignore the elephant standing in the middle of the room. If you're not sure what elephant I’m referring to, then you haven’t been reading the gossipy tabloid papers that seem to be on a mission of life and death importance trying to figure out what’s going on between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. That’s the elephant we’re just going to pretend doesn’t exist. Back to the movie. The plot’s fairly simple. Jane and John meet while down in Columbia where they’re both on assignment. Neither has a clue what the other one’s up to and after much alcohol and a night of what we can assume is passionate love-making, they become a couple. Fast forward a few months and now they’re Mr. and Mrs. Smith. He believes she handles computer problems for major companies; she believes he’s a big shot in construction. Fast forward even further and now they’ve been married five or six years and they’ve got problems, major relationship problems that necessitate visiting a marriage counselor. After being together for all those years, you’d think they would have figured out that something doesn’t add up. But no, neither figures out the other’s an assassin until they’re both sent out by their competing companies to take out the same target. The cat’s out of the bag and all bets are off – toss in your own cliché here – as those marital problems they were suffering from before suddenly look like small potatoes. Never forgetting it’s a romantic comedy at heart, the action sequences take over once Mr. and Mrs. discover what their partner really does for a living. Simon Kinberg’s script is saucy and engaging and director Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity”) adeptly handles the action and comedy. We don’t often get to see a man and woman engaged in an all-out brawl, but Liman lets the fight scene between Jolie and Pitt get as physical as possible without cutting away too much or cute camera tricks. And while it's a little unnerving to watch their hand-to-hand combat, it makes sense. She’s an assassin, why would her opponent need to hold back? Fighting, making love, clinched in each other’s embrace on the dance floor, verbally fencing, whatever the circumstance or scene, the pairing of Pitt and Jolie works. They physically match up. Jolie plays Mrs. Smith just as physically capable – and lethal – as Pitt does Mr. Smith. In fact, the female is actually the better of the two assassins. Her moves are planned out meticulously; her actions follow a logical path. He relies more on his instincts and isn’t as fast on his feet as his female counterpart. It’s refreshing to see a female character be allowed to get the upper hand mentally and physically on her male costar, especially in a movie where the leads are portraying professional killers. How good are Jolie and Pitt together onscreen? We’re talking serious chemistry here. I haven’t seen Brad Pitt look this sexy for at least a decade and Angelina Jolie is blazingly hot. The sparks are almost visible when the two face off in the film. And yes, believe anything you’ve heard about the sex scenes. While there’s very little actual flesh exposed, the heat generated during their more intimate moments is palpable. Vince Vaughn pops in as Brad Pitt’s best buddy and co-worker, providing a little comic relief whenever the movie slows down a skosh. The movie has funny bits but whenever Vaughn’s onscreen, the comedy is kicked up a few notches. Whenever his character’s riffing on John for being in a controlling marriage or defending the fact he still lives with his mom (the only woman he can trust), Vaughn delivers some of the biggest laughs in the movie – and even manages to steal a semi-pivotal scene from right underneath Pitt and Jolie. There are plot holes and a couple of things (don’t worry, this is entirely spoiler-free) don’t really add up, but the film’s not trying to perform the cinematic equivalent of brain surgery. “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” colors outside the lines, doesn’t take itself seriously, and manages to retain the same playful tone throughout the two hour running time. For my money, it’s one of the best times I’ve had at the movies all year..
Mr. & Mrs. Smith was wonderful..
Mr and Mrs Smith is just plain, boring, unrealistic and stupid
I went to this movie because the wife and kids wanted to see it and all
four of us wished he had seen something else instead. The first thing I
noted was that rather than PG-13, this piece of trash should be rated R
for violence (Unneccesary I might add), sexual situations and sexual
innuendo. I don't have a problem with R or even X rated movies, I go
see R all the time but I don't take 10 year olds and the theater was
full of 8-12 year olds who were all obviously bored and bewildered.
Want to see a movie along these lines worth watching? Rent "War of the
Roses" because this is nothing more than a take on that movie and a
poor take at that. The premise is ridiculous as two people who have
been married 6 years do not know that each is a hit person
(professional killer) for the others enemy. The characters are never
developed, its just "This is what you get, wam bam". ALL of the
characters in this movie are one dimensional. No depth whatsoever.
Ninety percent of this movie looks like its filmed with a blue filter.
The camera movement is extremely shaky and too close up most of the
time. The acting can only be described with one word "ATROCIOUS". Brad
Pitt must have gone to the Kevin Costner school of acting because once
again he plays..now get this...BRAD PITT! Angelina Jolie is her usual
self, lips and expressions, the acting's all the same. Vince Vaughn
brings a refreshing...ummm..nope sorry, his acting sucks as well. There
is scene after scene of Pitt and Jolie fighting off "Someone", I say
someone because we never find out what organizations they work for.
Only that they have offices in New York and apparently don't have names
and work against the FBI or some such nonsense. Anyway, they are
fighting all these enemy Ninja looking fighters and AMAZINGLY the
bullet proof vests they are wearing get hit dozens of times but the
unexposed parts like arms, legs, heads, shoulders, hands, necks etc do
not get a scratch. (OK, they do get a scratch but thats it). HOWEVER,
using their great skill with small arms, they kill many of the "enemy"
whatever they are. Some of the scenes are so unrealistic as to make you
wonder if someone actually had a vision for this movie or they just
made it up as they went along. For example, there is a chase scene near
the end, 3 bulletproof BMW's are chasing them in a stolen minivan (A
Dodge Caravan I think) and Pitt spends 15 minutes trying to take out
the bad guys while Jolie drives, he isn't having a whole lot of luck
and near the end of their conversations (They are divulging their
secrets to one another throughout the chase) Jolie slings the minivan
around and with a few shots from her handy dandy pistol causes both
remaining BMW's to blow up and do flips all over the highway. The best
I can do to sum this movie up would be STOOOOOOOOOOOPID! The final
action scene is taken DIRECTLY from the final scene of "Butch Cassidy
and the Sundance Kid" but rather than being shot up, Pitt and Jolie
massacre the guys who are after them killing EVERY SINGLE ONE of maybe
a dozen guys in the most idiotic slow motion action sequence in the
history of the movies. Other words to describe would be boring,
unrealistic, unbelievable (Hell even Batman was believable), poorly
shot, poorly directed, no vision, poor continuity, poor everything. I
recommend saving the money and waiting until this comes out on video,
then when it does, wait and see if you can find it at a dollar store or
flea market for a dollar or two. Recommendation: Don't waste your time
or your money. Pure garbage..
