Mr. and Mrs. Smith
 
Director: Doug Liman
Cast: Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Adam Brody, Vince Vaughn, Angela Bassett
Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence, intese action, sexual content and brief strong language
Running Time: 115 min.
 
Yawn! No, its not boring, I'm just exhausted trying to keep up with the action. The best action film I've seen in quite some time. It has many different aspects that, put-together, form and exhilerating adventure into a married couples' life. Well, they're not a typical married couple, but they are assasans, and that has proved to be way better.
 
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are awesome casting partners for these roles. Their chemistry is amazing, not once did I feel like they were having to "cheese" their way through the filming.
 
The two characters evolve from being independant killers into sharing the fighing ability when they get trapped in a housewares department store, and are forced to fend off an entourage of operatives. Long story short, the both of them are badasses with whatever weapons that they are using, from knives to bazookas, and shotguns to cars, they wipe-out the enemy with little hesitation and waivering.
 
Mr. and Mrs. Smith is definately my biggest sleeper. Leading up to it, and reading about the plot and everything, I sincerely believed that I would be disappointed. Let me tell you what, this movie is worth every bit of the ridiculously high-priced tickets. The movie is packed to the brim with excitement and fun, the whole way through. I definately hope that there is a sequal.
 
Good Points:
-Character chemistry is complete
-Plot and story development are thorough
-Pitt and Jolie are the epitome of cool in this movie
 
Bad Points:
-mini-vans are the choice vehicle for trained killers
-Angelina Jolie(personal vendetta)
 
Rating: 8.5/10
