“Allied” is a solid film with a solid cast and a solid director but doesn’t deliver a completely satisfying film. “Allied” is what I call a one timer. I definitely enjoyed it but it is no likely to be something that I would watch again. I like the way that film was shot. Pitt and Cotillard really look the parts from the makeup to their attire. There was alot of detail put into this production to capture the specific era.
Original Premise: Oscar winners Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard star as Max Vatan and Marianne Beauséjour, two of the world’s deadliest spies, who fall in love while undercover on a top-secret mission and marry during World War II. But when Max learns his wife may be secretly conspiring with the enemy, he has only 72 hours to prove her innocence and save his family before he must do the unthinkable.
The combo pack comes with a Blu-ray and UV/iTunes digital copy. The 1080p transfer works perfectly with the way the film is shot and the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is on point with the film’s score and dialogue. The special features consist of ten featurettes covering the entire production from the story to the costumes to the vehicles, music and much more.
