Allied – The STiXXclusive Review

Trust is one of the biggest characteristics that always seems to see itself broken by other people, but it’s the one thing that makes or breaks relationships with people. We’re exposing ourselves and leaving all things vulnerable hoping that people accept us and are willing to accept us for who we are. That hope that they don’t screw us over and lead us astray, or to stab us in the back. There’s a bond that isn’t supposed to be breached by anyone, but yet it’s a constant topic in every medium imaginable, and thus here we are with this World War II romantic yet dramatic piece of work. Personally, I don’t understand why Hollywood loves World War II so much, but seeing as there are a million stories to be told surrounding the same damn event, why not milk it for what it’s worth, right?

When you would go to literal hell and back to prove the identity of someone to be false when everyone says it’s true, that’s a testament to your love of that individual, and this movie was a constant guessing game as to who was the liar and who was innocent in this situation. The way that I would describe this movie is that you could pretty much call it predictable as it moved forward, because there wasn’t anything new that was presented, except there was a lot of tension that was utilized through silence where you thought something was gonna happen, but it didn’t. The thing about spies is that your job is to play a part and blend in with your surroundings for your objected mission, but what happens when the mission has been completed? The role is supposed to be absolved, but you’ll never know if the person you love the most is holding up their end of the bargain. They can go days, months, and years living a façade and you’ll find out in the worst way where you’ll have to choose between life & death. This movie may not be that deep, but that’s just my perception because it does bring up the question on who you can trust.

I liked it, but at the same time it bored me because where there were moments of shock and a little twist, it wasn’t as major, and like I said before, you could pretty much predict the end of it all as the story plays out. Enough war time movies unless they’re really compelling. You would swear the Wars happened 20 years ago, the way they love making these movies. It’s one reason why I’ve really had a tendency to shy away from watching them, but alas, here we are. Wait for it to come out on Netflix or something. Watching it in a theatre may just waste your time. But for now, this is my opinion, this is my review

That’s My Word & It STiXX
