I didn't know much about Allied other than it stared Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. I have tried to resist reading too many reviews about some movies. It is a nice element of surprise to go in feel like the story is fresh, sometimes the previews give the whole plot away. It is a romantic thriller set in the second world war, and my bestie and I quite enjoyed it. The story itself was quite simplistic and I liked that it just got into it straight away with minimal back story. I felt there was something special in the way the story was directed, keeping the two main characters the focus, without the distraction of too many extra characters.
I am going to give it a 3.5/5.
