Johnny Depp’s acting career spans many decades. The actor has been a household name in Hollywood for many decades. He has starred in many memorable films like the Pirates of the Caribbean series and in some less-known ones like Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The Tourist is one of Depp’s less-known but perhaps more underrated films. It can be viewed now on Amazon Prime. The film Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck directed is worth a look, considering Johnny’s solid performance despite the muddled plot.
The Tourist was released in 2010 and starred Depp, Angelina Jolie, Paul Bettany, and Paul Bettany. He plays a tourist from America who escapes to Italy to heal his broken heart. He meets Elise, a woman who quickly drags him into a complex heist plot by some of Europe’s most dangerous gangsters.

The film may be viewed by modern American audiences and remind them of Spider-Man Far From Home. It doesn’t treat its European setting as a real place; instead, like most Hollywood movies, it treats it more like a vacation spot. The Tourist is an enjoyable movie that is easy on the eyes but has more intrigue than the latest adventure by the web-slinging friendly neighborhood superhero.
Johnny Depp has had a difficult time in recent months. The actor has been involved in a lengthy defamation suit with Amber Heard. He’ll also be starting a second trial today against The Sun. He sued them for libel following an article about his private life with Heard.
It’s worth returning to The Tourist if you haven’t already.
