Elise (Angelina Jolie) sits next to an American tourist, Frank (Johnny Depp), on a train going to Venice. She has chosen him as a decoy, making believe that he is her lover who is wanted by police. Not only will they need to evade the police, but also the mobster whose money her lover stole.
It's like watching the film Red... only this time it's younger with a romantic setting - Venice. It has a dose of mystery and action with a lot of dash of comedic, humorous scenes. It's light not heavy or dark. So those who were expecting a loaded story or expecting that it is an intellectual film with eye popping action you will be heavily disappointed.
