Mr. & Mrs. Smith
The pretty onscreen union of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is the only thing “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” offers an audience beyond a relentlessly repetitive series of gunfights and car chases wherein so many bullets are fired that you feel like you’re witnessing a full-blown war. John and Jane Smith are a married couple of paid assassins who have managed to keep their similar occupations concealed from one another until a double-booked hit pits them against each another. Much destruction of shared personal property occurs before John and Jane team up to battle against their many well-armed attackers. The movie is pornography of violence that plays out like a remotely operated video game full of droll asides and sarcastic exchanges.
Rated PG-13, 115 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
