My Movie Review – “Allied”


by Michael Lodge

The one good thing about working in Hollywood as a tax accountant is that sometimes you get to go to movie premiers.  The best thing – free popcorn and drinks.  Last night I went to the premier of “Allied” with Brad Pit.  Excellent movie with twists and turns, touching the heart-strings and of course love.  This starts off to be a spy movie of dark soled individuals, that have to be secret, they have histories, failures, and it all comes together with love.  The ending was not how I thought it would end, tricky ending that makes sense.  All good movies have to have a good ending that surprises you, otherwise you have just eaten a whole bag of free popcorn for nothing.  I give this five stars out of five. Go see it and enjoy.  Perhaps academy material.
