When rumors were floating around about the alleged affair that Brad Pitt would have had, this movie "Allied¨ was mentioned as the "scene of the crime". Marion Cottilard got accused of having an affair with Brad Pitt during the shooting of "Allied". None of this turned out to be true though, but it was not long after the shooting of "Allied" that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. See more »
In the assassination scene, Brad Pitt cocks back his Sten gun bolt and then the bolt slams shut. A Sten gun operates from an open bolt, therefore the bolt would not have slammed shut. The trigger pull shuts the bolt and fires the weapon; it will not fire from a closed bolt. If the operator releases the trigger before the magazine is empty, the bolt remains open. Many sub-machine guns operate in this manner, for simplicity and increased airflow to facilitate cooling. See more »
There was no plot twist although there were several places for a plot twist. If you saw the trailer, you saw the movie. Also, the break from the period setting to give modern values with no point. The introduction of a sister to Brad Pitt's character, who is openly a lesbian. This would NEVER happen in the 1940s as homosexuality was against the law and they were greatly disdained by the public. It is a completely pointless distraction from the period setting. Another goof, German Army officers wearing Nazi armbands. I was beginning to think Quinton Tarantino made this movie. Another example of how Hollywood cannot make a period movie without sabotaging their own production.
