Praise for ‘The Tourist’
For those who like their TV shows to be like 6-hour movies, The Tourist is the perfect show. Though it starts slow and reveals little in the first episode, each passing hour yields greater tension and new evidence that keeps the viewer in suspense until the final minutes. Filling out the cast are many recognizable character actors, and a particularly notable Jamie Dornan broods as the main character in his most intense role ever. Not your average thriller, The Tourist makes you wait and rewards you for your patience.
