ReaderKenka Let's be realistic.
Phonearl Good start, but then it gets ruined
Curapedi I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
Joanna Mccarty Amazing worth wacthing. So good. Biased but well made with many good points.
Julian Evans I couldn't stay the distance with this film. An American actor playing the part of Terry Thomas (or it seems that way to me) but without the charm or authenticity of the original. Johnny Depp is capable of such great things (Ed Wood, The Ninth Gate) but the exagerated facial expressions here are the same as those for Jack Sparrow, and the accent is forced and overcooked. There is simply no humour in this film. It's childish and silly in ways that are neither charming nor clever. It lacks integrity. It's a collection of daft scenes, joined together by hapless, inane dialogue and the undoubted belief that 'because it's Johnny Depp it's automatically great'... it isn't. Neither is it based in any form of 'truth' that the viewer can relate to. Stupid cheese gags, comedic 'moments' with knowing glances and head tosses to add style to the proceedings... but all fall flat. This is comedy that explains itself, that has no subtlety or connection with the tradegy of the human condition.Watch 'Father Ted', 'Steptoe & Son', 'Fawlty Towers', 'Flight of the Conchords'. These are about life, people, the absurdity of the modern world. Mortdecai, in contrast, is a film about nothing, no-one, no place, no time.Gwyneth Paltrow phones it in and Ewan McGregor is wasting his time here. Where does the money come from to write, film and promote this kind of film? There's so much talent out there looking for a break, and yet here we are again with a big star vanity project, missing the mark by a mile.Two out of ten. For me it's a stinker.
tuckerbuffington I saw this movie with my family a few years ago because of Depp and McGregor and we all ended up laughing the whole time and enjoying it. I'm not saying it's up for best picture or anything but it's certainly a movie you can pop in and get some laughs out of.
adonis98-743-186503 Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai races to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain a code that leads to lost gold. Mortdecai is not perfect and it's definitely not one of Johnny Depp's best films but it packs a few good laughs and the cast does a good overall job. Like i said it's not perfect it's a bit cheesy at times and not all jokes hit as they might expected but i have seen worse than that. (6.5/10)
jwdesign-77554 I don't understand the bad reviews, I thought it was hilarious. Depp's best character yet. I love silly, witty dialogue and this is chock full of it. It doesn't hurt that it is also visually gorgeous. Love the Rolls!
