There's not even much novelty in seeing Carrey play so aggressively against type in this oppressively artless slog.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.25/5

Dark Crimes is a film that doesn't work with a performance that actually works pretty well.
August 24, 2018
Welcome to Dark Crimes, a movie that boldly sets itself a number of obstacles to overcome, beginning with two big ones: the writing and the directing.

Carrey shows that he has real dramatic chops, but this is a crime thriller served cold.

Unfortunately, when you're dealing with Carrey doing a fake Polish accent and NOT trying to be funny, this is something of a mission impossible.
July 25, 2018
The erstwhile Ace Ventura broods like you've never seen before, delivering a performance unlike anything he has ever done. Which isn't to say it's a good one.

The film's pace never deviates from its hushed, deliberate, anticipatory gaze - it's stuck in thriller-foreplay mode.
May 22, 2018
This dreary thriller is a real downer. But Jim Carrey proves again that he can do drama as well as comedy.
May 21, 2018
Carrey commits one hundred and ten percent, fluctuating accent notwithstanding. It's only a matter of time before his newfound artistic intensity will be matched to suitable material to create something special.

And to close with a weekend full of choices, "Dark Crimes"... a Polish film with misogynistic scenes, explicit sex and an unforeseen level of abjection. [Full review in Spanish]

The biggest rap on "Dark Crimes" is the pacing. The cadence is mind-numbing.

The procedural storyline doesn't provide much suspense, nor offer sufficient rationale for emotional investment.

The screenplay teeters between depraved and confusing ("Truth is what you make it. Reality is perception.") Say what?

Source material with great dramatic potential. Talented director and screenwriter. Intriguing cast. That's a promising menu - but the end product leaves a sour taste.

May 18, 2018
Exploitative Carrey thriller has lots of sexual violence.

May 18, 2018
"Dark Crimes" has Carrey, who seems like he's auditioning for an HBO procedural, but the rest of the movie is motionless when it isn't baffling.

[W]e're trying to figure out basic things, like who these characters are, what they're doing ... and why we're watching something so lifeless.

May 17, 2018
That this exercise in vulgarity was made at all is shameful.

Dark Crimes is dank and dreary and no fun...

A lurid, boring mess.
