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 14, 2018
Carrey shows that he has real dramatic chops, but this is a crime thriller served cold.

May 10, 2018
Dark Crimes may be bolstered by Carrey's nuanced and fascinating performance but the thoroughly unpleasant film feels like it simply wants to punish viewers ...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

The final sequence of the film provides a jump start, but it's too late to bring it back to life. Dark Crimes is a dreary sort of movie, that lulls you when it should provoke.

That this exercise in vulgarity was made at all is shameful.

There is nearly nothing subtle about Dark Crimes. Not in its blunt title, nor in its heavy-handed script or flashy, unbalanced performances.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
May 17, 2018
A good story gets stuck in a puddle of mood in "Dark Crimes," a film that strays from its fascinating source - a real-life murder case - into a less successful attempt at noir.
May 2, 2018
A dull and lifeless experience that not even the novelty of Jim Carrey wildly against type can save
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 19, 2018
This common cop-becomes-obsessed dynamic is not new; it can be seen in just about every episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Dark Crimes is dank and dreary and no fun...
May 16, 2018
A few words should be said about Carrey's performance: It may be the worst dramatic acting of his career, a charmless cartoon of self-repression.

April 23, 2018
Glum, degrading and dull exploitation film featuring Jim Carrey as "the last honest cop in Poland."
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
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.
May 14, 2018
The cast is game, the production design is impressive and a few surprises await - but even as things heat up, the film somehow remains cold.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 21, 2018
The biggest rap on "Dark Crimes" is the pacing. The cadence is mind-numbing.
Full Review | Original Score: D
May 18, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: D
May 14, 2018
There's a lot of sexual violence in the film, but it scans as unimaginatively repulsive, as well as blatantly misogynistic.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
