Depp's exaggerated mannerisms and affected speech are sure to infuriate his detractors and please those who enjoy his long line of goofy character creations.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 2, 2016
He's a character of a bygone age of literature and film plopped down into this time and place but with no realization that anything is different. All in all, you could certainly do a lot worse for a January release.

This is not the first failure at the box office that becomes a cult film with time. [full review in Spanish]

Johnny Depp as an updated Baron Munchausen.

Look past the vicious reviews and the film reveals itself to be squarely in the genial, proudly silly spirit of everything from The Pink Panther to Austin Powers.

You may not like it, but it's hardly the worst movie ever made. It isn't even anywhere near the worst movie released this month.

The humour is puerile and idiotic, but you may laugh out loud in spite of yourself -- especially if you're familiar with the Carry On movies or the original Pink Panther.

Daffy, dated, and precisely as intended.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

If you have an allergy to pure goofballery, this is not the movie for you. Spend your Depp bucks elsewhere.
Full Review | Original Score: B-

It's exactly the sort of oddball trifle, like Hudson Hawk, that tends to attract the ire of baffled audiences and grumpy critics. It's also the sort of oddball trifle that, like Hudson Hawk, will put certain aficionados of silliness in a pretty good mood.

It's undemanding stuff...but fans of Depp at his more energetic will see it as a collector's item.
January 22, 2015
Those who do find their way into this supremely silly action-mystery caper are in for a few grins if not laughs thanks largely to the deft - and daft - performance of Johnny Depp in the title role.
January 22, 2015
Mortdecai works as a low-stakes comic mystery that is refreshingly aimed squarely at adult moviegoers.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.0/10

It was misguided at every junction.
March 26, 2020
It was a low-rent Wes Anderson movie.
January 10, 2020
As I said earlier, it isn't good enough or bad enough to even get a real reaction.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Mortdecai is an okay film that will struggle to find a U.S. audience. A character is given a silly mustache to set the tone right away, and the tone in entirety is just that- silly.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.3/10

It doesn't take an expert in fine art to see that this is a cold, soulless knockoff of a true masterpiece.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 23, 2019
It tries way too hard, getting very few laughs out of a usually pretty reliable cast.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
December 10, 2018
Most caper comedies understand the need to pepper their expository scenes with sight gags. Nothing brings what should be a fun heist flick to a dead halt like two poorly lit actors sitting opposite each other reading out the plot scenario.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
