Mortdecai is a scattershot comedy caper film ... destined to fall into that rotation of films you always see on cable networks and wonder if anyone is actually watching them.

It was misguided at every junction.

It was a low-rent Wes Anderson movie.

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.

As I said earlier, it isn't good enough or bad enough to even get a real reaction.

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.

It tries way too hard, getting very few laughs out of a usually pretty reliable cast.

I feel "Mortdecai" went into production on the sole premise of "Johnny Depp wears a silly moustache," and people thought the poster would look funny, and at some point someone realized they needed a script.

It doesn't take an expert in fine art to see that this is a cold, soulless knockoff of a true masterpiece.

The movie is a worthy warning to Hollywood at large: if you're going to make a comedy, hire some damn comedians.

There's nothing worse than a film that's laughing at itself while the auditorium is silent, and while Mortdecai inspires a few chuckles, it never fully delivers.

The clothes are grand enough and so are the mansions and castles where it has been filmed. It is a pity then that it also has to be so boring.

The film simmers but never really sizzles.

Half a dozen effective gags are not enough to get this fiasco to work. [full review in Spanish]
April 24, 2015
The two or three good jokes that the film has are immediately overshadowed by Johnny Depp's over the top performance and horrible English accent.[full review in Spanish]

Mortdecai is a movie you can't criticize for being ridiculous: it's what it aims to be. [full review in Spanish]

Visual repetition is a theme here, but it ends up doing more harm than good. [full review in Spanish]
January 23, 2015
Mortdecai isn't all that funny, quick-witted, or even that interesting. It's yet another misunderstood outsider, fish-out-of-water, unreal, and oblivious hero scenario for Johnny Depp.
Full Review | Original Score: D

I have no idea for whom this movie was made.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
January 23, 2015
At times, it seems like the whole movie is based around making jokes about his well-kept mustache. This helps explain why the vanity project is so frenziedly boring and tedious.
