May 27, Full Review…. March 26, Full Review…. View All Critic Reviews Nov 30, It's not going to be called conventionally appealing, or successfully funny, but Mortdecai is not exactly the colossal unwatchable bomb that critics brought out their knives for in the first month of It's a curiosity that has some merit in its failure but it's hard to lambaste this lark too much because it never takes itself too seriously.
Johnny Depp plays Mortdecai, a roguish art dealer who also traffics in stolen paintings. Gwyneth Paltrow is his co-conspirator and wife.
Paul Bettany is Mortdecai's long-suffering manservant always getting into dustups or occasionally shot by his master. The weird left turns the comedy keeps taking don't exactly make the movie better but they save it from being completely unmemorable.
Your enjoyment factor will weigh heavily upon your tolerance for Depp in full foppish mode, an effete dandy who struggles with his conflating love of his mustache and his wife's distaste for it.
The entire story is a shaggy dog caper about stolen art that involves the Russian mafia, MI 5, and Nazi gold, and nothing matters.
The actors look to be having a good deal of fun, playing dress up and trying on silly accents. I can't say I laughed out loud but I did occasionally smile at the absurd commitment.
I mostly sat wondering how something like this gets made, and then I saw that Depp was one of the producers and that answered that question.
Mortdecai may not be worth the invective but that doesn't mean it's good. Nate's Grade: C-. Nate Z Super Reviewer.
Oct 30, Imagine Blake Edwards Pink Panther series updated and starring the oh-so-cool Diana Rigg as a sleuth par excellance and Terry Thomas as her bumbling wannabe a detective husband and you've pretty well got the Mordecai flavor in a nutshell.
But to know what I'm talking about one might well have to have been a child of the Sixties and grown up enjoying that brand of slapstick humor.
Lacking that upbringing this all might seem a little strange, but having that and I assure you, I do have it one might enjoy the lot as sort of time-passing kitschy fun.
I certainly did. Kevin M. W Super Reviewer. Oct 19, Anthony L Super Reviewer. Jun 14, Shawn M Super Reviewer. See all Audience reviews.
Martland: I am not an alcoholic, I am a drunk! And there is a difference I have no problem with repeated jokes because they become bylines and familiarity is not a bad thing.
For example gagging at the mustache once in could not be forgotten during the rest of the film because, after everything, husband and wives do kiss.
All in all a delightful eccentric parody at all levels. My Thoughts: Wow where to begin with this movie. When I first started seeing the trailers for this movie I was intrigued and worried.
I was intrigued cause this looked like an unusual but interesting movie. My worry came from seeing Mr. Johnny Depp playing another character role and this worried me because in my opinion Johnny Depp has been cashing in on his Jack Sparrow character from the Pirate of the Caribbean movies for the past what 10 plus years now.
But I am glad to say that the Mortdecai character stands on his own, yes you could see little flares of Sparrowness in him but over all this character stood on its own.
Let me tell you that all the actors in this movie did a fantastic job. But I have to say that Jock Paul Bettany was great to watch.
Jock is Mortdecai's Man Servant and jack of all trades and without him Mortdecai would not survive a day on his own. Ewan McGregor and Gwyneth Paltrow both shine in their roles as well and think they did a wonderful job in the supporting roles.
Another thing I loved about this movie was the little travel scenes between cities. It kind of reminded me of the old school Indiana Jones plane cut scenes but updated.
I also loved a lot of the cinematography in this movie as well, there was bright colors and sweeping wide screen shots that complimented this movie really well.
This movie is not going to be for everyone though it is a strange quirky comedy and has some ludicrous moments. But as one of my friends said when we walked out of the screening this has that sort of Pink Panther feel and I have to agree this movie follows along those same lines.
My Recommendation: Looking for a different change of pace and a quirky movie then this is for you. I just got back from seeing this and it's honestly one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
I knew it wasn't going to be brilliant, but I like Johnny Depp and thought it would be at least a fun, bumbling action-comedy, a genre that is a 'guilty pleasure' of mine.
It's hard to decide where to start when pointing out the flaws of a dreadful movie like this, but I'll first start by saying that the writing is horrendous.
The lazy writers decided to use the same jokes not once, not twice, but several times because they can't think of anything better to write!
The same goes with Mortdecai's wife gagging when they try to kiss. That happens times as well and is even the final shot of the movie as well!
The rest of the humor is mostly slapstick-based, which would have been fine if it wasn't so painfully obvious what was coming. For example, in one scene Mortdecai is sword fighting a man and he ends up on the ground with a large box suspended from a wire up above.
The man takes the sword and cuts the rope and the box almost 'traps' Mortdecai. And in one ridiculous scene when the writers didn't know how to end it, people attending a party with food poisoned by the villain, despite being in plain view of the villain poisoning the food, eat it and vomit profusely, including onto a moving car's windshield.
The remaining jokes are painfully dumb as well and are basically showcases of the complete stupidity of Mortdecai's character.
For example, he walks into a hotel in Los Angeles and sees people in bikinis and claims that he accidentally went to the set of a porno.
Then he checks in at the reception desk and gets handed a room key and claims that the U. The story is really dull and never really comes together, and even worse, the so-called twist can be guessed miles away.
Overall, "Mortdecai" is an embarrassingly bad comedy that tries to be funny, but the horrible quality of the movie is the real joke.
One of the worst movies I've ever seen! Lord Charlie Mortdecai is a rather seedy minor noble, an art specialist with a stately manor to maintain, and wondering what to do with a rather large tax bill.
Consequently he has little choice but to get involved in a caper involving a restored Goya painting. I fell up the steps as this film started, and spent the first ten minutes doing my best not to throw up at the pain in my knee, added to which I knew from the trailer that I was in for one of Johnny Depp's makeup, mannerisms and funny voice performances, which have rather outstayed their welcome as their number has increased.
And, looking at reviews on the IMDb, it is clear that this movie has, indeed, annoyed and irritated a number of viewers: I fully expected to join their ranks.
And I loved it. There was me and an older couple in the cinema, and all three of us laughed out loud quite often.
The film is very, very silly, and it tickled my funnybone considerably. This is not going to please everyone, but it took my mind off my agonising knee very effectively.
StevePulaski 25 January Johnny Depp has long predicated his acting career off of doing his own thing and not particularly caring what audiences or the general consensus of his performances or mannerisms are.
Ever since the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, Depp has continuously been giving headlining roles in projects with enormous budgets that have either barely broke even, went on to be record box office bombs, or simply withered away without anything of a pop culture impact.
His last few films, "The Rum Diary," "Dark Shadows," "The Lone Ranger," and "Transcendence" all have put up meager numbers at the box office when compared to their respective budgets, but, for whatever reason, financiers and movie studios still funnel money towards Depp's films, with or without any franchise history.
Other than to give critics and hardened film fans an early pick for their worst film of the year, I'm not particularly sure why the film was made, or why and how Lionsgate is going to manage to get a franchise out of such a contemptible titular character and a droll, misguided story.
Depp plays Lord Charlie Mortdecai, an eccentric art dealer who can't keep his hands off his curly mustache, a feature he boasts to fall in line with the other Mortdecai men of past generations and something that serves as an incessant running gag throughout the whole film.
Obsessed with his mustache, his gorgeous wife Johanna Gwyneth Paltrow , and whilst running into trouble at every turn, Mortdecai must travel all around the world to discover a stolen painting said to have a code to a lost bank account that is filled with stolen Nazi gold.
The only one constantly by his side is Jock Strapp Paul Bettany , his trusty protector who does whatever he can to assure the safety of his friend, even if that means taking a bullet for the poor soul on several different occasions, usually as a result of Mortdecai's own personal error.
Something feels off or unsettled about the production, and one begins to fear if they're in for a mediocre or downright awful event, despite quietly hoping the film turns around or gains some sort of balance.
I kept wishing "Mortdecai" would go from stumbling to at least being able to strut with some control, but such optimism was foolish.
How could writer Eric Aronson, director David Koepp, responsible for such great films as "Premium Rush" and "The Trigger Effect," and producer Johnny Depp be a part of something so catastrophic and desperately unfunny?
The film functions in such a way that leads one to believe Aronson took down a list of humorous scenarios to trap his lead character in before constructing them and robbing them of any and all things funny.
Depp traverses one continent after another, going from one brightly-colored setpiece to the next, delivering an endless bout of redundant dialog that is definitely something but that something isn't the least bit funny.
It's exhaustive and aggressively silly, proving time and time again that if you make a film about a character who cannot take himself seriously, in turn, audiences will not be able to take the film seriously and dismiss it on-sight.
Being that the film is constructed so much around Mortdecai, his personality, and his ability to either say the darnedest thing or find himself in every sticky situation imaginable, once one discovers that the titular character is a poorly-constructed, unfunny bore, the film has already crashed and burned because it put so much of its reliance and weight of its success on said character.
The storyline here is enough to drive you mad, not because it's confusing, but it's restless and often interrupted by a legion of weakly-written supporting roles from the likes of great actors like Olivia Munn and Ewan McGregor.
The film zig-zags around enough that any clean, linear form of a plot is lost immediately, and the fact that constant silliness is being paraded around screen from Depp's character or an anti-climactic, buffoonish car chase shreds any kind of interest at all in the story at hand.
At this point, the film has effectively given us an insufferable character lead character and a disorganized mess of a plot that can't help but interrupt itself; once you have a film destroy its two pioneering elements, all you have left are aesthetics, and so very few films have gotten by on those principles alone.
The aesthetics of the film are beautiful, with cinematographical work by Florian Hoffmeister shining through, as this is a candy-colored affair; the fact that "Mortdecai" puts little emphasis on environments and I'm commending the cinematography shows how desperate I was to try and find something on screen that interested me.
This is one of the worst, most grating cinematic experiences I've had in recent memory. Blue Iguana Ocjena: 1. Abraham Lincoln protiv zombija akcija komedija horror.

The sale attracts Fang and Romanov, whose thugs Mortdecai and Jock waylay. In the auction room, Strago attempts to kidnap Johanna, Mortdecai bids up the 'Goya', Sir Graham wins it for Romanov; Martland apprehends Strago during the commotion.

Principal photography and production began in London on October 21, Parts of the film were shot on location at Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire in the UK,  where Depp, Munn, and Bettany filmed scenes in Hedsor House's Boudoir and Bridal Suites.
