Critic Reviews for The List of Adrian Messenger

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

An even more damaging miscue is the utilization of stars who are hidden behind facial disguises in fundamentally inconsequential roles.

Top Critic

Saddled with an incredibly creaky whodunit plot, this thriller should really have been set in Victorian times to accommodate its villain with a passion for disguises, its Holmesian detective in a bowler hat, its murder in a fog-bound Limehouse.

Time Out
Top Critic

A captivating murder mystery, and although the viewer finds out fairly early on who the killer is, the mystery of his motive and the suspense of his capture are sufficient to keep one glued to the screen.

February 5, 2008

Convoluted but absorbing.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Reasonably entertaining old-fashioned creaky whodunit.
