[A] stunningly turgid mess.
| Original Score: 2/5
Both Miss Taylor and Miss Novak, as larger-than-life silver-screen rivals of a certain age, get all wound up for some fancy, high-toned tongue-lashings, but the material isn't up to their power.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
For all her prolificacy, Agatha Christie relied too often on one particular plot twist, and as soon as you recognize her old favorite here, the film loses all interest.
Though it's obvious after five minutes that this is a complete no-no, the cinema equivalent of a bellyflop, it exercises a perverse fascination
| Original Score: 3/5
A nostalgic throwback to the genteel British murder mystery pix of the 1950s.
The Mirror Crack'd is a thoroughly enjoyable Agatha Christie mystery.
Watching Novak and Taylor lay into each other verbally is a treat. Whether that should be what you come away with from a Miss Marple movie is another consideration.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
[A] classic murder mystery drama.
The big-name cast is a great, nostalgic throwback to the 1950s, when its players' names -- Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Kim Novak, Tony Curtis -- graced giant theater marquees.
| Original Score: 3/4
The good lines make Mirror more fun to watch than it has any right to be.
