Woody Allen's latest comedy-drama features superb performances from a traditionally impressive cast but is let down by a disappointing script that seems to actively avoid dramatic impact.

There's plenty of ambiguous intellectual heft lurking behind the curtain of mediocrity - so it's a pity it feels like it was dashed off in a few hours one afternoon.

Though Allen has never been exactly feelgood, his previously endearing pessimism has given way to a mean-spiritedness that here borders on misanthropy.

Allen avoids giving any possible answers or resolutions - apart from 'getting in touch with your spiritual side'

Still no signs of the master re-living past glories, but more than worthwhile for Allen diehards.

Overall it's a cold and inconsequential piece that won't be remembered with affection.

Shadows on the Wall

A string of A-list British acting talent adds a zing of interest to this somewhat uneven Woody Allen relationship farce. Yet despite its failings, the film is enjoyably watchable and packed with knowing observations.

Allen has here an interesting idea-that placebos may 'work better' than medicine-to noodle over and ultimately reject; it's just a shame he doesn't entertain us more in the process. [Blu-ray]

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Although Allen's field of poorly adjusted people may be interesting to watch run around for a while, they shed little new light on an already well-expressed cynical point of view.

The talented cast fails to gel into a dynamic ensemble: You just see actors going through familiar paces.

Woody Allen cranks out another formulaic interweave of romantic crushes, with old jazz on the soundtrack to supply some artificial gaiety.

If ever there were an example of an artist with nothing left to say, Woody Allen is its living definition.

Some moderately interesting characters occasionally do some mildly amusing things, but in the end no one is satisfied, least of all the audience.

While Tall Dark can be a tad stilted, taking place as it does in Allen's fictionalized universe, most of it functions so smoothly it makes you forget about all the strings being pulled

What passes for Allen's idea of an innovative sex gag? Anthony Hopkins' doddering character Alfie counting down the minutes until the Viagra tablet takes effect.

I'm starting to think Allen makes movies like he files his tax returns. Some years business is fantastic, other years it's struggling. But he still files one every year. This year, business was so-so.

The slight pic benefits greatly from the talented ensemble cast that makes more of the tiresome dialogue than can be expected.

At least on one viewing and with no distance -- it falls shy of being a great Woody Allen picture.
