An angry and noisy romp that left this reviewer feeling cold.

Always feels fake.

The results are so delightful you can't help hoping Law lets his hairline recede and gym membership expire.

Dom Hemingway lives or dies by the audience's identification with its protagonist.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Jude Law gives a bravura performance as the title character, but you can't escape the feeling that this 2013 crime comedy-drama could have been either funnier or more dramatic.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
Jeff Beck

In his attempt to build a story around a two-dimensional character, writer/director Richard Shepard has ended up with a meandering mess of clichés that was in desperate need of some originality.

Law tears into his role like he's like one of Shakespeare's most scabrous lost characters somehow unleashed in the modern world, and he clearly relishes the grit and the gristle.

When the movie takes a break from its tone of merry obnoxiousness to strain for poignancy, it settles too easily into sentimentality.

He's not the kind of guy you'd want to date your daughter. Neither, for most, is he the kind of guy you'd want to spend 90 minutes with in a movie theater.

Jude Law is great, sure, but Dom Hemingway remains a character in search of a story, uttering sentences in search of a script.

I unreservedly love Richard Shepard's Dom Hemingway, and I strongly urge everyone with a taste for quirky, dark crime comedy of the British variety to beat a path to it.

I've always been on the fence about Law. For every Gattaca or Closer, there are a handful of The Holidays and Cold Mountains to contend with. But if Dom isn't his best performance, it's certainly his funniest.

Law absolutely relishes the opportunity to strip away any semblance of his former 'sex symbol' status to embody this ape of a man. His chest beating, hard drinking, fourth wall breaking, libidinous freak needs to make up for lost time.

The brutal emotions of the script mixed with the untethered performances make Dom Hemingway the kind of movie that viewers will either deeply hate or passionately love. Shepard leaves no room for a middle ground.

Dom is effusive with self-destructive charisma, the kind of loose cannon you'd follow into an all-night bender in spite of your better judgment.

Not much comedy. Even less redemption.

The screenplay bristles, performances are terrific and the music throbs when needed

Jude Law is undeniably mesmerizing as the venom spewing, short fused, alcohol dependent Dom Hemingway. Unfortunately the story finds itself running in circles and nothing feels resolved.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

An enjoyable lark featuring a magnificent performance by Jude Law.

Dom Hemingway delivers on half of its well-meaning intentions - prioritizing eccentric comedy beats over its unconventional tale of love and self-reflection.
