Dom Hemingway Reviews

April 24, 2014
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.
April 18, 2014
You don't so much care where Dom is going as how he's getting there, and he's getting there loud.

"Dom Hemingway" has two terrific things going for it: snappy dialogue (I was quite fond of the accusation "You disrespected my cat") and Law, who's both funny and scary in equal measures.
April 17, 2014
Dom Hemingway is often viciously funny, and every time you think the movie has run out of steam, Shepard spins things in a new direction, keeping the energy from flagging (including one of the most startling car crashes I've ever seen in a film).
April 17, 2014
While Law bellows blasphemous poetry, his director orchestrates a noirish light show with a cockeyed rhythm.
April 11, 2014
Dom Hemingway suffers from a meandering narrative and inconsistent comedy.
August 28, 2018
It's almost Deadwood-level macho brilliance, lyrical and delivered with a generous helping of spit.

While Jude Law summons all his energy to pronounce his many curse words with verve and feeling, no amount of f-bombs can launch him above a plot that was simply boring, and pacing that was awkward and excruciating.

Like the title character, you aren't likely to forget it - and find yourself rooting for it against your better judgment.

I figured that at some point Dom Hemingway-like Dom Hemingway-would have to choose what it wants to be.
July 14, 2016
An angry and noisy romp that left this reviewer feeling cold.

Always feels fake.
September 10, 2014
The results are so delightful you can't help hoping Law lets his hairline recede and gym membership expire.
August 15, 2014
Dom Hemingway lives or dies by the audience's identification with its protagonist.
July 28, 2014
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.
July 28, 2014
In his attempt to build a story around a two-dimensional character, writer/director Richard Shepard has ended up with a meandering mess of clichs that was in desperate need of some originality.
June 12, 2014
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.
May 26, 2014
When the movie takes a break from its tone of merry obnoxiousness to strain for poignancy, it settles too easily into sentimentality.
May 14, 2014
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.
May 5, 2014
Jude Law is great, sure, but Dom Hemingway remains a character in search of a story, uttering sentences in search of a script.
