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.

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.
April 11, 2014
The kind of crime flick where the characters volley dialogue like furious ping-pong players, riffing with delight, their lines ripe with pulpy metaphor.
April 10, 2014
"Dom Hemingway" isn't about story. It's about Jude Law as a force of nature, and that turns out to be a very entertaining diversion.

Shepard ... has his hero puff himself up, repeatedly, only to be drastically deflated, revealing the pitifulness of his braggadocio.
April 10, 2014
Dom's adventures make for a pretty thin garment in which to cloth such an outsize antihero.
April 10, 2014
The real star here is writer-director Richard Shepard, who pumps enough comic juice into the story to revive its shopworn premise of a career criminal hitting the streets again after years in the can.

Dom Hemingway is mainly a one-man show. But it's a hoot to watch Jude Law sink his teeth into such a despicable character ...
April 10, 2014
The material, limited payoff; the performer at the center, never less than arresting.
April 7, 2014
Law, saying farewell to his youthful good looks (Dom has scars and a little too much weight), makes this hyper-articulate ruffian the most intricately soulful character in current movies.
April 4, 2014
Dom Hemingway is an uneven movie, to be sure ... but it's still hard to resist.
April 3, 2014
The movie keeps crashing into crude shtick, clich, and mawkishness.
April 3, 2014
An amusing tale of vengeance, debauchery and redemption told stylishly by writer-director Richard Shepard.
April 3, 2014
Almost every line is delivered with such overwrought bombast, just inches at times from the camera, you may feel a need to dodge the spittle.
April 3, 2014
Dom Hemingway is often ghoulishly funny, with Law, who put on weight for the role and plays up his receding hairline, turning in a larger-than-life performance unlike any he's given before.
April 3, 2014
The real amazement of Dom Hemingway is that, as written and directed by Richard Shepard, the movie picks up this snarling hooligan and treats him like a character out of Shakespeare.
