Predominantly fizzy and shamelessly cheesy

The cast is first rate. As Flynn, Cocquerel has the good looks that made the Tazmanian Devil a star.

The four have varying views of what their worldviews should be. The pacing is uneven, but the film still has some philosophical heft.
January 29, 2019
Flashes of fun, mostly in the brawls, but a run-of-the-mill script and never dazzling leads let ol'Errol down.

Mulcahy may be aiming for a boisterous good time like the Flynn-starring classic Captain Blood, but the flat, template-like raucousness of the Pirates of the Caribbean series oft proves more fitting.
January 26, 2019
Russell Mulcahy's seriocomic imagining of Errol Flynn's pre-stardom adventures is hugely satisfying old-fashioned fun.
January 25, 2019
Haphazardly assembled with minimal coherence or narrative logic, it plays out like a juvenile fantasy version of an Indiana Jones adventure.
January 25, 2019
The tonal discord can be forgiven due to the charming performances and the inherent tongue-in-cheekness of some of the situations, however, it cannot be forgotten.

[The opening] shows a lot of promise for a biography that adheres more to the legend of its subject ... The rest of the movie ... never matches that initial energy.
January 24, 2019
Nothing can make up for a paper-thin script that fails to make anything of the central character or his connections with people around him.
January 24, 2019
[W]ith its incoherent, episodic script, "In Like Flynn" lacks the worth of even a minor Flynn film.
January 24, 2019
In the end, what we have with In Like Flynn is an homage to the action-adventure tales of old Hollywood, appealing to the fans of the adventure films of old.

The film sits somewhat uncomfortably between serious and silly. They aren't aided by dodgy CGI that can't disguise the production's limited resources.
October 19, 2018
This is an ambitious film from an important director that, like its subject, is far from perfect. But it deserves credit for just being there.

Why make a movie about the pre-movie-star Errol?
October 10, 2018
If the source material is an obvious myth, the movie version - which also includes a yachting odyssey in search of lost gold - is a tone-deaf mess. Avoid.

As Flynn, Australian actor Thomas Cocquerel...has the looks but neither the accent nor the urbanity required to bring him back to life.
October 10, 2018
This is a fun film constructed in a smart way: an anti-high art picture that happily prioritises embellishing legend over recreating life.
October 7, 2018 swings, swashes, and buckles in a way that the man himself would probably have loved.

More extraordinary than any fictional film script, this 'mostly true' account of Errol Flynn's exploits before Hollywood days is a ripper. Russell Mulcahy has crafted a wonderfully entertaining film filled with exotic locations, action and surprises.
