The film simmers but never really sizzles.
May 14, 2015
More a misguided mess than a truly abysmal effort.

[Blu-ray Review] Lionsgate's Blu-ray release of "Mortdecai" presents the movie in its best light, but that's sadly not saying much.
May 12, 2015
"Mortdecai" wallows in the shallow and moronic as the energetic actors struggle to bring dignity to a project that has none. They should have known better.
May 11, 2015
Mortdecai is a completely misguided attempt at bringing Kyril Bonfiglioli's beloved cult characters to the screen, utilizing unfunny jokes that are repeated ad nauseum, and featuring a downright embarrassing performance from Johnny Depp.

Half a dozen effective gags are not enough to get this fiasco to work. [full review in Spanish]

Mortdecai is a movie you can't criticize for being ridiculous: it's what it aims to be. [full review in Spanish]
April 24, 2015
Visual repetition is a theme here, but it ends up doing more harm than good. [full review in Spanish]
April 24, 2015
The two or three good jokes that the film has are immediately overshadowed by Johnny Depp's over the top performance and horrible English accent.[full review in Spanish]

This is not the first failure at the box office that becomes a cult film with time. [full review in Spanish]
March 27, 2015
An abysmal would-be comedy that sees the quickly falling star delivering a performance that's as hammy and unfunny as it is dull and embarrassing.
February 10, 2015
An overlong disaster...

Johnny Depp as an updated Baron Munchausen.
February 5, 2015
Look past the vicious reviews and the film reveals itself to be squarely in the genial, proudly silly spirit of everything from The Pink Panther to Austin Powers.
February 4, 2015
Depp's Charlie Mortdecai, a conglomeration of grunts, bleats, facial tics and a moustache that becomes a subplot by itself, is a hoot, but highly unlikely to join Capt. Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood or Willy Wonka in his hall of fame.
February 2, 2015
There are a few amusing touches, but overall, Mortdecai sinks to the depths, its potential battered by an overdose of ham and a mannered performance by Johnny Depp that just doesn't fire
February 1, 2015
A tiresome misfire that's mortifying for all concerned...
January 30, 2015
A dreadfully flat and unfunny film...It really is painful to watch such a terrific actor as Johnny Depp bland out in such a big way.
January 30, 2015
Tiresome caper comedy has big stars, little appeal.
January 29, 2015
Aside from a hipster barber here and there, it is hard to imagine who this filmic folly is really aimed at.
