Critic Reviews for Once Upon a Time in Venice
That hissing sound you hear is the air being let out of Bruce Willis as he struggles mightily to reconnect with once-vital action-comedy chops in the dim, unfunny Once Upon a Time in Venice.
Of course Willis employs his trademark smirk and his familiar sarcastic line readings. Of course we've seen him play variations on this downtrodden, wisecracking cynic in better movies. But B-movie Willis is still kind of a hoot.
Once Upon a Time in Venice frequently sags underneath its own general lethargy, and not even the snarkiest John McClane can fix that.
It's as much a snapshot of a screwball neighborhood as it is a loose-ended shaggy dog story, with a weird, buoyant spirit that lifts it up over its somewhat sloppy storytelling.
Bruce Willis barks up a number of wrong trees in this scattered, only sparsely amusing shaggy-dog mystery.
Audience Reviews for Once Upon a Time in Venice
A patently unfunny comedy, whose audience-gateway character is the most annoying of the bunch. Moderately uplifted by setting, the fact that Bruce Willis wasn't 100% phoning it in for once, John Goodman once again "going through some stuff", and the always endearing Jason Momoa... Who is apparently Mexican for some reason.
