The Good Liar, starring Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen, is a slow-winding mystery that comes to a head with an understated yet satisfying finale.

Helen Mirren is fabulous, but we can't recommend it

It would take a good liar to tell you this succeeds as a taut thriller, but even that wouldn't be able to cover up the truth.
January 23, 2020
Despite The Good Liar's many plot issues, it remains a cracker of a thriller that's worth a watch.
January 13, 2020
It's hard to guess the motivations of the characters...Mirren and McKellen are always fun to watch, no matter the material, but this material is wobbly.

The Good Liar is going to be a fall gem, it's a movie truly for adults in a growing sea of franchise tentpole releases this winter.

Between their performances, Condon's handsome, confident direction and a fine score by Carter Burwell, the movie is well-crafted pleasure.
January 4, 2020
Playing like a stage farce, this is one of those films where even the cast loses faith in a better outcome.

Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren are two of the best actors to come out of England but they're not enough to save this muddled, disappointing script.

The Good Liar has all the ingredients to get your heart racing and your blood pumping: extortion, murder, stolen identity, even online dating. But the sum of its parts comes up far short of expectations.

The film has more turns than what even a mummy's foot would be capable of. [Full Review in Spanish]

After the characters travel to Germany there's too much exposition and Condon cannot recover his movie, allowing The Good Liar to lose its perverse appeal. [Full Review in Spanish]

Interesting, surprising,great cast
December 19, 2019
A handsome, prestige, low-key thriller that plays very effectively with the perils of online dating, tapping into that universal suspicion we all share about the honesty of those we deal with over the internet.
December 12, 2019
Unworthy of the attention and talent poured into it.
December 12, 2019
What starts as a playful cat and mouse game of deception, rapidly loses its way, morphing into an unbelievable, convoluted and dark tale of revenge.
December 11, 2019
This movie requires a major suspension of belief as each reveal gets more ridiculous than the next. But if you can take that leap there's fun to be had
December 10, 2019
Despite its noble efforts, The Good Liar crashes into a clumsy attempt. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 10, 2019
Filmmaker Bill Condon does an effective job of initially luring the viewer into the deliberately-paced proceedings...
December 10, 2019
The film sells itself first on McKellen and Mirren and then on its "twisty" plot. The actors are great; the plot, not.
