Very poor movie
The first movie I ever walked out of. The main problems are the undeveloped characters and poorly unfolded "mystery." Actors yammer on in monotones and motives are not clear. Why, Neil Jordan, why?
Terrible excuse of a story line, no plot, terrible all around. Do not recommend.
Nothing truly interesting carried the movie
There’s a little bit of fun and interest along the way and Lange has some fun with her eccentric persona, but this feels under-energised.
Despite a stellar cast, Marlowe doesn’t rise to the occasion, stumbling along without ever finding its footing.
While the star adequately acquits himself, Neil Jordan’s throwback noir is a cover song that knows all the notes but can’t capture its predecessor’s spirit.
