Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
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 fireLouise Keller, Urban Cinefile, 02.02.2015
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.Jim Schembri, 3AW, 01.30.2015
Aside from a hipster barber here and there, it is hard to imagine who this filmic folly is really aimed at.Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia), 01.29.2015
With art-heist caper Mortdecai, Johnny Depp tries his darnedest to start a kooky Austin Powers-like franchise with a side of bumbling Insp. Clouseau. But dash it all if it isn't a crashing bore, old bean.Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, 01.23.2015
