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
The poster is awful. The premise is awful. To be frank, quite a lot about it is awful ...Peter Bradshaw, Guardian, 01.22.2015
"Mortdecai" is mortdifying, a mortdal sin of a movie that's headed for the cinematic mortduary.Kyle Smith, New York Post, 01.22.2015
It is not enough to fall about and do funny voices. You need a script with actual wit and verifiable verve.Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, 01.22.2015
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.Eddie Cockrell, sbs.com.au, 02.05.2015
