Movie Review: Mortdecai

Yikes! What a disaster! Given the trend of Johnny Depp's recent films, I wasn't expecting Mortdecai to be excellent, but this was pure garbage. Nothing in this movie seemed realistic, there was very little characterization, in parts due to the overwhelming attempts at some annoyingly dated humor, and it was just full of pointless scenes. Even the acting ensemble, which includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bethany, were terrible and the shallow content of the film exposed the uncharismatic, borderline irritating nature of this train wreck. Maybe it was meant to be campy, but I just didn't get it. Save yourself some misery and watch something else because Mortdecai, dare I say, is the worst film of 2015 - and it's just January! 2

This is not Mr Depp's best work. It's almost mediocre.
