Review Roundup: Jude Law Brings DOM HEMINGWAY to Theaters

Jude Law is back in theaters this weekend with the dark-comedy DOM HEMINGWAY. Written and directed by Richard Shepard, the film, starring Law and Richard E. Grant, was shot on location in the South of France.

In the film, which opens in limited release on Friday, Law plays a notorious safecracker looking for payback from a crime boss portrayed by Demian Bichir. The cast also features Emilia Clarke, Jumyan Hunter and Madalina Ghenea.

Let's see what the critics had to say:

Manohla Dargis | New York Times

"Come for the performance; stay for the performance. Because, to answer Peggy Lee's lingering question, that's all there is. Well, almost: There are also bright eye-popping colors, amusing lines and many clever production-design touches." Read the full review here.

Betsy Sharkey | Los Angeles Times

"Law has embraced the lawless Dom so completely, disappeared so deeply, that it can be disconcerting to witness the bruising altercations and poetically perverse soliloquies that dominate this immoral morality play." Read the full review here.

Owen Gleiberman | Entertainment Weekly

"It's a kick to see Law, who normally plays more civilized types, get his underworld thug on by embracing the role of a vicious Cockney criminal with greased-back hair, a double-muttonchop beard, and a glittery-eyed leer of sexual hunger." Read the full review here.

Claudia Puig | USA Today

"Here, both Shepard and Law are trying too hard - and yet it's never enough to create an authentic, full-bodied character. All the effort goes into brash outrageousness. Then, amid all the explosive nastiness, the story blandly shifts gears to a sentimentality that especially doesn't ring true." Read the full review here.
