Throughout the film, Jim Carrey's accent changes from Eastern European to Western European and he even forgets the accent no less than three times while speaking with an American inflection. With a total shoot of over 30 days, his re-shoots were likely several weeks apart. See more »
This movie was initiallly released in Europe. In 2016. Up until then the ratings had it at 7.6
Then it gets re-released to US and worldwide as Dark Crimes. Then the ratings and reviews drop it down to under 5.
So you understand the differences of opinion here.
I liked the movie. It is slow paced yes, but it does not drag too long. I enjoyed the filmography and the direction of scene (it actually reminded me of Mr Robot) with a slight twist at the end.
All the shot/reverse-shot scenes between Jim Carrey and Marton Csokas were amazing. And Jim Carrey playing the cold detective is also very good.
I recommend it, unfortunately, others do not becuase it's not an American cop drama with lots of shooting explosions etc. If you expect that, do not see the film
