It's good (with surprise ending). But not great.
12 October 2016 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I saw True Crimes today, during the 32. Warsaw Film Festival. I came to the screening with high expectations and maybe this is the reason why this crime thriller left me feeling a bit unsatisfied. The story (based on actual events) keeps your interest for the whole 1,5 hours, but I wasn't sitting at the edge of my seat. I didn't feel that high level of emotions. The actors did good, but I think they could do better with a more challenging material. Jim Carrey, who is an excellent drama actor, definitely can show more of his talent. Wonderful Polish actors (Robert Wieckiewicz and Agata Kulesza) were not used as much as they deserve to. I'm also surprised that Marton Csokas and Charlotte Gainsbourgh didn't try to pronounce Polish names correctly (it stood out even more when Jim Carrey proved it's not so hard actually). It just needs a bit of practice. But who knows? Maybe the director didn't care either? The film is good. Worth watching. And the end might surprise you.
