Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai races to recover a stolen painting rumoured to contain a code that leads to lost Nazi gold.
When going to see a movie like Mortdecai it’s best to suspend belief and just go where the film takes you. It’s a mish-mash of slapstick humour with over the top English accents, comic violence and romance. It’s by no means a masterpiece of comedy or acting, but it is an easily watchable piece of mindless fun.
Following the escapades of art dealer/rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Depp), this film adventure sees him recruited by a pompous MI5 agent (McGregor) to chase down a priceless painting. Based on the novels by Kyril Bonfiglioli,
