Two years later the ratings drop down
3 June 2018 | by john-demetriou-jdSee all my reviews

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
