Jim Carrey and his bearded star in this gritty 2016 crime drama as Tadek, a detective who uncovers dark secrets after noticing similarities between a murder case that has seemingly open and a fictional murder is described in the novel. It’s an interesting, true story, The decision. In the right hand, it can be something introduced. But it’s not like that.
Carrey tried her best here, but it just wasn’t enough. The movie is too poorly paced and boring to justify its sheer unhappiness. Above Rotten Tomatoes, where it received no love, critics unanimously said, “‘Dark Crimes’ is an unsettling, heart-wrenching rote thriller that fails to connect with its compelling true story. and a devoted performance of Jim Carrey is even chilling.”
