Consensus: Jude Law is clearly having fun in Dom Hemingway's title role, but viewers may find this purposely abrasive gangster dramedy isn't quite as enjoyable from the other side of the screen.

Dom is effusive with self-destructive charisma, the kind of loose cannon you'd follow into an all-night bender in spite of your better judgment.

The title character of this florid crime comedy could be an escapee from a Tarantino script, all flashy character traits and verbal overkill.

The results are so delightful you can't help hoping Law lets his hairline recede and gym membership expire.

You don't so much care where Dom is going as how he's getting there, and he's getting there loud.

Dom Hemingway is often viciously funny, and every time you think the movie has run out of steam, Shepard spins things in a new direction, keeping the energy from flagging (including one of the most startling car crashes I've ever seen in a film).

Dom Hemingway lives or dies by the audience's identification with its protagonist.

"Dom Hemingway" has two terrific things going for it: snappy dialogue (I was quite fond of the accusation "You disrespected my cat") and Law, who's both funny and scary in equal measures.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

While Law bellows blasphemous poetry, his director orchestrates a noirish light show with a cockeyed rhythm.

Movie Metropolis

Jude Law gives a bravura performance as the title character, but you can't escape the feeling that this 2013 crime comedy-drama could have been either funnier or more dramatic.

A name doesn't get too much more British gangster than Dom, but Hemingway, well, I don't know where that's coming from. Don't go thinking… More
