Movie Reviews

  • witless drivel
    by Ray Bennett [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • to call it a black comedy is probably misleading: It's grey at best, and apart from a few scattered chuckles, it dies as quickly and gracelessly as Burke and Hare's victims
    by Ian Buckwalter [NPR ]
  • the new Burke & Hare offers many pleasures, chief among them the return of the Landis of old
    Review rate : B by Nathan Rabin [AV Club ]
  • the misfortune in this loping cadence is that the movie's stereotypes aren't made buffoonish enough to be gawked at
    1.5 of 4 by Joseph Jon Lanthier [Slant Magazine ]
  • Landis' retelling, from a pretty clever script by Nick Moorcroft and Piers Ashworth, makes the title duo a couple of lovable ne'er-do-wells who happen upon homicide for profit more or less by accident
    4 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • its unapologetically old-fashioned sensibility may have trouble connecting with contempo auds
    by Charles Gant [Variety ]
  • by swinging between broad laughs and cheap pathos-Pegg's specialties as an actor, apparently-while avoiding the more fertile ground between, Landis renders his Burke and Hare sociopolitically toothless and bizarrely insensitive
    by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice ]
  • a nasty movie without any bite, a comedy that depicts gruesome acts with glee, but doesn't mine any real satirical humor from them
    2.5 of 5 by Josh Bell [Filmcritic.com ]
