A flat and dull disappointment.

Any film featuring Johnny Depp on-screen is going to bring great excitement to critics, film fanatics and amongst others which generally leads to exceedingly high expectations. Plus, in The Rum Diary there were other possibilities that could make it become something worthwhile to fully enjoy and get a lot of fun out of due to the settings of the film, cinematography and with a story that could hav... read more

Never truly anything great, and Depp is clearly too old for the role, but there’s something so oddly charming and entertaining about The Rum Diary. Maybe it’s that there’s clearly a lot of love for Hunter S. Thompson on display here, and the film works best when you think of it as a love-letter to the days when the artist was trying to find his footing and artistic voice. By the time the fil... read more

Anautix' Movie Diary 2014 (100 movies items)

"02.02.2014 Johnny Depp plays a writer who goes to Puerto Rico in 1960 to work as a journalist for a local newspaper... He also meets there a wealthy business man and falls in love with his beautiful wife (Amber Heard)... This comedy has two or three very funny moments where I had to LOL, Amber Heard is very sexy - especially in the white dress, but nevertheless the movie failed to meet my expectations. "

"Ihan kiva pläjäys, vaikkei pääse lähellekään mainiotta Pelkoa ja inhoa Las Vegasissa -elokuvan tasoa. Ihan kohtuullisesti näyttää Puerto Ricon meininkiä ja Johnny Deppikin vetää roolinsa ihan hyvin. Tosin elokuva on hieman pitkäpiimäinen. Myös osa hahmoista olisi kaivannut enemmän särmää."

"9.11. Blu-ray Giovanni Ribisin hahmo oli ihan hupaisa, mutta muuten tän leffan hulluttelu prosentti oli harmillisen pieni. Oli tää kuitenkin ihan hauska. Parempi kuin mitä odotin."

“While I am a huge fan of hunter s thompson and the book, I was very excited for the movie. I very much appreciate johnny depp taking the time and money to put this film together. I really feel a little disappointed by the film, I'd still rate it a weak b- but feel hunters writing is not as well portrayed like it was in fear and loathing. While johnny depp and giovani ribisi really carry the movie and both give stellar performances I was let down by the film ability to captivate the story. Worth checking out when it comes to dvd!” read more

"Didn't expect it to be a juggernaut, but with Johnny Depp's name attached, and the oddball look of the film, I thought that it might attract a decent audience. It did not. Prediction: $40-60mil. Actual: $13,109,815."

"Deppillä on vähän tylsää olla Thompson näin toistamiseen. Kirjassa ei tehdä muuta kuin juoda rommia ja syödä hampurilaisia. Tässä juodaan vain rommia ja käydään katsomassa kukkotappeluita, jotka ovat jostain syystä toteutettu hidastettuina. Amber Heard on kyllä ihan näppärä ilmestys ja jo alkujaankin hivenen tylsähkön romaanin olemuksesta on saatu jotain napattuakin. Nimittäin se tylsyys."

"Hammered by critics who had no frame of reference. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Do not expect another "Fear and Loathing", H.S. Thompson, psychadelic trip. This was before Hunter switched to the hard stuff, and was instead hitting the sauce extremely hard. So was everyone else in 1960 Puerto Rico. Very fun, with some trademark witty political satire."
