Critics Of "The Oxford Murders"
May 01, 2008 Disappointing, badly plotted thriller, let down by some dodgy acting, poor direction and a script that makes The Da Vinci Code look like a masterpiece.Read in Source
May 22, 2008 A polished but verbose whodunit that's surprisingly buttoned-down given helmer Alex de la Inglesia's rep for comicbook wackiness.Read in Source
August 05, 2010 So bad it's good, then? Alas, the whole thing is uncomfortable and boring, scotching any ironic enjoyment of its awfulness.Read in Source
August 08, 2010 The Scooby Doo ending requires nearly ten minutes of explanation and negates the need to follow the previous 90 minutes. It's also preceded by one character stating, "In life, nobody bothers explaining anything." Well, except in this movie.Read in Source
April 29, 2008 The murders are simply chalk marks on a blackboard with no build-up and little fallout.Read in Source
San Francisco Examiner
August 13, 2010 Hurt sells the silliness almost convincingly, but even from such a skillful pitchman it comes out sounding, finally, like junk.Read in Source
San Francisco Chronicle
August 13, 2010 This purported whodunit thriller never solves its main mystery: How and why did this film get made in the first place?Read in Source
August 09, 2010 A math- and symbology-tinged thriller adapted by director Álex de la Iglesia, and pitched at a breakneck, didactic clip, absent any sensible, modulated emotional investment in the characters or material.Read in Source
April 28, 2008 Not so terrible that you can understand why it's been practically buried by its distributors, but you can get better ridiculous whodunits on TV.Read in Source
July 24, 2010 A wonderfully compelling mess of a movie. It's tricky trying to bond Hitchcockian flair with lecture hall semantics, but the director works his tricks with ace visual consideration.Read in Source
