  • Sleuth"is that rare film that would have been better longer. You're not through looking at Caine and Law when the final credits roll. show more

  • While the entire premise of Sleuth is a gimmick, having Michael Caine and Jude Law remake the 1972 adaptation of Anthony Shaffer's Tony Award-winning play heightens the gimmick quotient. show more

  • Art-directed within an inch of its life, Sleuth has the smirky gloss of a project that everyone involved with thinks is terribly good, and terribly clever. These people - Branagh, Pinter, Law and the usually great Caine (even in bad stuff) - are laboring under an epic misconception. Sleuth is just terrible. show more

    Save your money, don't even waste your money on the DVD when it comes out next week..I was hoping for a good remake considering the cast but by far the worst remake I've ever seen..the orginal was one of the best movies I've ever seen.
