samskivert: From Hell (2)

21 October 2001

Though I appreciated Depp’s performance as the dragon chasing, precognizant detective, the rest of the film failed to come together into any sort of compelling whole. All style and no substance. It’s a shame to see all of the talent that came together for this film short changed by a marginal script and less than inspired direction.
