Dom Hemingway is a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse - funny, profane, and dangerous.

Travelling with his devoted best friend (Grant), Dom visits his crime boss (Bichir) in the south of France to claim his reward.

Jude Law is a great actor but this verbose and way over the top character was just confusing and instantly dislikeable.
The film was a mess and ambled along with little cohesion.
It should've been good but it wasn't.

This film is as little as full of surprires and twists. It starts with a powerful monologue by an unrecognizable Jude Law.
Then the plot take a sudden turn which makes the story begin and unfolds in an unpredictable yet smart way, down to a quite unusual ending .
It is not another Guy Ritchie stuff, but something that, however not perfect, is full of ideas and even some heart.
And before it ends, you go through a lot of little crazy scenes dominated by an acting performance by Jude Law you won't believe your eyes. The director already struck me with Matador, where he gave Pierce Brosnan the performance of a lifetime, too. Even just for that reason, you should watch both pf them.

A very funny film, although it covers a violent theme where the main character is really not very nice it works.

The two main characters, Jude Law and Richard E. Grant play the parts very well.

The story is a coming to terms with life story and follows the release from prison of Dom Hemingway, who has done his time and kept quiet, but now wants his share of the haul. His best friend (Grant), acts as Dom's guide in life through the hilarious events of the next few days where Dom needs to come to terms with the fact that he is no longer really wanted by his family and associates.

Very similar in feel and style to films like "Lock stock..."

Ben Kingsley did it in ‘Sexy Beast,’ Tom Hardy did it in ‘Bronson’ and now Jude Law ‘thugs up’ in Dom Hemingway. And as most will be aware, Law is best known for his dramatic performances, where he plays softer, more gentile characters. Therefore, you can’t blame him for wanting to try something a little different. Here, in ‘Dom Hemingway’ he plays the titular role of a convict released from prison and attempting to get back into his old ways.

Now, if you read any of the publicity for the film, you’ll keep seeing the phrase ‘larger than life’ used to describe Jude Law’s character. That, in my opinion is a very kind use of language. I would describe the character of Dom Hemingway as ‘loud, foul-mouthed and very annoying.’

I have nothing against bad or offensive leading characters/antiheros, but Hemingway is just too unlikeable to feel anything for. He just lurches from one scene to the next where he goes in, acts nice and friendly, only to degenerate into swearing loudly at someone or cracking their head open.

Fair play to Jude Law – he plays the part of a horrible character well. However, his character would be better suited as the ‘bad guy’ in a film, rather than someone we’re supposed to like. The film got me thinking of ‘Layer Cake’ where Daniel Craig was the ‘hero’ despite being a drug dealer and criminal in general. However, despite his dodgy lifestyle, he was well-mannered and decent and therefore a lot easier to think of as a hero.

Fans of Jude Law will appreciate the performance he gives. However, I can’t see many people actually ‘liking’ the character he plays, which is a shame, because the character of ‘Dom Hemingway’ would probably be perfect as the villain in some sort of British gangster movie directed by Guy Richie.

Quite possibly the funniest film I have watched in a long time. It was hard to believe that I was actually watching a Jude Law film; His acting in this film is excellent & he is not the usual, easily recognisable Jude. His comic timing in this is flawless. Richard E Grant is a terrific comedy actor & in this film he does NOT disappoint. I would strongly recommend anyone to give this film a chance; The combination of Richard E Grant with Jude Law is just pure, complete & utter comic genius. Awesome fun !!

Super over the top performance by Jude Law,who looks like General Zod in Superman 2,as bonkers as Ben Kingsley in Sexy Beast,but the plot is formulaic and as it drifts from parody into normality and screaming gives way to talking it quickly loses it's way.most of the supporting cast are overdoing it,Richard E Grant in particular and some of the scenes i.e. opening a safe at a nightclub are plain stupid.A good addition to the British geezers genre,but nothing new here.

Jude Law plays the titular character, who has just been released from chokey after twelve years and wants what he is owed for not opening his mouth.

He meets up with one handed Richard E. Grant and travel to get his money. After a night of debauchery and a car accident, he loses his money and has to start again from scratch, first trying to bond with his estranged daughter.

And to get his loot back.....

Its a mix of a lot of films. Most notably Sexy Beast, Bronson, and Payback. But unlike those movies, it's weirdly bland, despite the psychedelic feel the movie has (almost Sixties like) and a wonderful performance from Law.

The first couple of acts are brilliant. Lots of swearing and cockney wide boys giving it the big one, and all the while Law, spouting out lines like a Cannon, and looking like something from Life on Mars.

But as soon as we look deeper into Dom Hemingway, the person, you found out that Dom Hemingway,mother film, is rather shallow and not as funky as the first two acts suggest.

It's when we meet his daughter, and catch up with his past, that the film loses his way, when Dom is becoming more of a real person, not the pantomime character he was to begin with, as if the makers are struggling to make him 'normal'.

But it's still watchable, Law is brilliant, and its funny in places, just a little too bland come the finale.
