  1. Marc's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    There are references to characters you do not see, or see very little, and suggestions of insight into the mind and abilities of the lead detective that never come again. Feels like jumping in mid stream, probably meant for those who have read the novels. That said it is no worse than a standard serial murderer/detective drama set in a beautiful city. There is a baseline that it is difficult to fall beneath.

  2. msmichel's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    Mainstream French thriller from director Regis Wargnier (Indochine, East-West) that tells a rather convoluted but entertaining tale that winds up more Dan Brown than Umberto Eco. A rather silly and pat conclusion takes away from its earlier pleasures.

  3. captainfez's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    Unfortunately, the town crier doesn't get the plague.

  4. zi's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    I tried. I just couldn't get into it.

  5. rob johnstone's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    Terrific movie adaptation of the book, compelling and excellently well paced.

  6. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    Lourdingue, interprétation pataude (pourtant de bons comédiens), recherche maladroite d'une atmosphère "originale", musique paresseuse... Comme le dit Michel Serrault : "c'est bien une réplique de flic"... et toutes les répliques sont ainsi attendues... À force de se vouloir subtil, c'est autant manichéen que le contraste N&B d'une fourrure de panda.

  7. BUTTAUD's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    Oh combien le roman est plus riche que ce petit film distrayant avec des acteurs bien sympathiques mais bien mal dirigés.

  8. Rubis's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    pas ouf, je pense que la 3eme étoile va plus au livre qu'au film

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

    Au vu de l'excellent et prenant roman de l'écrivaine Fred Vargas, cette piètre adaptation frise presque le lamentable et l'insipide. Il est vrai que la complexité de l'intrigue policière et la pléthore de personnages ne sont pas en faveur d'une transposition aisée. Il est vrai aussi que le cinéaste ne s'est jamais distingué par l'envergure et la transcendance de ses réalisations antérieures. www.cinefiches.com
