Critic Reviews of "The Oxford Murders"San Francisco ChronicleAugust 13, 2010
This purported whodunit thriller never solves its main mystery: How and why did this film get made in the first place?VarietyMay 22, 2008
A polished but verbose whodunit that's surprisingly buttoned-down given helmer Alex de la Inglesia's rep for comicbook wackiness.San Francisco ExaminerAugust 13, 2010
Hurt sells the silliness almost convincingly, but even from such a skillful pitchman it comes out sounding, finally, like junk.Shared DarknessAugust 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.Examiner.comAugust 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.OregonianAugust 05, 2010
So bad it's good, then? Alas, the whole thing is uncomfortable and boring, scotching any ironic enjoyment of its awfulness.BrianOrndorf.comJuly 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.ViewLondonMay 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.BBC.comApril 29, 2008
The murders are simply chalk marks on a blackboard with no build-up and little fallout.Empire MagazineApril 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.
