Marlowe (2023) Movie Review [Final]

Today we are bringing you the Movie review of Marlowe (2022), which is currently gaining good reviews despite many factors.

Marlowe is a movie that had potential but ultimately falls flat in execution. The film follows Philip Marlowe (played by Liam Neeson), a street-wise private detective hired to find the ex-lover of a glamorous heiress, Clare Cavendish (Diane Kruger). She is the daughter of a well-known movie star (Jessica Lange). As Marlowe delves deeper into the investigation, he uncovers a web of lies that puts him in danger.

On paper, Marlowe appears to be a classic film noir detective story. The film’s cast is impressive, including talented character actors like Alan Cumming, Colm Meany, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, as well as Jessica Lange, who delivers a standout performance.

However, the rest of the cast’s performances are dull and uninspiring, with Liam Neeson playing a familiar character that he’s played many times before.

The film’s plot is muddled, with unnecessary characters added in an attempt to connect the story. Within the first fifteen minutes, viewers may feel lost in the labyrinthine plot. Unfortunately, the story fails to engage the audience, and despite the film’s 1-hour 50-minute runtime, it feels like it drags on.

One of Marlowe’s redeeming qualities is its fantastic production design. The sets, locations, and costumes capture the era’s essence, convincingly recreating the architecture and style of the 1930s. The film also features wordy, affected dialogue that talented character actors chew through.

Overall, Marlowe is a competent but ultimately forgettable film that falls short of its potential. Despite its nods to classic film noir, it lacks the suspense and natural progression that would keep viewers engaged. However, fans of the genre may appreciate the film’s production design and talented cast.
