Rating:
R
Sleuth is a 2007 remake of the 1972 mystery classic about two male rivals matching wits over the woman they both love. Andrew Wyke (Michael Caine) has achieved great success as a mystery novelist. When his wife leaves him for a struggling actor, Milo Tindle (Jude Law), Wyke ingeniously plots his revenge. He invites Tindle to his luxurious manor to discuss, as gentlemen, the romantic triangle they find themselves in, but soon veers the conversation to a money-making proposal. He wants Tindle to steal his wife's jewelry and they will share in the profits. Tindle suspects Wyke of playing him for a fool, but he also finds Wyke intriguing. Over the course of a stormy evening, the two men will find themselves caught in the other's intricate web of deceit, but only one can ultimately win as the stakes grow higher. Kenneth Branagh directs this updated adaptation of Anthony Shaffer's popular play.

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    Language this lethal has all but disappeared from the movies, and it's an unmitigated pleasure to observe Caine and Law attack it with such ferocity. Sleuth is nasty fun.

    The results will be received with a large, loud yawn by all but the most loyal fans of Pinter and hard-working co-stars Michael Caine and Jude Law.

    The result is that what was once insignificant is now insufferable.
