Mindhorn REVIEWS

  • Good light-hearted fun - if you were there in the 70s

    May 20th, 2017

    Well I enjoyed this movie from start to finish. It probably isn't for everyone, e.g. if you are too old or too young or from another planet. But if you remember British cop dramas from the 70s and 80s – with a bit of Starsky and Hutch thrown in (and if you have a sense of humour) then you should find some real laugh-out-loud moments here. I found...

  • What Mindhorn lacks in confidence it makes up for in wacky, wonderful humour

    April 25th, 2017

    Mindhorn is the cinematic equivalent of that friend who takes forever to decide what they want to eat: chances are you'll have a good time regardless of the decision, but that doesn't make the journey there any less frustrating. Written by lead actor Julian Barratt and supporting cast member Simon Farnaby, the film's script is scattershot to say t...

  • I laughed my eyeliner down my face

    May 18th, 2017

    Mindhorn is the ultimate treat for anyone who has an appreciation for ludicrous humour. The film is set on the Isle of man which in my eyes sets the plot up for greatness as the clash of action and crime with understated countryside life is always a winner for me! I love to see the quaintness of British life being fondly ridiculed by a silly parod...

  • Lighthearted and fun!

    May 24th, 2017

    The title says it all; this movie wants to make you laugh and leave you with a smile on your face afterwards. No nonsense, no melodrama.. The characters are real people (although exaggerated slightly), so it's not a parody - just a feel-good movie that's a little on the silly side.. Recommended! ...

  • "Yep. It's plasticine"

    May 16th, 2017

    Spoilers . The nostalgic and often cynical mockery of the '80s seems to fertilize an increasing number of films with the basis of their humour. "Mindhorn" works well and there are plenty of moments where the cheesy lines and characters provide ample laughs.. An odd looking Steve Coogan puts five minutes into this, probably to protect his investmen...

  • The Six Million Dollar Bergerac

    June 13th, 2017

    Imagine if you will,what would have come along if the British producers of Bergerac or The Persuaders or the Professionals had added that bit of Imaginative American teenage sci-fi appeal from Night rider, or the Six Million Dollar man. The result would have been MINDHORN. Isle of Man detective Mindhorn lost his real eye in some brief special forc...

  • absolutely great

    May 16th, 2017

    It is very rare now a days that you get to see a comedy film with out any adult language or those creepy scenes and Mindhorn is really an exception proving once again hat you do need a good story.I personally loved and liked this movie and i recommend it everyone who is interested in a good comedy watchable with friends. ...

  • Mindhorn...........he sees the truth!

    September 4th, 2017

    How to describe Mindhorn......take the Six Million Dollar Man, Magnum PI and Knight Rider....smash them all together then wrap it in a self destructive narcissistic washed up actor. That would best describe Richard Thorncraft played by Julian Barrett of The Mighty Boosh fame.. Barrett doesn't stray far from his Boosh character Howard Moon in terms...

  • Sunday afternoon daytime movie at best

    May 10th, 2017

    This film had some amusing moments, but none of the jokes were memorable. There was no big scene that had us rolling in the isle, and no one-liner I was muttering. . Mindhorn was made to look like some depressing loser has-been, which we got pretty early on. Unfortunately, they keep jamming that character trait down our throat constantly, so its n...

  • Simply a great fun and highly amusing comedy.

    September 15th, 2017

    Washed up actor Richard Thorncroft once had it all with his hit eighties show 'Mindhorn' where he played a bionic cop – a bit like the Six Million Dollar Man but more for a price quoted in Pounds, shillings and pence. Then a brutal murder happens on The Isle of Man and the number one suspect will only deal with the legendary detective… despite t...
