  • Summary: The more I listened to Depp on one extra and Thompson on the other, I wanted to like this film more than I did.

The Rum Diary

The Digital Fix
6 March 2012
  • Summary: The Rum Diary manages to do what you'd never think possible with a Hunter S. Thompson story: it's flat-out boring. This Blu-ray version presents decent video and audio with a package of extras that isn't extensive, but which does contain a superb documentary about the gestation of the movie project.

High-Def Digest
14 February 2012
  • Conclusion: With 'The Rum Diary,' Johnny Depp returns to the chaotic world of Hunter S. Thompson, resulting in an entertaining but decidedly mixed experience. Paul Kemp's journey toward artistic awakening is interesting, but the whole endeavor proves to be surprisingly conventional, mostly lacking the spark...

  • Conclusion: Not that long ago, The Rum Diary would have been a typical Johnny Depp movie, attracting the actor's modest but devout fanbase. Now, it feels like a minor diversion from his lucrative gig as one of mainstream cinema's biggest stars.

The Rum Diary

BluRay Authority
8 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Johnny Depp is one strange man. Not in the sense that he’s scary, he’s just the epitome of the eccentric actor. And, you know what, he’s a darn good one (actor) to boot. He might have made more a name for himself over the last decade as the irreverent pirate Capt.

The Rum Diary (2011)

blu-ray.com
24 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The Rum Diary is a scattered picture with an appealing first half and a meandering, detached second. The film never really comes to cohesion, which is an asset in a movie metaphorically drenched in liquor, but when it tries to build up a rather bland story about a drunken hero versus a sober tycoon,...

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: I was twenty-nine when I read The Rum Diary and it changed my life forever. I’m not a big drinker let alone a violent alcoholic, but Hunter S. Thompson’s novel resonated with me in that particular moment because it’s so much more than that.

  • Excerpt: The demented genius of Terry Gilliam ’s adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas lay in Gilliam’s ability to find a stylistic analog to Thompson’s acid-soaked misadventures in the desert.
