An atmospheric period-piece murder mystery, The Limehouse Golem combines elements of Sherlock Holmes and Jack the Ripper.
Not so much a bad movie as a superficial, uninspired, and forgettable one.
Equal parts mesmerizing and perplexing, intriguing and frustrating.
This is a vital, original, and emotionally potent chapter to one of the longest-running movie series out there.
Looks and feels like something made for Cartoon Network or Amazon Prime rather than a big-screen offering.
Undone by a litany of bad decisions and the underlying weakness of the core material.

Although this "Homecoming" serves its purpose, it’s just a forgettable waystation on the MCU map, where all roads lead to "Infinity War".
An ensemble of solid performances with some affecting moments is ultimately undone by a storyline that treads too-common ground for American indie films.
The movie has its pleasures but not enough of them to make it worth the heavy time investment.
