A Haunting In Venice Review
In his 3-star review of A Haunting In Venice , ComicBook.com movie critic Charlie Ridgley agreed with ComicBook Nation host Kofi Outlaw that the film is at odds with itself, even while being entertaining overall:
A ghost story and a murder mystery shouldn't have much of a problem coexisting, but Branagh directs this film as though they're two separate entities. When the film is only focused on its haunted elements, it's intense and intriguing. When it's focused on being a whodunit, it's as entertaining as Branagh's first two Poirot films. But for some reason, those two things can't live together with any sort of harmony. There's a constant whiplash from one to the other, from the tone of each scene down to the way they're shot. At times, it feels like there are two different movies here. They're both pretty solid, but it's exhausting to watch them play tug-of-war.
