Like Meow, its a minor but welcome return: Hopefully, Hare will do more for Landis than Meow did for Bogdanovich, but considering the projects less th ..
"I liked the film enough that Im going to give it a second viewing, but I cant see that an awful lot will improve."
Den Of Geek
This is probably more damning of the film which is so dull and stale that it simply stops without anything happening.

Maybe every generation just gets the Burke and Hare movie it deserves.
High production values and a plethora of cameos in Burke and Hare simply cant make up for a weak script of this magnitude.
So to make it funny, the screenwriters both rewrite history and weave in a series of gags that are amusing but never hilarious.

What a pity he didnt bring along a stake to drive through the heart of this witless drivel.

Burke & Hare is one of those movies that looks like it was a lot more fun to make than it is to watch.
Burke and Hare is a waste of a good cast and a better story, as well as a hollow reminder of how John Landis seemingly has lost his touch.
But while the picture looks fantastic, with a richly detailed period production design and a darkly colorful palette, it never manages to be very funn ..
Its principal defect is that it just isnt funny. Tasteless Yes. Vulgar Undoubtedly. But funny Not really.
This is a painfully dull film which is about the worst thing anyone could ever say about one that is supposed to be funny.Dont bother.
Urban Cine File
Sticking too closely to that template (while tossing in lots of blood and cursing) yields a film that is sporting but forgettable.
New York Post
The cast are game but the script offers little assistance and is neither very funny nor especially gruesome.
Its a horror film without the horror.In short, its stupid as hell and frankly, Im embarrassed for everyone involved.
The first trailer for John Landis Edinburgh set black comedy went online today, and it looks to be a fine return to form.

While much of the comedy might have garnered a few laughs as part of a Two Ronnies skit back in the Seventies, here it feels dated, predictable and bl ..

Hard core horror movie fans will also notice a few nostalgic touches.
And it should come as no surprise that the man who hasnt made a good film in 25 years has produced another dud.While its not an offensively bad film, ..

Flat footed, tone deaf and finally cynical, Burke & Hare wont be sending viewers out on a comic high so much as on a wearisome low.
Dustin Put Man
The movie is simply too mild its neither very scary nor very funny.

While the script could have done better, theres still plenty to enjoy here you just wont die laughing.
Missing amongst the blood, mud and heavy accents is any sense of humanity.
Matts Movie Reviews
What distinguishes British humor from American humor is that its more irreverent and less mean spirited at its core.

New York Time Out
Burke And Hare is sadly disappointing.Yes, its sporadically funny, but when it does make you laugh, its not out loud.
Standard Net Au
But a really good cast and good art design carry this film like a Hammer horror film but with more levity.
Landis is too out of practice. Im not sure 1981 Landis would have nailed it, but I know 2011 Landis doesnt.
Alas, despite some genuinely great performances from our leads, witty dialogue and the occasionally effective grim set piece, the film is a misfire of ..
