Just short of being a film I enjoyed. It's worth noting I have never seen an episode of the television series, though with this being a standalone film it doesn't seem to be a problem - I didn't feel like I needed to know anything major throughout the 102 minutes at least. I almost felt entertained by 'Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears'. It's well acted, shot fairly nicely and has a decent plot. Essie Davis does good in the lead role of Fisher, while a few of the other cast members around do alright things. However, everything about this feels sluggish to me. It never feels strongly connected or exciting, with all the events just occurring without much fuss. The score is weak, also. Not a bad film at all, just a bit meh.
