First, the genre is incorrect neither Thriller nor horror here is not in sight. A classic detective story with reflections aloud, the main character, a constable from Scotland Yard, who was sent to investigate a series of murders of a mysterious killer.
The atmosphere of this film, the genre is dark, the end of the nineteenth century, madness Suite and obsession with work. All together contributes positively to enjoy the detective story, but unfortunately with “the Golem” is somehow not.
First, the number of suspects becomes very obvious, and closer to the middle of the film and the identity of the prankster becomes not so mysterious as before. So watch “the Golem” with interest, it turns out only half of screen time, the rest is entertainment is the simple “inspection”.
The role of the protagonist has been surrounded by some of the secondary characteristics in the story that did not add any complexity to his character, no sense of history. As the main character did not cause any interest, whether because of poorly written script, poor acting of Olivia Cooke. An overrated film that is not even close in quality, which would have had to declare the rating of foreign critics.
