It needs more research but I’ve got a theory, any film which features Johnny Depp smoking seems to value style over substance. Or to phrase it another way: when he smokes the plot sucks.
In this case the plot is a rare book dealer is hired to authenticate and acquire a legitimate copy of a book claimed to be a book rumoured to be able to summon the devil.
As with most demonic thingies in films there is a conspiracy and things go weird – very very weird and very very slowly!
The plot wasn’t strong enough to support the film being over 2 hours long and nor was the acting!
