Not a Holmes I read in books but equally fun.
on 14 November 2017
Well, I have enjoyed this. It is as far removed from a traditional Mr. Holmes of Baker St. in the Victorian London as possible. Instead, a bizarre, fast paced, crazy and fun version is created. Black magic, science, distractions, Parliament in danger, world conspiracies, unconventional Holmes and more or less traditional Watson, beautiful women and ugly bad men - all come in a quick sequence. Some good humor and excellent fights are thrown into the mixture for good measure. Just had to watch carefully as a lot of what doesn't make sense would make sense later on. Impressive dresses too!
Robert Downey's performance is first class, he and "Watson" really make a good team there.
