  • Mr Holmes

    I know some of you are Sherlock Holmes fans,

    I watched this move last night:


    Well I was a bit disappointed to say the least.
    Now Ian Mckellen, Laura Linney and Milo Parker did an excellent job, the cinematography in HD was gorgeous but the movie suffered from a distinct lack of plot. I won't go into details, plodding like Holmes himself would be the best description.
    If you're thinking of seeing this, it's worth a look but on a blurry rental, I wouldn't think I would watch it again.

    Anyone else seen it?

    I saw it last week. It was good, but a bit sad too.

      . . . lack of plot. That makes it sound like the latest Bond film.

        I saw it in the cinema. Felt it was very good, but very sad too. I felt it had a well crafted plot.

          I thought it was good too but could have been much better. Missed opportunity.

            Did they finally get tired of remaking Thunderball?
