Really? I loved reading all the Sherlock Holmes mysteries when I was younger, and thought Jeremy Brett was pretty near perfect as the sleuth. But with Guy “I can’t make a good film” Ritchie behind the wheel and pictures like this, I fear Holmes is not set to make a triumphant return to the screen, but rather it’s another lame effort to try and cash in on something that’s beloved by many (this and this also comes to mind!) and completely ruin it.
I guess part of my problem is that new ideas and stories seem to be in the minority among films nowadays, with the many, many remakes we’ve already had, and remakes of The Karate Kid, Romancing the Stone and Flashdance on the cards, Hollywood feels a little lacking in inspiration right now!
