The only mystery to this film is that such a paper-thin premise actually made it the big screen - this is dvd fodder at best - Bruce Willis phones in yet another performance (making me wonder if he'll ever be great again)...Poor on so many levels it's incredible...
Having seen the trailers, I was highly dubious - Holmes as a bare-knuckle boxer?? But i was really surprised, it was actually a very clever reinvention of much-loved characters - the dialogue is sharp, action and effects aren't gratuitous and the basic spine of the story is surprisingly faithful to an original Conan-Doyle format (possibly why it's such a success)...can't wait for the sequel...
