Audience Reviews for Sherlock Holmes
WOW. I watched this as I hadn't seen a bad film in quite a while, and Asylum never fail to disappoint. But here they did fail. It was genuinely well written and also a lot of damn fun. Watson recalls the story of Sherlock that has never been told. After a number of monster attacks around London, ranging from giant octopus to mini-tyrannosaur, Holmes is drafted in to solve the case. As always, the mystery must come to a logical conclusion of some sorts. So how did Asylum manage to create an impressive piece of entertainment? First of all, they managed to get some genuine talent. Snyder, David-Lloyd and Keating all give memorable performances and are faithful to their characters. They take it seriously, but also have fun, but never forget that this is just a knock-off meant to cash in on the Hollywood release. The script develops the characters very well, and the villain has a reason to be the way he is. It's almost emotional at times. By the end, when a giant mechanical dragon takes to the skies, it completely had me. This has the same quality, in both writing and production, of a very good Doctor Who episode. I hope The Asylum put just as much effort into future releases.
