Audience Reviews for Sherlock Holmes - Dressed to Kill

  • Jun 07, 2015
    Its the bad guys against the strange team-up of Holmes and Watson: one guy logical to a fault (or even to a brag) and Watson, a bumbling oaf. What happens in every movie is that the oaf haplessly, accidentally gives the logical guy to very clue needed to break the case. Wunderbar! The bad guys are the same in all of these. Rathbone and Bruce had a good run with these.

    The music boxes got on my nerves a bit but great work by holmes and watson. A lot of fun.

    The new version has its merits, the portrayal of Watson by Jude Law as a worthy helpmate to Holmes chief among them, although it's a little CGI heavy but Basil Rathbone is still the genuine article as far as Holmes goes. The old films are also told with wonderful ecomony usually presenting a good story in just over an hour.

    Never been a huge fan of ol' Sherlock, but after watching this sucker, I realized I just didn't give him enough of a chance. Holmes is actually badass, and this film, although laughable at part is just straight up entertainment. Here's to watching a heck of alot more.
