ratbag’s review

“Sherlock Holmes” feels like a good old-fashioned swashbuckling, action-packed, witty, adventure movie, refitted for today’s fast-paced information age — because the modern movie-goer can absorb information faster than their older counterparts, the movie throws a lot in our way.

The audience demands plot twists, intrigue, explosions, witty banter, comradery — and they get it. Luckily, the explanations that Sherlock Holmes provides during the film aren’t ridiculously far fetched, and the bad guy isn’t a complicated guy so his motives don’t need much explaining.

This is an entertaining movie, worth checking out at the movies.
