No! Shit=Sherlock.

The other night I saw Sherlock Holmes, Guy Ritchie’s $80million detective romp, at the Empire Leicester Square. And let me tell you, the film was even worse than the fucking back-breaking seats.

Holmes is a massive old mess of a movie, featuring an amazingly uneven plot, mindless Ritchie-style action gimmicks, shockingly bad effects shots and narrative twists less satisfying than a bad episode of Jonathan Creek (Season 3 or 4).

85 minutes pass before the movie even gets to its one good moment. Here’s a photo of it:

NB: That’s a joke. There is actually a good moment 85 minutes in.

Downey and McAdams are far too good for this shit.

[Whereas Law has probably found his level.]

4/10.
