What you think of this film will have a lot to do with whether you have read the Holmes stories. I have been reading them since I was a child, and parts of this film made me squirm.
This is a “re-imagining” of the classic character, which is fine as a general rule, and I shrugged and gave myself over to it. After all, writers and film-makers have been playing with Holmes for years.
