No Clue

I wish I had more to tell you about Sherlock Holmes, but to be honest, it's not really worth a very long blog post. Soon after it was over, I had pretty much already forgotten about it. Now granted, I saw it after a bit of an exhausting weekend, so I was dozing off during the movie, but doesn't that just tell you enough right there? Despite a crackling performance by Robert Downey Jr. and an impressive production design, this Sherlock plays more like a typical bromance/buddy-cop comedy transposed to the 1890s. It's big and macho, not exactly loyal to the original Arthur Conan Doyle vision, and while it's not bad, it's not great either. It's just above average, so I'm giving Sherlock a C+.
