Mr. Holmes

Crime Drama


 

An aged and weary Sherlock Holmes reflects back on his last unresolved case.

In this version of the famous detective, we are introduced to a much more reserved Mr. Holmes, and at the tender age of 93, he's rather dull. Exploring poignant themes of growing old, reflecting on some of life's big decisions and regrets, this film is more of a human story than a who done it. Moving at a lethargic pace, apart from the odd detective moments and distinguished acting, the constant time shifts in the plot do little to perk our attention. Alas Mr. Holmes lacks vigour.
