Sherlock Holmes (2009). – 4/5
Good stuff – I liked that way it went beyond just a mystery, but brought in some super-natural and such. Also, the action was really good.
This is a good comparison to many recent action movies where the action is so complicated and over-done that it’s just a confusion of movement. For movies like “G.I. Joe” and “Transformers” I kinda have to just try to enjoy the ride. Also, I have to enjoy it a bit on credit (“well, it’s clearly well done so I guess it’s good action.”).
But w/ Holmes, they actually do much of the action in slow-motion so you don’t miss a thing. It’s like holding themselves up to the light so you can see every little detail. That’s bold and well done.
