Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film's plots are soft and flimsy, and they don't mesh as gracefully as they might, but they do serve as an adequate trellis for Mr. McKellen's performance, which is gratifyingly but unsurprisingly wonderful.
Fresh: The mystery subplot lacks the ingenuity of the greatest Holmes stories, but McKellen excels, switching effortlessly between the reclusive beekeeper with a faltering memory and the elegant younger detective at the height of his powers.
Fresh: Even those who've read the book can be startled by what happens in Mr. Holmes, while they're being moved by McKellen in a role he's come to late, but with his customary elegance.
Fresh: McKellen is masterful, in a multilayered tale that navigates the no man's land between memory and fiction.
Tour de force performance from Ian McKellan in this excellent twist on classic Holmes
I’ve read previous comments saying how it wasn’t dark or suspenseful.this movie was not meant to be like that, this is him AFTER retirement, and if anyone say the original show, it wasn’t to dark. plus this was way better then the horrible ones with Robert Downey Jr.
This movie is so good. Its complex themes add greatly to the collection of Sherlock Holmes adaptations. A fascinating watch.
