Yet another insult to the intelligence. Plenty of technical polish - and no plot!! Conan Doyle wouldn't recognize any of this. This movie is simply another excuse to create special effects/computer programmes without any thought as to how such things can be creatively applied. If a way can be found to make characters walk on ceilings, come back to life after nuclear explosions, fall off cliffs etc., then stick it in the movie, whether or not the scene has anything to do with anything. The end result is a complete nonsense. Cinema has the means and potential to create thoughtful, visual art. Today's 'action' movies are simply the product of clever computer programmers. If they weren't working on these epic meanderings they'd be dreaming up ways to further complicate the interest rate calculations on your credit card statements. This is not art - it's an artful fraud on audiences expecting to be entertained. There's more plot in a Sesame Street episode than this pitiful hijacking of the Sherlock Holmes character.
