SHERLOCK HOLMES is nowhere near as bad as the trailers had me fearing, but still nowhere near watchable. The first half was involving, but the second half quickly devolved into rubbish. Why cast three excellent actors in the male parts, and then cast two terrible actresses in the female parts? Although the script had some nice allusions to the stories (I've read them all multiple times), some of the references seemed forced and drew me out of the story, which wasn't hard, because there wasn't much of a story to begin with.
It's too bad, the promising start raised my hopes, only to cut them off at the knees.
