Mr. Holmes Movie Reviews

  • Great movie!

    Great story, well acted with a great cast.
  • Very interesting (and great) film!

    very interesting take on Sherlock Holmes. Three different threads weave together as Sherlock Holmes nears the end of his life, retired. Ian McKellan gives an excellent performance as The Great Detetective and has a supporting cast that is worthy of the film. Interesting given the plot that Holmes had been retired for 30 years but it all makes sense in the context of the film. A very different take on Holmes and well worth your time.
  • Good, could have been better

    The acting is good, the plot had potential, the script and direction missed the target. You'll still enjoy it. Holmes is a character with plenty of compelling qualities. It suffers only from lack of focus on the nugget of the story to create a taut, dramatic structure. Many films miss the mark much more widely and on many counts.
  • I like the pulse of this movie

    I liked this movie but there is a funny small detail. At one moment is Mr Holmes is using an ancient syringe that if I'm not wrong the real purpose of this instrument was to wash urethra as a treatment on venereal diseases. Funny doctor's remark "Subcutaneously" Anyway all the actors are playing wonderful. Other small details is that if hydrangea are spectacular flowers unfortunately this are sterile flowers and no bee will buzz near them because the bees do not appreciate esthetics of a flower not accompanied by the nectar.
  • Like many great pictures Mr. Holmes was nuanced and may not be for everybody

    I found the movie screenplay and acting superb. Framed by a metaphorical distinction between wasps and bees, two young men who grew up without their fathers represent opposite species and Holmes himself represents both a wasp (in his treatment of the victim in his final case) and a bee (in his love for both fatherless boys).
  • Wonderfully done!

    Sean Cairne
    Brilliant story and great twist to the Holmes fiction. Music is excellent! I can’t say enough. Truly a must have for my library.
  • Miraculous! Amazing! Remarkable!

    I watched this movie with my mom. It looked really good. Mr. Sherlock Holmes did so great with those bees.
  • Cant believe it got 4 stars!

    After seeing the ratings, I rented it for only 99 cents. Even that was a waste of money. For the life of me I don’t see how it got a high rating. If you are under 70 years old, I seriously doubt you will find any enjoyment in this movie unless you’re a lifetime tv movie lover of slow unexciting movies.
  • Beautiful story, superb acting

    Kathy Baum
    Yes, this story is slow compared to the action movies of today. But it is a beautifully written and superbly acted movie that tells of the heartbreak of getting older, and the joy in letting go and connecting with others.
  • Slow but engaging. A different type of Holmes.

    I loved the performance by Sir Mickellen. Holmes is much more relatable and down to earth. Great performance by supporting casts too.
