...Sherlock Holmes versus giant monsters? Steampunk body armor? Spring Heeled Jack as the villain? It's a low-budget film that's at least as much about setting Buffy the Vampire Slayer into Victorian England as about the Sherlock Holmes character. As a movie, how is it though? Well, not bad, it's kinda fun, but you have to be willing to stomach the low-cost production (which shows all the way through), some rather campy acting (sorry guys!), and a ridiculous plot. But it is fun!

Negatives:
- Fundamentally dishonest in coming to market with a big Hollywood version of Sherlock Holmes in the theaters (and both versions have steampunked up Victorian London)
- Cheap, cheap, cheap

Positives:
- It's fun and funny
- Much in the tradition of Peter Cushing, Dr. Who, Quartermass, and Hammer Studios
- Do you like Buffy?
- Enormous monsters being fought by Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (think of it as a reincarnation of the Godzilla vs. INSERT CREATURE HERE movies)

I can best sum this movie up as the Holmesian equivalent of Sharktopus.

If that sentence makes you shudder, for heaven's sake, go watch some Jeremy Brett, because Holmes purists will last about ten minutes before becoming very, very shouty. If it makes you perk up a little and say, "Oh yeah?" then read on.

Everything that can be wrong with a movie is wrong here. The budget is so low that Holmes and Watson get one suit each, and the whole thing appears to have been filmed on the grounds of a large dairy farm. Holmes canon is taken out back early on and shot, like Old Yeller, and it's not a clean kill. I would, in fact, bet money that the screenwriter has never read a Conan Doyle story. There's a dwarf rubber prostitute-eating T-Rex. There's a rubber Kraken -- heck, maybe it is Sharktopus, the lighting's not that great -- that surely cost more to construct than it earns from robbing ships. Did I mention the rubber Kraken robs ships? The rubber Kraken robs ships. I'm still not sure what the T-Rex is for. The historical details are weirdly, hilariously wrong -- London's East End, for example, appears to be both subterranean and lit by masses of candles, like a Sting video. Holmes is teeny and Watson is tall, and their Baker Street digs are within walking distance of a scary forest. There is a climactic aerial battle between a mechanical dragon, piloted by Holmes' evil brother Victorian Iron Man, and a heli-balloon. And Gareth David-Lloyd gives a good performance.

After 15 or 20 minutes, the whole thing becomes so improbable, wrong, and bad that it turns entertaining, and even endearing. I watched it at a big girls' slumber party, and we went from dead silence to delighted incredulity to rolling with laughter. ("It's terrible," said one friend, "but it doesn't hate life.") I suspect a little alcohol might improve the viewing experience even more, but alas, we're all lightweights. I also suspect we'll watch it again.

How "off" can a production get from a target? Well, if you're making this Sherlock Holmes film, I guess that we were lucky they spelled "Sherlock Holmes" correctly...

I actually WANTED to like this movie. I bought it sight unseen and without even any description of the movie (Amazon didn't provide one). I'm a Holmes fan and can find things to like about most productions. I thought that the opening sequence (Watson during the Blitz in the 1940s about to relate an untold Sherlock Holmes tale) was done well and set the tone perfectly.

But then it went downhill. Fast.

You have a Sherlock Holmes who is...well, MOUSEY. He certainly doesn't fit any idea that I've ever had for the character. Holmes wasn't the vibrant soul pushed to solve crimes that you might expect. The screenplay take all sorts of liberties with the Sherlockian history giving Holmes a different brother - a policeman who was paralyzed by a bullet to the back while breaking up a bank robbery with Lestrade as his partner, and (spoiler alert) Sherlock isn't Holmes' real name because who would pay attention to a detective named "Robert?" There is even a hint that it was Watson who started Holmes on the path to cocaine addiction.

The acting was fairly wooden, and the script plodding. That only made the pain last longer.

If there was one bright spot, it was the characterization of Watson. Well done.

All in all, it wasn't worth the watching. Something better just forgotten and move on. Don't buy this. If you feel the need, just rent it. Save your money for pretty much ANY other Holmes movie.

Call me crazy but I really like this movie a lot. Sure, it's from the Asylum Studios but their spin on the legendary character is pretty good. The story is a little wonky and farfetched when it comes to a dinosaur also being in the movie but hey, it's make believe, just go with it ok? The acting is pretty good too. Actors within this movie only have to be good enough to convey their emotions and to interpret the story the way it was written. You really can't take this movie too seriously and obviously nobody is going to get an Oscar for this movie either. However, even though the film is now 5 years old and this being one of Asylum Studios early releases, the special effects are pretty decent too. To me, even if the film had a bigger budget, they wouldn’t have to go all out on the CGI. With a smaller budget and the low tech computer graphics that they used for the film, it was just enough to get the job done. Again, people can do so much when given more but the big challenge is getting big results with little resources. Not over the top, but it was what they needed. Overall, I really liked the movie. I like the cheesiness that came with it. To me, these movies never get old. This one was right up my alley.

Acting: B
Story: C +
CGI: B -
Language: It’s safe to watch with the kids. No cuss’n (a little blood though but not bad.)
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
