‘Mr Holmes’

mr_holmes_ver2_xlgRuminative and meandering, an at times doddering 93 year-old Sherlock Holmes looks back at his last case of 20 years previously. By design, the film is slow and stately paced.

Yet in spite of wonderful performances by Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings, Gods and Monsters), Laura Linney (Kinsey, The Savages) and young newcomer Milo Parker, Mr Holmes is hardly compelling and is somewhat dissatisfying.
