Not even bad in a good way, just tedious and dumb
This is an astounding terrible movie which obviously had a pretty significant budget
To be fair here are some good points, effects, filming and sets.
Everything else was painful to watch without fast forwarding Pointless dialog Completely wrong casting for Sherlock Holmes Plot with so many holes discontinuities and absurdities Editing. If this film was edited at all it would be about 30 min long. It has many pointless scenes which add nothing to the story Bizarre non-Sherlock Holmes characters… like a brother named Thorpe who worked with Lestrade???
Definitely one of the worse movies I have ever seen and it isn’t even bad in a good way, just tedious and dumb.
The Case Of The Curious Effort.
I can’t say it’s a disappointment because I had no particular expectations, so I couldn’t have been disappointed. Yet there were too many odd elements in the film. It was disturbing, really.
First, and most important, Ben Snyder as Sherlock Holmes doesn’t pack enough juice into the role. It’s not that he gives a poor performance, just that he’s miscast. It’s easy to be spoiled after a diet of Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett, true, but Snyder is too short, a little frail, and has a high piping voice that, with the aid of the poor sound, tends to cloak the dialog. He’s not Sherlock Holmes, although he’d probably make a fine subordinate character — not a greengrocer, maybe, but a greengrocer’s shop assistant. Gareth David-Lloyd does better with Dr. Watson and Lestrade is about right.
It was directed by Rachel Goldenberg. Along with her DP, she decided to shoot it all in a kind of gloomy sepia atmosphere, in a London where the sun never shines. Lots of old-fashioned industrial junk in the settings, giant gears wheels, walking beams, and perambulating mechanical dinosaurs. She spends about ten minutes on a scene of Watson clambering up and down the face of a cliff that would have been more effective in half that time. There are some noisy clashing flashbacks to events that last only an instant and come straight from CSI. And there are a few insignificant anachronisms. (The telephone wasn’t widely accepted in 1888; it came into use after it was adopted by Queen Victoria later.) It owes little to Conan-Doyle except the handful of principal characters. Holmes gets to pull of two or three of his amazing deductive stunts, including diagnosing a case of mercury poisoning (or something) in a cadaver he’s no more than glanced at. Even here, Mycroft has become Thorpe, for some reason. It isn’t insulting, an offense to one’s sensibilities.
If there’s nothing else on, and if you’re not a purist, it’s worth watching, but it’s not worth seeking out.
