Not sure what to think about this film. It's hard to listen beyond Sherlock Holmes trying to do an American accent. There's lots of odd plot contradictions as well. Strange never becomes really likeable either which is the whole point apparently, even at the end I found him somewhat arrogant and irritating. Still a fun romp with some nice action sequences.
Hard to review. It's a good film, a very good film but I don't think it's an all-time classic.
A lot shorter than I remember and for some reason the story felt less involved, especially the whole Natalie sub-plot. I remembered a lot from previous viewings, not sure if that helped. I've also seen the forward version before.
If you've never seen it before make sure you keep your eyes open throughout as there are several subtle clues. The story runs backwards and it will keep you thinking long after viewing as you piece it all together.
