"Better than the Holmes we've grown accustomed to." Sandra and I both really enjoyed the film. If you want to know why, I'll comment down below eventually. My comments and those of others will end up full of spoilers, I'm sure. You have been warned. The Hans Zimmer soundtrack is wonderful. It sounded a wee bit anachronistic at first, but I was sold on it after thirty seconds. And yes, I'm turning into a regular Hans Zimmer fanboy - Batman Begins, Angels & Demons, Kung Fu Panda, Pirates of the Carribean, and now Sherlock Holmes. I own them all, and just created a master "Hans Zimmer" playlist. Feel free to suggest stuff I'm missing.
