Sherlock Holmes (2010)

dir. Rachel Lee Goldenberg

Sherlock Holmes is an adaptation of the classic sleuth mysteries, this time made by The Asylum. The very same production house behind classics like Sharknado and Age of the Hobbits as well as such mockbusters as Sunday School Musical. Naturally, this version of Sherlock Holmes contains all the effort and care one would expect from The Asylum. Almost immediately, the film features an attack by a monster squid. By the end, we’re onto giant robot dragons. The Sherlock Holmes character himself is possibly the most prissy, unimpressive incarnation of the character ever put to screen, practically squeaking his lines with a wide-eyed childish wonder that totally undermines his alleged genius. Unequivocally the worst Sherlock Holmes adaptation, not to mention the funniest.
