There are some disappointments, many of them in the look of the thing. This Holmes absolutely loves mobile phones and text messaging. In several sequences the screen is covered in subtitle-style text showing us the messages being sent or received. Indeed, in the first instance we see several phones all receiving the same message at the same time, the legend “Wrong!” rising from each in unison. This might be a pretty economical way of avoiding endless cut-aways to cellphone screens, but it is inherently distancing and will, I think, date rather badly. Score one against director Paul McGuigan.
