Sherlock Holmes has been the subject of many adaptations. If we all have in mind the famous books of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, we do not forget the films with Robert Downey Jr, much more recent, or even the private detective, Basil. Finally, Netflix had already proposed a few months ago a female adaptation based on the character of Enola Holmes.
This time, Netflix, streaming platform par excellence, has decided to add the animated film Sherlock Gnomes. This one is not an original, but a purchase of the broadcast rights from MGM, the film dating from 2018.
In this film, we find Sherlock, in the form of Sherlock Gnomes, accompanied by his famous sidekick Gnome Watson. They are inevitably confronted with the big and nasty Moriarty, a pie mascot. After a fight, Moriarty is presumed dead by all. All, except Sherlock who thinks that he has escaped his fate to prepare other Machiavellian plans. The two partners then go on a hunt for clues to find the trail of their nemesis and fight it out once and for all.
If the film does not revolutionize the genre, it still has the advantage of introducing the famous character to young people. What to create vocations?
Unlike other more recent films, such as dragon geniusThis film is an American production and not a Chinese one. So we find much more familiar features and a subculture closer to ours.
Finally, for the adults who will watch this movie with their children, the voice cast is very rich! Thus, it is Johnny Depp and Chiwetel Ejiofor who interpret the famous duo. We also find James Mc Avoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Mary J Blige, Ozzy Osbourne and many others!
