It looks like the sort of movie that Kingsman: the Secret Service was only pretending to be (but more on that later). Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer have decent enough fake accents, and it doesn’t look like they’re taking things too far over the top of what the original series did (admittedly, that’s a pretty high top).
Guy Ritchie was never a great fit to do Sherlock Holmes, but campy ’60s-style action seems right in his wheelhouse. Consider this the first time in years I’ve been interested in one of his films.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
