Sherlock Gnomes is a sequel to 2011 animated film Gnomeo and Juliet which was loosely based upon William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. It is a world based upon the fact that everyone in here is named as a Gnome in someway or the other. In this installment, Makers decided to take the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes which is based upon the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This must be a millionth adaptation of Holmes on screen but it does not take much from his characteristics despite of the name which might help in getting the attention of the audience.
Makers of this film are about 3 days away from making a character called Frodo Gnomes as they are taking the legendary ones. Gnomeo and Juliet have now hired a detective by the name of Sherlock Gnomes and his assistant Gnome Watson to investigate the mysterious disappearance of garden Gnomes. Sherlock gets to the case and the world of the film gets bigger and deeper as the investigation begins. It is a really light on the heels entertainment for mostly children but statistically adults also like to indulge themselves in a rather innocent world of these films.
Prolific actor Johnny Depp finally tried his hand with Sherlock even if it’s just the voice and he has the hyper verbal vocabulary speech effect that Sherlock uses to describe his peculiarly sharp observations. Johnny did a good job though actor does not really have a control on the outcome of the performance in completely animated films. James Mcavoy reprises his role as Gnomeo and has much less to do in this one than the first part. Emily Blunt gives the perfectly engineered voice to Juliet. Chiwetel Ejiofor is here to make do with his animated Watson and outcomes are largely favorable. Overall this one is intended to be mediocre and it is hence should be watched accordingly.
