“(Sigh) . . . Lacking, would be my one word review of u0026quot;Sherlock Gnomesu0026quot;. Though the animation itself is nice, the basic story and lacklustre script will probably leave most of the children in the audience bored, let alone the adults. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe vocal performances are a mixed bag. With Gnomeo and Juliet effectively sidelined for a lot of the film, their performers (James McAvoy and Emily Blunt) probably give the flattest turns, but this does allow for Johnny Depp and, particularly, Jamie Demetriou to shine as Holmes and Moriaty respectively. There is a song crowbarred in around the middle of the picture from Mary j Bligeu0026#39;s Irene Adler, which is as inexplicable as it is awful. In fact, music in general it a bit of a problem for the film – with a few bars of various Elton John hits piped into certain scenes, but itu0026#39;s like hearing a panpipe version in a lift, recognisable but not entertaining. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere is, as I say, some nice animation but there arenu0026#39;t nearly enough gags that land, and certainly not enough that would appeal to any of the older kids / adults in the audience.”
