Loose adaptation of Hornung's Raffles by talentless idiots
26 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember it well. It was one of those adaptations, rather like the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes, where you wonder if the film-makers have read any of the stories or know anything of the character at all. It stinks, really stinks. It is embarrassingly bad in fact. It was obviously designed as a pilot for a possible series but was so bad it never went any further. Nigel Havers is miscast but does his best with the risible dialogue & story. Everyone else involved was quite simply appalling.

It remains a mystery why producers think they can improve upon a classic. Be wary of changing something unless what you're changing it for is as good, or better, than the original. If not, stick to what's written. It is a classic for a reason.
