Sherlock's Previous Life, 24 February 2014
Author: westsideschl from United States

OK, perhaps a bit cultural centric but if you imaginatively wanted to know what Sherlock was doing in a previous life long ago, well, quite a long time ago then Dee is your man.

Haven't decided yet whether he needs a Watson since he's so Renaissance capable.

Great sets, graphics - hopefully they did their research and most (excluding the fantastical parts, of course) of the visuals are authentic recreations.

Martial arts scenes were typical wire with a bit more spins and tumbles and even more not so believable jumps. Acting is OK but not important as this film is about thought provoking storyline and dialogue. Speaking of dialogue it would be helpful if the subtitles stayed on a bit longer as we have to process both language and the visual nearly at once.
