More Info:
  • Steven Rea

    Mr. Holmes is about how the past defines us. It is also very much about regret and trying to put things right.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Miriam Di Nunzio

    McKellen is brilliant throughout, his piercing blue eyes revealing the gallantry of youth and the sadness of a life’s worth of memories slipping further away. His understated and charming approach to the role makes it all the more potent and engaging.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jessica Kiang

    Mr. Holmes is not so much the story of Holmes' last case, as the story of his last choice: whether to go gentle, or whether to rage against the dying of the light.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Sherlock Holmes is totally cool again, which warms my dorky heart.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Maneuvering shrewdly within the boundaries of the traditional canon and aided by the impeccable performance of Ian McKellen, Bill Condon directs an elegant puzzler that presents the sage of Baker Street dealing with the one thing he's never had to contend with before: his own emotions.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Shining is nothing new for McKellen, a brilliant actor, and it's interesting to see how he and Condon portray Holmes' faculties at different times.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Paul Bradshaw

    Anyone expecting opera and opium will be disappointed. But a majestic McKellen rescues a safe script, giving us a fresh look at an icon even the most casual viewer will be (over)familar with.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The more vital subject of Mr. Holmes turns out to be our need for stories themselves and, in particular, the role of fiction as an escape from the pain and loss of everyday life.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    There will always be plenty of fictional geniuses solving impossible crimes, but Holmes, it turns out, it where the heart is.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The script by Jeffrey Hatcher is overburdened with plot complications, but Bill Condon, who worked with McKellan on “Gods and Monsters,” has a real affinity for this actor’s capabilities. He brings out his best.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Smart, sedate and well acted.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Condon and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher reward your patience by bringing the threads together in a beautiful, stirring manner that celebrates the genius of the literary icon while also honoring the man McKellen is playing.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    Like any good Sherlockian case, the stories interweave into a satisfying conclusion. And the cinematic elements fit together as neatly as the plot lines.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Don't think you can take another Hollywood version of Sherlock Holmes? Snap out of it. Apologies to Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch, but what Ian McKellen does with Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective in Mr. Holmes is nothing short of magnificent.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Mr. Holmes, derived from a novel by Mitch Cullin, isn’t quite as deep or as poignant, but amply rewards McKellen and Holmes fans willing to go with its leisurely pace.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Mr. Holmes is an elegiac, understated tale of The Detective in Winter, a rare thing in its own right.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Michael Pattison

    In an age of flashier adaptations of Conan Doyle’s classic literary character, Condon's film might be appreciated as a refreshingly old-fashioned outing, even with its own variations on the character in mind.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The film’s plots are soft and flimsy, and they don’t mesh as gracefully as they might, but they do serve as an adequate trellis for Mr. McKellen’s performance, which is gratifyingly but unsurprisingly wonderful.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The plot has an intriguing twist, and the production, in addition to Mr. McKellen’s commanding presence, has fine work by Laura Linney as Holmes’s housekeeper, Mrs. Munro, and by Milo Parker as Roger, Mrs. Munro’s son. The boy is vividly intelligent, ferociously angry and a force to be reckoned with.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    In truth, Mr. Holmes is not Holmesian at all. It is Jamesian, as shown by a wonderful encounter between Kelmot and Holmes — an attraction of opposites, you might say — on a garden bench.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • David Rooney

    This is a ruminative film of minor-key rewards, driven by an impeccably nuanced performance from McKellen as a solitary 93-year-old man enfeebled by age, yet still canny and even compassionate in ways that surprise and comfort him.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Although it’s a pleasant and handsome endeavor, Mr. Holmes hasn’t the consuming drive and sense of inexorability that marks the award-winning "Gods and Monsters."

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    The case itself ultimately proves less an involving puzzle for the audience than a lesson for Holmes in humility. Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    A satisfyingly fresh take on a character we all only thought we knew well.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    Mr. Holmes may not be the biggest or boldest recent updating of Sherlock, but McKellen’s performance alone is almost reason enough to see it on the big screen.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Condon, like this Holmes, can't quite keep everything in his story straight and clear, but he and his film come close just often enough.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Ed Frankl

    Its stately pace doesn't preclude Mr. Holmes (2015) from being a delightful romp all the same.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    Sir Ian McKellen is a pleasure to watch as an elderly Sherlock Holmes, though the drama isn't as compelling as it might have been.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    This is Holmes intentionally slowed down to a hobbling, reflective, end-of-life pace: dare we call it refreshing? It’s a film to rummage around in, picking up old clues, considering their meaning, and turning them in your palm.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It is an elegant if slight piece of work, touching and intriguing by turns, but hampered structurally in that it relies on two separate flashback sections.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    Mr. Holmes has moments of palpable regret and loss, but visually speaking, it looks like a blandly touching movie about a lonely old man who befriends a scrappy kid and learns about the magic of storytelling. Eventually, that’s the unexciting destiny it fulfills.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Unfortunately, director Bill Condon and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher are clueless, and come up with an incoherent, implausible, contrived mishmash.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    I found the whole thing pokey and plodding, but there’s no denying the fact that even when sitting through Mr. Holmes seems numbing, Mr. McKellen is a force so powerful he’s his own reward.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Stories about mythic figures at the end of their days are compelling — but they still need some zing. That’s what Mr. Holmes is missing.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    Bill Condon ignores the delights and hardships of becoming an artist in lieu of simply presenting the long-touted liberating effects of art.
