They do a masterful job of giving loving nods to the original series, while bringing in themes and characters that you will remember from all of the movies. There's a big surprise that I was not expecting (although John had read something about it before we went and didn't tell me....@#$%&!) that I won't share in case you go and I don't want to ruin the surprise.
Suffice to say, the actors do a great job with these familiar characters. The "bad" guy, Benedict Cumberbatch, did a fine job at his role and I think you'll appreciate his motivations. Sigh....I want to go see it again. I can't help thinking of him as Sherlock Holmes now when I see him (by the way, when will be get some new episodes of that great British series?)
