Hollywood Reporter


Simply put, Sherlock Gnomes is a dreadful bore.

Variety (USA)


No one's bothered to figure what this movie has to offer beyond terrifically tactile stone figures going through the motions of what might be called Generic Animated Action Rescue Plot ...

New York Times


Robbing Mr. Depp of his indispensable physical presence only highlights the ceramic stiffness of the jokes.

Entertainment Weekly


Sherlock Gnomes doesn't quite have the originality and spark to make it a pop-culture phenomenon. Yet it's still an enjoyable family adventure with a solid message.

Sydney Morning Herald


It's one for the gnome buffs.

The Age (Australia)


If you're scratching around for something you can bear to sit through with your kids, this is - to quote another British classic - mostly harmless. Otherwise, it's one for the gnome buffs.


This was a slow moving movie. It was an ok storyline. Themes taken from the regeneration's of Sherlock did not help or make this unique. Overall for me it was ok.
