The Hound of Baskerville

I thought I had seen every film adaption of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" at least ten times. Until I got the one with Richard Roxburgh as Holmes and -!John Nettles!-  as Dr.Mortimer! I watched it last night and must agree with a review on amazon: The first half of the movie is just gorgeous and I thought it was the best version I had seen so far, great scenery, great camera, phantastic atmosphere. But the second half was a little disappointing. It seemed they had spent too much time and money filming the 1st half and then had to do the rest as quickly as possible. Perhaps I have to watch it again. The hound was a bit ridiculous, actually, they should have used a real one, that one was taken from a ghost train.  More funny than scary.

The actors are gorgeous and very well worth watching the movie. I love Roxburgh's Holmes and Nettles' Dr.Mortimer is just adorable! Neve Macintosh is extremely beautiful, but I didn't like the ending as far as her character is concerned. The end for me was very unsatisfying. I'll just have to read the book again, I must admit, I can't really remember how the original ends.

Anyway, I think it's worth seeing and a must for every John Nettles fan!
