The King’s Case Note (2017)

If you liked Robert Downing Jr’s interpretation of Sherlock Holmes in A Game Of Shadows, then rejoice because The Kings Case Note is the same film – same characters, same tone, and a plot heavily influenced by The Hound Of The Baskerville, plus some generic “intrigue in the court” plot thrown in.

Likeable characters, occasional humor, just a touch of Wuxia, a pretty solid production values make this a welcome break from the horrible films i’ve been watching lately. Don’t expect a masterpiece, but do expect to be amused in this comedy / mystery set in medieval Korea.

I would recommend The Kings Case Note; it’s funny, not presumptuous, and while it may need a bit of trimming down, it’s absolutely fine for a pleasant evening.
