What a cool movie. The visuals are somewhat dated, but fortunately aren't dominant.. This movie had a fairly unheralded release, it kind of slipped under the radar. I remember seeing it for the first time on cable TV, and it totally floored me. Despite being a box office flop, it's originality and story telling inspired enough of a cult status, that sequels were made, and despite the utter failure of the sequels, fans demanded enough of it that they produced a syndicated show that lasted for six years.. Lambert was definitely typecast in this movie; no matter with Clancy Brown in it without seeing The Kurgan in my head, walking through the church and licking the priest.. This film definitely shifted the way movie making was approached, and like it or not; you have most likely enjoyed something that was directly inspired by some aspect of this film.
This is a clever, if somewhat heavy handed, polemic against the traditional Judao-Christian ethos. There were times ,especially during the conversations between the two leads while driving, that had me doubled over in laughter as it unintentionally crossed over into a parody of itself. . Everything else about this series is superb.
@adonis1066 Exactly. They are two completely different monsters, as I like to say. There's really no way to compare them. They are so completely different. Honestly, if people are going to compare Sherlcok BBC and Elementary CBS, they would have to put the TV "House" in that same comparison. Although it was a medical drama, it was explicitly a modern Sherlock Holmes. House lived at 221B Baker Street in NJ.
