Sherlock Gnomes is the newest kids animated film released on March 23, 2018. This new addition to the Gnomeo and Juliet series introduced a now investigative mystery theme movie that opened weekend at $15.2 million dollars in sales.

This sequel continues where Juliet and Gnomeo’s relationship left off, but introducing new characters like Sherlock Gnomes with nothing but a pun and no backstory.

The film starts off straight into the first fight scene in a natural history museum with Sherlock Gnomes, voiced by Johnny Depp, and his arch-enemy Marioty, voiced by Jamie Demetriou.

It then transitions to the reintroduction of the Gnomes from the first movie while they are moving into their new garden in London. At first, all the gnomes are excited to start getting their new garden ready for spring, but while Gnomeo, voiced by James Mcavoy, and Juliet, voiced by Emily Blunt, are away from the garden, the unthinkable happens. All their Gnome family and friends were kidnapped. Right away, Sherlock Gnomes and his partner Watson were on the case.

The plot rises a little bit towards the end when Watson admits to setting the whole thing up as a way to get Sherlock’s attention on how he wasn’t treating him like a partner. No more than a few minutes later, after Watson’s confession, they found out that as suspected, Marioty was behind all this instead. He ended up hiding all the gnomes in a secret place with plans to smash them. Since Sherlock already knew Marioty’s ways from past experience, he already knew how to take down his plan. In the end, the dynamic duo was successful with the help of their new team members Gnomeo and Juliet.   

Gnomeo and Juliet’s sequel left the watchers unsatisfied with a repetitive and stereotypical animation film. The plot is all over the place and doesn’t keep you on your toes very much. Most people would agree that your much better off rewatching a classic animation film you already know and love.
