murder scene shockingly graphic
I have watched this movie several times (fortunately I was able to buy the CD 2 years ago) and it is among my favorites. However--watching it the other night I was shocked and upset at the scene where the blood splatters on the five-year-old Sherlock. This graphic and unexpected sequence was--in my opinion-- gratuitously violent.
I think for a movie that is overall light-hearted and witty, that Meyer went a little too over-the-top with this.
