Pretty Fun
21 May 2011 | by Pickwick12See all my reviews

I ordered this on Netflix for the fun of it and definitely had a good time. It's intended for kids/tweens, but still entertaining for Holmes fans in general. Jonathan Pryce is an interesting older Holmes, and I loved Bill Paterson's Watson getting to know a sort of re-imagined Mary Morstan. Anna Chancellor made me wish she was in a different adaptation. I think her Irene deserved a more serious outlet. The story's concentration on the irregulars themselves is fun, since Conan Doyle's details about them were sketchy.

The story has some plot holes, Holmes isn't 100% canon, and it's definitely not a classic adaptation, but I'd recommend it as a fun thing to watch for an evening if you like seeing different versions. If you have kids, it's family-friendly.

Added Note: This movie is rife with Holmes tropes. Beware of stepping on them, as they sort of litter the floor with their inescapable presence.
