As much a masterpiece as its predecessor
25 June 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

If you have seen "Sherlock Holmes I.," you know that for excellence of photography, the Great Northern Film Company cannot be excelled, you know that the acting is practically what you would expect to see at the famous "Comedie Française" of Paris, and you know that the manufacturers of this film pay the greatest attention to all the details and are unsurpassed in their staging. "Sherlock Holmes II." is as much a masterpiece as its predecessor, and "Sherlock Holmes III." promises to hold the same rank. In "Sherlock Holmes II" you will find the same quiet, cool and possessed detective, his clever errand boy Billy, and the other performers in their well-studied characters. – The Moving Picture World, February 27, 1909
