Trivia

Irene Adler and Holmes recall a "night in Montenegro". It was speculated by many, including W.S. Baring-Gould (who did not originate the idea, however) that novelist Rex Stout's sleuth Nero Wolfe, who was born in Montenegro, was the son of Holmes and Irene Adler. See more »

The name is Bond... er... Holmes, Sherlock Holmes.
15 October 2002 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

This may be the worst Sherlock Holmes film ever. I haven't seen the '70s version of "The Hound of the Baskervilles," but it's hard to imagine that it could be worse than this.

The acting is awful, the dialog is horrible and the plot is rice paper thin. Why must we assume that whenever two characters have affection for one another they immediately jump in the sack and make a baby? How elementary could a crime committed by a 'criminal genius' be? Why must Watson, a physician, almost always be portrayed as a total idiot? Why, why, why must there be a romantic angle?

I'll stop ranting now. I do give the film high marks for production design, but that's about it. The cinematography is amateurish at best and even the lighting and makeup are bad. Roger Moore is just awful as Holmes and Patrick MacNee was obviously poorly directed to act the moron. If you want a good Holmes film, check out "Murder by Decree." For my money, it's the best. If you want Holmes with a romantic bent, find the BBC TV series "A Scandal in Bohemia" episode. As for this bit of tripe, don't bother.
