Watson doesn't consider himself a talented writer; he attributes his success as an author to the public fascination with Sherlock Holmes, but Holmes refers to Watson as his biographer or zealous historian. Watson sees himself as a dedicated amateur while Holmes is a surprisingly gifted amateur. Holmes didn't like Watson embellishing Holmes's solving mysteries as a series of tales. Watson later wrote up the film's events as an adult in Kensington. See more »
None of the laced darts shot at but one of their victims are ever visible, and could not possible have travel such long distances without dropping significantly or being visible, especially when all the victims were wearing very thick winter clothing which would have been impossible to penetrate.

Throughout the end credits, the action follows a horsedrawn sleigh en route to an unknown destination. In last shot, the audience becomes privy to the surprise identity of the passenger, a key figure in Sherlockiana. See more »
I love this movie. The young actor to me was a young Sherlock Holmes. Nicholas Rowe as Sherlock.He is 6 ft 4 inches and is left handed when sword fighting. He was human, respectful, humble, polite, wise and treated Watson like a brother not like the combative relationship in Sherlock Holmes 2009 and 2010.
This story took place at a school for boys called Brompton Academy.
A dart with hallucinogenic drug made victims see scary things when hit by this dart.Things come alive that attack the victim. A cooked chicken, statues of bats or bird and more. One victim jumps out a window one runs out of church and gets killed by a stage coach and one stabs himself thinking creatures are in his shirt harming him. The special affects in it were amazing. Holmes could not attend the funeral of one of the victims because of his expulsion from Brompton Academy.
Watson's experience after being shot with the drug was funny. A grave opened up at the cemetery that had all kinds of pastries on shelves. The pastries started jumping off the shelf,on to the ground & Watson talking to each other. They were all different sizes and shapes with big eyes and some pastries started shoving other pastries in to Watson mouth cherry cream and all. Really humorous.
Earlier in the movie Watson finds a dart blowpipe which belongs to an Egyptian cult worshiping Osiris god of the underworld. This cult sacrifices live people in a hot substance. Sherlock finds this temple and stops the sacrifice and escapes. Later he realizes there is a cult operating in this city which is causing the deaths of men that knew each other.
Sherlock was in love in this movie which at the end it said the writers did not know what young Sherlock would have been like and that they just respectably put some things in.
This film was very violent and tense. It is about 145 minutes long.
It was like one of the Indiana Jones movies with the cult members running for their life and the building falling down.
This is one movie that did not disappoint me but scared the pastry out of me.
