Holmes Lives!
20 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this film. A very modern Jane Watson frees Sherlock Holmes from cryogenic freeze, where he has been preserved for over 80 years into a modern world of computers, copiers and cars. Michael Pennington is superb as the befuddled Holmes who proves himself the greatest detective in any century. The mystery is a delight and somewhat of an epic by TV movie standards. I only wish the TV series suggested by the final scene had come to pass.
