Storyline

When Professor Moriarty escapes the gallows - literally in a puff of smoke - Sherlock Holmes finds himself once again in pursuit of his old nemesis. Soon after the escape, Holmes' brother Mycroft asks him to work at identifying a leak in British Intelligence. Uncharacteristically, he refuses to help until he realizes that Moriarty is behind the missing State secrets. He learns that a very seductive woman, Sophy DeVere, has been hypnotizing one of Mycroft's young assistants to steal the information. When Moriarty is unable to decode the secret message he has stolen, he kidnaps Mycroft in order to get the information. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The issue of "The Strand" arrives at Baker Street which contains Watson's account of "The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb", dating the events to March 1892. Holmes' comment that it is "Appropriately accompanied with inaccurate and melodramatic illustrations" is a nice acknowledgement that neither Woodward nor Hillerman reflect the sleuths as depicted in Sidney Paget's artwork accompanying the tale.

Goofs

The opening hanging scene has a public hanging using the large American style knot, never ever used in Britain - Prisoners were given a black cap, instead of a white but the last public hanging in Britain was in 1868, 32 years before the movie is set. See more »

A good show
15 May 2000 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a great show for Sherlock Holmes fans, and even non-fans. See, most people who don't like Sherlock Holmes because of the lack of action fans can cope with. This film has action. My brother liked this. I'm not saying he hates Sherlock Holmes, he just isn't a fan. This became his favourite movie. See? Fans and non-fans. Even those who hate Sherlock will adore this.
