During the establishing scene of Baker Street near the start of the film construction workers are seen in the street. A sign says, "'UNDERGROUND' Railway Construction Keep Out". In 1891 the railways being constructed under London were yet to be collectively called 'UNDERGROUND' and the logotype used on the sign, with the larger initial U and final D, was not seen until 1908.

Dr. John Watson:
The year was 1891. Storm clouds were brewing over Europe. France and Germany were at each other's throats, the result of a series of bombings. Some said it was the Nationalists. Others, the anarchists. But as usual, my friend Sherlock Holmes, had a different theory entirely.

Sherlock Holmes??? Didn't seem like Sherlock to me.
This Hollywood movie is a disgrace to the intelligent, wise, intuitive detective "Sherlock Holmes" character. Instead of being focused on his detective skills, it focuses on special effects and violence so much that his character and the shallow plot are minimized. Therefore, if you enjoy Hollywood movies with special effects and violence more than plot, then I recommend it. However, if that is what you want, then why see "Sherlock Holmes"? There are hundreds of movies with that emphasis, and with even better special effects. If you enjoy a good Sherlock Holmes detective film with an engaging, suspenseful plot, then you will be tremendously disappointed!
