Awful, simply awful.
29 July 2017 | by jadflack-22130See all my reviews

This , despite the title wasn't the first film about Sexton Blake, a cut price Sherlock Holmes.i'd never heard of this film and after watching it i realise why,it's an extremely hokey and hoary and outdated atrocity.There are many scenes supposedly set at night, so dark you can hardly see what's going on, there are in fairness a couple of intentional smiles but it's mostly embarrassing in it's ineptness. Plays like an old radio programme episode transferred to film.Terrible, avoid.
